  9. I experience this too, i have 10.1cc's in a 14cc band, I was told by several people that have the band that they have problems with chicken, not all the time but with the band it just the depends on the day. When was your surgery? it took me 6 weeks to eat chicken after surgery, i now eat dark meat better than chicken breast
  10. It is going to be quiet of a ride, some days are great, some are Good, (lol) you will you through a Period when yon feel it is Too slow of a process, trust me I still do. But when the time comes, and you sometimes don't even recognize your own self, The joy Begins!!!!! There will be times when you feel like eating up store, and you will on some days, just know it is normal. Whatever you do, Don't, I repeat don't eat any Solid meat until you have had your 1st fill(4-6 weeks) Good luck Let the Journey begin. let me know I can help
