  1. Hello everyone, I had my surgery on Nov 8, 07 and received my first fill on Dec 6. I had 3.8cc put into an 10cc band. During the last month I never once experienced fullnest or restriction of any sort. It is now a month later and I went for my 2nd fill on Jan 3, 08 to find out that I lost 1.4cc from the first fill and they only put it back to 3.8 again. Is this common to lose cc's in the beginning? Please give me some input. Thanks Dawn, feeling frustrated:help:
  2. I need to clarify that I did not see the Dr that day and the nurse was very rude and it was her last week at her job. She said I could have a leak and the other nurse thought that is was the amount to prime the port??? With this all said, I got out to my car and as I was driving away I phoned the Dr and spoke to the head lady and expressed my concern and how I felt I just received poor service from that nurse. (oh and did I mention.....she actually answered her cell phone for a personal phone call while she was preparing my injection with my on the table and the xray machine over me!!!) The nurse practioner made a new apt for me tomorrow to give me another fill....so maybe I will know more tomorrow!~ Thanks for all your input. Dawn

    No one in Nov?

    I just went yesterday for my first consulation and will be going back for my visit with Dr Neal on Oct 31st. As far as I know, continue to eat normal without having the "Last Supper" the night before surgery.
