Band too tight... going for ANOTHER slight unfill Thursday
Tuesday, September 01, 2009
Blecch. I guess I am one of those folks who are super sensitive to band fills. I had .5 ccs put in two weeks ago; the doctor did not want to give me a fill because I was doing really well, but I explained I was starting to experience some hunger issues. So he topped me off with a half cc. Well, that was not good. By the time I started to get off liquids 2 days later, I could not eat anything except mushies and even a small bit of that. Lost 4 lbs. in like 5 days. Not good at all! So I went back and got .2 taken out.
Here we are, 5 days later since that unfill and I am still unable to eat more than a bite or two of "regular" food such as chicken or fish - and forget veggies! I am falling into the same trap that others who are too tight fit into --- eating soft, easily swallowed foods like hummus and tuna salad and yogurts and sugar free puddings as well as the chips and crackers that go down easily. Why is that, the fattening stuff is so able to get passed through the band, but a salad or some healthy meat/fish is tough to pass?
I ate a little bit of a grilled cheese sandwich (1/4 of one, actually) and Ii almost immediately PB'd. So I am now on liquids for today and tomorrow while this band settles down. I love my band, but it sure is challenging trying to find the best fill results. I go on Thursday to get some more taken out.
It is equally bad to be "too tight" and "too loose!" I guess. Back to the doctors I go.
The scale has not moved since the unfill....
