First fill yesterday



Recommended Posts

I was banded in July and had been doing well up till about 2 months ago when I started to feel more hungry more often. I had my checkup yesterday. I was at the point that after eating, within about 45min to 1hr I was hungry again. I told the Dr and they gave em a fill of 4cc's. He had me drink a large mouthful of Water. When I did I noticed the restriction but I must have had gas from drinking to fast cause it felt like I had to burp but couldnt. I told him and he pulled all the fill out and it felt no different. It seem like it puzzled him that removing the fill didnt change me which didnt make me feel good... When I sat up I did burp and felt a little better. I walked the mall after and started feeling better yesterday. Today I feel OK and have not had problems with water, Adkins shakes or Jello except the burping part like when first banded. My question is... Is this normal was or was I overfilled? I dont have heartburn and have not PB'd ever. Thanks for reading my blog/thread.

I have had that problem where as the fill went in I felt the need to burp and sometimes couldn't. The times it happened and I didn't say anything I ended up overfilled and going back for an unfill. I don't know what it means, though, I just know it has happened.

Good luck.

That is where my confusion is... I did describe my feeling to him and he did fully unfill and nothing changed for me. His puzzled look wasnt reassuring. Maybe I should have told him lets try 2cc not 4cc and see how that goes. But that should be his job... I guess time will tell when I can go back to full solids. It just stinks cause im 3hrs from the Dr, so I have to take the day off work to see him.

So after all that you ended up with NO fill at all? That stinks, especially since he is so far away!!!! I agree with you he should have tried 2 or 3 cc.

Good luck, Mimi

Sorry I should have posted more clearly. I did get the fill of the full 4cc's. He filled me, had me drink and then unfilled me cause how I felt. He then filled me back to 4cc's said well I'll have you stay in the area for an hour or so because I live so far away. I walked and started to feel a little better but still just not sure if what I feel is normal. His reaction just made me nervous. I'm not normally a nervous person but I dont like the method of drinking Water and have ME judge only. I would much rather have the Upper GI and me tell him how I feel also.
