    Lexapro 10 mg?in band

    10MG and doing great also, I havent had any problems with weight.
  2. 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:

    Losing so slow

    I had my surgey on June 24th I have only lost 14lbs I have had 2 fill so far ( 4cc). My Dr. says that we are to lose 1 to 2 lbs a week.
  4. 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. I had my first fill today:thumbup: My Dr. told me 24 to 48 hours of liquids then regular foods
