Sweet Spot and what should I expect



Recommended Posts

I am now 10 months since I was banded and had my 4th fill 2 months ago. Experienced tightness even trying to drink Water, I hear it girgling down and it even gets stuck. I can hardly eat anything without it coming back up and when I do get to eat I seem to fill up really fast. I'm lucky if I get 2oz of meat down.

Is this what they mean by the sweet spot? I'm really concerned and when I talked to my Dr. after the 1st week she said it was time to get aggressive . I understand, but I feel very discouraged about not being able to eat anything.

I even dread going out to dinner with family or friends, because I don't know how and if I can eat without it coming back up.

Any suggestion, and is this what I should be experiencing if it's the sweet spot?

sounds like you are to tight, you should be able to eat enough to get your nutrition in

I had the same problem for months. I couldn't keep anything down but fought having some taken out. I finally broke down and had an unfill last Friday. For the first time in months I can finally eat a little.

So I'm wondering the same thing, how do you tell when you reach your sweet spot. Obviously at 5 cc's it was too tight, now at 3 cc's I fill like I could over eat. Maybe 4 cc's will be the charm

Im at 10cc right now. I go for my 4th fill tomorrow. I think im almost there but i can still definetly eat more than 4oz. I hope i dont get too tight. I experience tightness when i eat and smtimes i experience the tightness with Water. But there are sometimes I feel like i can eat and eat and eat.

I too would like someone to explain in detail what the 'sweet spot' is all about.

am I there and just dont know it? I know that sounds dumb but.. really am I?:)

Called my doctor today and am going in two weeks to have it checked out. They told me to stay on liquid diet till I come in hope that helps.

I thought that in time it would loosen up like it has before and it's been two months and I'm still feeling the same tightness.

All, I know is that I can't stay this way. I'm hungry but don't want to eat because I know the outcome. My doctor said you have to eat small bites, and I am but when you can't even eat yogurt or anything without getting that stuck feeling.
