When can I get a fill?



Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I was banded on Feb 26th. I started soft foods yesterday. Vegetables never tasted so good! Anyway, I don't feel full, I don't have a problem with drinking too fast and I'm wondering why? I've also only lost 10 pounds. I haven't seen my doc for my follow up yet, but is it too soon for a fill?

Really it is totally up to your doctor. Everyone is different. Good Luck.

Only 10 lbs? Have you ever lost 10 lbs in 2 weeks before?

You answered your own question with the fill comment. You will not feel full(and that's not the goal, satiety is the goal) until you get enough fills to give you adequate restriction. And you may always be able to guzzle Water.

My doc waits 6 weeks. Honestly, this is a time for healing not really weight loss. Keep reading....the veterans have great advice about this and PATIENCE has alot to do with it. This was hard for me to resign to...but I'm glad I did because it just helps me focus on what I need to be doing....which is ....eating slowly, taking small bites, choosing better foods, etc.

Have a great day!

Talk it over with the doctor. You seem to be doing well. Losing weight is a journey not a race, and it sounds like you are doing well. I waited for 6 weeks for a fill, and even that did not make me feel overly restricted. Eat the right foods in the right amounts and you will lose, fill or no fill!

Yes, I have lost more than 10 pounds n 2 weeks before. It's just a little disappointing to me considering I am not eating solid food, that's all. I'll get over it.

Renee doesn't realize she hijacked your thread.

Renee, you should start your own topic so more people will respond and see it?

Weight lost the first 6 weeks is mostly Water loss. But all the drugs and fluids they pump into you during surgery can increase your weight. Also, liquids can contain calories, sodium, carbohydrates that make you retain fluids.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
