  1. They are in the ethinic food isle at most food stores, or buy a bag of pinto beans and cook them up and mash them.

    Getting back on the Band wagon

    I got a fill and was to tight, so they took all the fluid out. I need to get back to eating more protein, less crap.

    Still Constipated :(

    I just followed the instructions on the bottle dissolve in 4-8oz of water or beverage of choice, I had no problems with that, plus you can drink it over a period of time

    They Couldn't Access My Port

    The nurse had trouble the first time she tried for like 45 min. I was black and blue, she thought it slipped, I saw the Dr. the next day he got it no prob. Second fill fine. third took 30-35 minutes tons of brusing. It seems to be better now. The NP said that she has only had issues with 3 people me being one of the lucky ones(yea me). You might just have a trickey port or a not a good nurse. I think my port pyches my NP out now she is afraid of hurting me... But the last 2 times have been smooth sailing...Good luck!!!!
