Had a slight unfill and I feel better

Friday, August 28, 2009

Since I really had some trouble eating anything from my fill last week, I finally decided to go in for a slight unfill. Dr. F had told me he really did not think I needed a fill, but when I told him I was feeling some hunger between meals -- he decided to "top me off" with a .5cc fill. Well, I could get liquids down (just about, they really gurgled), and hardly any soft foods (mushies like tuna salad or yogurt) I finally opted to go all the way back into NYU to be seen. Its such a pain to have to take a taxi, a train, another taxi, then turn around and do it all the other way to get home. But my surgeon is SO worth it!

The doctors office was glad I came in because I lost 4 lbs. in 6 days (not a good thing!) so I was truly too tight. The took out .2 and what a difference! I still feel restriction but at least I can eat a small serving and feel like I am not going to PB.

I just wanted to say today how much I love my band. I wish I had gotten the lap band surgery long before I did....

    I'm so glad it's working out so good for you.
    I just hope my insurance company will go for it and I can have it too.
    I have a lot of questions and concerns and that's one reason I joined here but I am going to a seminar to learn more too and that will help me make my decision (of course if they pay for it). I can't afford it by myself.
