First Fill Today, Feels Like The Real Beginning



Recommended Posts

I had my first fill today. I am so excited. I think I feel more excited than I did getting the band initially. I feel like this is the real start of my future. I know not to expect much restriction, but I am making a step in the right direction. I got 3cc put in, I am on a liquid diet for 24 hours and then a day of mushies, then back to regular food as I can tolerate it.

on the down side.. hungry already!! but I will get through this, this part is nothing compared to the initial post op diet!

i hadmy first fill today and i fill the same way :) I have 5cc in my band and am also on 24hrs liquid 24hrs pureed.

I am also super hungry right now too lol. My Protein shake really didn't cut it :P.

I go back every 4 weeks until I'm at my 'sweet spot'. They add 1cc each visit until I'm close and then they will go to 0.5cc and 0.25cc if necessary. They said that the goal with my current fill is to not gain any wait and with the next 2 fills or so I should start going down steadily.

I can't wait to be a success story. i feel like for the first tie in my life, I could be one.

You are going to be hungry on the shakes - they go right trough the band. Remember, they are liquid. When you eat real food you will start to feel the difference. Enjoy the journey! That first restriction is exciting.

I had mine yesterday. I am starving ;) but will get through this. I am jealous of you guys, they only put 1.5cc in mine. BUT the good news is they want me to come back every two weeks until green zone so I hope to be there soon. Best of luck to you!!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
