My First Fill



Happy Tuesday!

I had my first fill today and it went really well.  It was way worse in my head than it actually was.   So only liquids for me today and then soft foods for three days.  I'm not sure how much fluid I have in my band, but it's probably around 5 c.c.'s.  I'm not really worried about the number though because based on what everyone tells me you really need to go by how you feel and not the number.  I really really don't want to vomit, so I'm going to follow the rules really closely and only get more fills if I think I really need them.  So here is my video.  I'll also post the instructions for eating post-fill because I had a request to see those and maybe they will be helpful to someone else.

  7. Congrats on your first fill! I remember how scared I was when I got my first fill b/c even though I'd read like crazy, I still didn't know or understand what it might feel like. I actually was so concerned, I waited over 6 months to get my first fill. When I did, I thought it would do the work for me, which was a big mistake. I ended up eating too high calorie foods that were easy to eat (the bad stuff is always easy to eat) and I didn't lose anything. I approached it all the wrong way. I finally understand now - and I hope you don't go through what I did! Good luck - can't wait to hear about your progress!!!!

    I am going to the clinic for my 2nd fill today - I may not get it though. I'm going to talk to the Dr. : )

  9. Wow, 5 cc's already? Did they tell you they were putting that much in? I'm 6 months out and I only have like 4.5 cc's! Usually when they do SUCH a big fill so soon people have problems with it. :/

  10. After my first fill I had 5 or 5.5, so don't worry about having issues... I was so freaked out for my first one and then was like, huh, that was all! Enjoy mushies:) PS- let me know if you need clothes. I think my stuff might be too big for you, but if not I am happy to send.
