Tonya Posted July 14, 2005 Report Share Posted July 14, 2005 Hi Everyone, I was wondering, for those of you that have already been banded for a while, how many fills have you had? And did you have your fills done by a doctor in the U.S. or did you go back to Drs. Ortiz and Martinez? From what I've been reading on different web sites the patients getting their fills in the U.S. are getting up to six fills! But I remember Dr. Martinez telling me that their patients that come back to them need on average 1 to 3 fills. I know everyone is different, but I'm just curious as to what your experiences have been. I had my surgery on June 10th and go back July 30th for my first fill. I definitely need that fill too since I can eat almost as much as I did pre-banding. I appreciated your post, Jenna, where you told how you struggled until you got that first fill. It reassured me that I'm not the only one here with wondering when this band is going to kick in. Thanks, Tonya Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
