Got My First Fill Today...

Got my first fill today. 5cc in an 11cc band. On a liquid diet until tomorrow afternoon. Fill did not hurt one bit and that was without any numbing. Doctor was pretty happy with me as I was down 15 more pounds since they last saw me. He was impressed on how well I have done pre-band and even after with an empty band. I got me 5cc's in there now so we'll see how that goes...

Its almost like getting a new band, at least the first fill was for me. The eating restriction was way more pronounced and I was happy that it was.

Wow! That's a large first fill :) I have 4cc in a 10cc band and definitely feel like I'm almost at my sweet spot- another 1cc or so should get me where I want to be.

I can't wait till my first fill. The liquid diet with no restriction is leaving me hungry most of the time! How long post-op did you have to wait?

I cannot wait for my first fill. I was banded on April 17 and have been struggling the last week and a half. I go for my first fill a week from today. I wish they would of done it sooner. Glad your feeling good :)

Thank you all.

NWgirl,, I wondered if it is because of my size that I got such a large fill in the first shot.

Daddof4 I was banded on April 16th. 6 week wait for the first fill
