I have 3.2 cc in a 14 cc band. I've had pretty good restriction with that. Everybody is different. I've lost about 10 lbs since my fill 2 weeks ago. If I'm hungry, I eat and when I'm full, I stop. I just eat really small amounts at a time.

Hello Vivianna,

I have a 14cc band and had my first fill last week of 7cc's closer to 7.5, and I definitely feel restriction, what I found interesting, was that he kept asking me how I felt.. I had assumed that he would put in a few cc's (like around 3ish) and that would be it, but he asked me to swallow some Water while he was adjusting my band and then stopped when I told him that I could feel it in my throat. I'm getting the feeling that my Dr's are more agressive, they gave me a fill at 5 weeks out and some people have to wait until their 6-8 weeks out (They would have done it at 4 but had trouble accessing my port) It's hard to say what kind of restriction you'll have with 5ccs, everyone is so different. LONG winded reply to your question, Good Luck, I hope you do well with your fill!

      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.
