Got my first fil


Recommended Posts

Hey Peeps

All is well --

I got 1.8 cc(?) if that's what they are called cc... 2cc were a bit tight but the 1.8 looked perfect. I'm so happy Dr. Marco.... Yes I call him by his frist name. He's such a cutie pie...... Was real cool and I didn't feel a thing, So it was a breeze

And NO Angie That long A$$ needle had no effect on me :P

But then again I never looked at it until after it was taken out and back on the tray.....I barely took a breath cause I didn't like the idea of it just hanging there and I did NOT want to make it giggle.. So thank God Doc Marco was fast.....LOL Big chicken $hit I am....

But I'm chillin @ the Lucerna And the service is wonderful everyone is helpful - The place is VERY clean And I would stay here again!

OK Peeps

Peace Out

Hi Lena!

So glad you are happy with Cosmed. See how you are missed when you are off the forum? I have had both Juvederm and Restylane in my lips, but haven't had it put anywhere else. Does the Fraxel hurt? Is two treatments all you will need?

Oh Tracey -

The Lucerna Was Wonderful staff was great! room service was cheap( in my eye cheap) If one is going to see other doctors I would stay there, All the doctors are with in 10 blocks of each other, Well the ones I went to see. I walked back from Cosmed to the Lucerna, Also on the corner of the Lucerna these this taco stand that is busy throughout the day - I walked there and had 2 of the best tacos I ever ate for $3.50 and then walked back

it feels like a sunburn the first night then then you have some tightness - Like a sunburn and there is some swollen but nothing a ice packs can't handle But getting the fraxel it self does not hurt they numb you all up. 2 treatments were commended for me with this last one being more a in tense

Hey Tray

No weight loss at all maybe 4 oz....... But I just went out and bought some bike shorts and a new seat for my bike and plan on getting some bike riding in! maybe that will help... I have NO restriction whatso ever! I'm 183! haven't moved for weeks.... I could eat anything! I've only BP'ed 1 times and it really wasn't a full BP I slimed for about 2 minutes and it went down.. that was early on- the only thing I haven't ate was steak or drank soda(of cause I won't do that) I do eat less NO I still could eat a little bit a lot of times, cause I feel hungry

Hope you're doing better then me

HI LENA

I AM GOING TO EAT OATMEAL THIS MORNING TO SEE IF I GET MORE RESTRICTION THROUGH THE DAY, TONIGHT I AM GOING TO A LAPBAND DINNER WITH A GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN LAP BANDED FOR A WHILE SO I CAN PICK THEIR BRAINS FOR MORE HELP

I HAVE STOPPED LOSING AT THE MOMENT SO HOPEFULLY THIS WILL CHANGE

Hi Lena!

Do you have any more restriction since your fill a few weeks ago? I just got my fill yesterday and I don't feel a difference but since its only been a day, I'm waitin to see if I feel I difference. I'm on full liquids for 3 days but it all goes down fine. I think I'm gonna be one of those people who needs a couple more fills before I get to my sweet spot. I haven't lost any weight since being on solids for the past three weeks.

Well I got my second fill only .4 which brings me to a even 2cc. for some reason I really don't think this .4cc is gonna do anything, but we shall see

I'm only down to 178, I sure thought I'd be losing faster, I think I'm ready to start hitting the gym. My son works @ one so I think I'll start going when he's there.....

Hi Shiney!

Glad to see things are going well for you!!! YAY! :D Where did you finally end-up going for fills? I'm moving at a SNAILS pace... Grrrrrrrrr.... I've been trekking into the city to Dr. Ren. Not the most convenient trip, but I'm happy nevertheless. I have 2.6 cc's in 3 fills. Although the 1st 2 fills I had felt something for the 1st few days immediately afterward, this last fill I felt NOTHING>>> :angry: AND I MEAN NOTHING!!! So it's been frustrating to say the least. But I'm hanging in there... I have another appt scheduled for this coming week, so hopefully I'll be closer to the "sweet spot" and feel that curbed appetite once again.

Anyway, just wanted to say hi -

Kim

Hi - glad you stopped by... I have to say I’ve been very frustrated the last 2 months With NO restriction, Not feeling BAND AT ALL! But with my last fill on Sept14(?around) I asked If I still had NO restriction could I come back sooner then waiting a month cause I was getting concerned that My appetite was rather large & I was getting worried I’d stretch my band, with that Dory Ferraro from Long Island Bariatric

Center said to come back with in 3 wks & she’d give me some more fill @ NO charge.

So after a week I knew I was going back @ that point I was 2.4.

My first fill in Mexico was 1.6

second Fill with Dory I got .4 taking me to 2

Thrid fill Dory only gave me .2

I wanted more then But she said better to go conservative & I felt that way too. Now I was @ 2.4

I went back for the free fill & she but in .3 bringing me to 2.7

And I can say I feel SOMETHING! I’m not as hungry. I’m not eating as much and it’s only been since Monday But I know I’m gonna drop some pounds..

I've only lost 20.5 pounds. Wish it was more, But I do NO exercise and Am NOT the best dieter. Tho I’ve been the best I’ve ever been the last 4 days since the fill And since I’m band.

So I’ve been going to LI Bariatric Center right off the S.S. parkway in Levittown

It’s convenient, it’s $175 a pop. I’m in & out Never a wait... I figure after the hoildays I'll head back to Mexico Stop in to see Dr. O And also stop at Cosmed
