So I had a fill on July 2nd. I didn't know this but my band had 3cc in it already. After my fill, I now have 5.25cc. I had a day of liquids and then a day of mushies. It was weird to finally feel some tightness, I noticed it when I was eating some applesauce. It wasn't uncomfortable or anything, but it was moving slowly through my band. Fast forward a few days and I'm noticing that I'm not getting hungry as soon after meals and that I'm full.
The fill itself was strange. My weekly allergy shots hurt worse then getting the fill and I wasn't numbed up or anything. The Nurse Practitioner Karen found my port by touch, removed all of the saline that was in my band to figure out how much I already had, she put it back in, and then added more. I was lying down on a table the whole time with a need sticking out of my stomach. I did bleed a little and I did end up with a bruise over my port.
OK so now on to the scale. So I weighed in yesterday at 250.5. That means I'm down 22.5lbs. YEAH ME!!
