I also find it to be my signal to stop. I have only had 1 fill and didn't think I had any restriction..unless you count the hiccups

I don't see my doctor until Dec. 1st. and I just am kinda clueless. like how big is the opening on my new stomach and how fast does what I eat on the full liquid diet go through the new stomach. I am terrified of streching out the my new stoma. I am not able to get 64oz of water down the closest I have been able to manage is maybe 30oz. and I know I am not getting any where near my 900-1000 calories a day I feel I would have to eat non stop all day then how do you get your fluids in?

I just had my 3rd fill last week and since then I get hiccups non stop and they last for 30 to 45 mins before they stop. It gets tiring at times, :smile2:, but now at least I feel as though I have some sort of restriction and it is a sign that I'm getting too much air or eating way too fast.

Hello everyone,
I was banded on 11/3/08. Just three weeks ago. What kind of food are you eating? Give me an idea of your diet for a day after three weeks post surgery.

By the way, I have had alot of hiccups - some even in the middle of the night. No vomiting - what is pbing (is that vomiting). My surgeon was a great one in case anyone in Ft Worth is looking for one. Dr. David Kim who is now located in Colleyville, Texas. One of the top docs of bariatric surgery.

PBing is Productive Burping. I haven't had it much and Ive been banded for 9 months although I never had proper restriction until last week so this is all basically new for me. I have quite the case of hiccups right now which is why I'm on this sight (hey, I think they stopped! Apparently it just takes yelling at children to make them go away!)
As far as your diet, Unjury protein powder is good. They have a money back guarentee too. A really good drink is SlimFast Low Carb Vanilla drink. It's really dumb but the Low Carb version has more protein than the High Protein version. It's really good but for some reason it gives you bad breath. I still drink them because they have 20 grams protein and 180 calories. Good luck to you and congratulations on making such a positive life changing decision!

Matamace, your little froggy looks like it has hiccups or is PBing itself. :)
