Arg is vomiting blood and can’t fart after life-saving gastric band surgery

James ‘Arg’ Argent has revealed he has been vomiting blood and can’t fart following his life-saving gastric band operation.

The Only Way Is Essex star had the £10k emergency surgery to help him lose weight having alarmingly piled on the pounds.

And the 33-year-old troubled TV personality now hopes he can get his life back on track after his latest health scare.

"It is quite scary when you’re just randomly being sick and you’re seeing lots of blood come up,” revealed Arg, speaking to The Sun.

"Just dealing with trapped wind is really uncomfortable. They [doctors] encouraged me to keep burping to get wind out, but you can’t even fart.

Arg has been told he can’t now eat solid food for a staggering six weeks and has been forced to swap his diet to one which revolves around liquids, including healthy shakes, smoothies and juices.

And to make matters worse, the TOWIE personality will have to inject himself every day in the stomach following the operation.

Arg revealed he is struggling to even drink water and that taking paracetamol to ease the pain has been problematic.

Arg has twice been in a Thai rehab for addiction and has struggled after two failed high-profile romances.

He had a romance with TOWIE diva Gemma Collins and also had an eight-year relationship with former TOWIE star Lydia Bright back in the day.

Lydia was Arg’s first love – and he was happy to reveal the pair have now become close pals, as she has helped him with his recent struggles.

"She’s a real friend and she and her mum have been an incredible support to me,” admitted Arg.

Arg admitted he was still “very fond” of Lydia and that he was “lucky to have her in my life.”
