  1. Okay I'm somewhat happy to have a PB, I just had my 3rd fill 5.5ccs in a 10 band. Before these fill I could eat what I wanted and it didn't matter how fast I ate. Well I can't do that any more!!!! HOLY S---!! having a PB hurts and its not cute with the spitting YUCK!!!!. But I'm happy to have found my sweet spot, and really put my band to work. I'm not eating alot of food, I guess I'm getting a half a cup of food in one sitting, maybe even less, just not that hungry, plus my nerves are on wire, don't like PBing at all. I'm trying to chew my food very well, not a easy task, I have to train myself to do these. I also learned with this new fill I can't eat bread of annie kind it really got suck!!!

    Wish me luck on getting a handle on this new fill:scared2:

  2. I'm a little over 6 weeks post -op :wink_smile: Everything has been Great!!! the only big problem was that I was Hurgrey ALL THE TIME:embaressed_smile:. Today I had my first fill It wasn't to bad, my Dr. couldn't find the port area to put the salt Water in, so I got stuck about 6 times. He had to bring in other Dr. to try to find the right area. I'm alittle sore around my port. today I got 3ccs put in, I will go back in 4 weeks for other fill

  5. :angry_smile:Today was a pretty crappy day for me, I'm exicted that I have justed finshed my 6 months of diet councling, and I telling my family and friends about these, no one seems happy about me getting the Lapband at all, people think that I'm being lazy, and all I have to do is work out, some even say your not that big, why would you do these to yourself. Nodody seems to understand about how I feel about getting these BAND put in my body. I feel stupied for telling people that I getting it done now, I wish that I would have just keep my BIG month shut. They now got me thinking a bunch of what if's:confused2: . Man I mad at myself for say anything about my surgay to people. if something goes wrong all I'm going to hear is I told you not to do it.
