Not losing!!


Recommended Posts

How do you know when you have a good fill? HOw long does it take to get it? I know everyone is different. I have 1.5 cc in my band and really can't tell a difference, any help will be grateful!

Hi Jen,

I too have the same dilema. I have 1.8cc and I feel no different than before I got the fill. Although I have lost a few pounds since the fill, but I have had to work very hard at it because I can eat as much now as I could before the surgery, if I let myself, but I refuse to do that after all of this. Good luck to you in your weight loss, Im pullin for you.

I had my first fill on May 5th 1.6 cc and I am not feeling any restriction. I am scheduled for another fill this Sat. I am not sure how much they are going to put in this time I would call or email them and tell them, they were very helpful and told me to come back in.

Good Luck

I'm the odd one out - I had 1.5 and couldn't even keep water down :(

Just got back and now have .8 - doesn't sound like much at ALL! So far I'm feeling "full" after eating small amounts but no trouble getting anything down. I'm going to sit on this for a month or so and see if I need more - surely I will since this seems like such a small amount. I've lost 22 pounds in 2.5 months. Not a lot but in reality, just got my first "real" fill so I figure that's 22 pounds I wouldn't have lost (and probably would have gained.....).

Every person is different on how much it takes to feel restriction. I consider my fill to be good, if it prevents me from eatting too much or too fast. Such as if I try to shove a hot dog down quick, it will either come back up or cause pain.

Pammie,

Congradulations! How wonderfuld to be where you are. I am at 1.8, only have restriction on certain foods, and the restriction is not what I expected. Unless I'm very careful I've had to much before I know it. This isn't the sweet spot, right? Any where along the waybefore you got just the right fill did you have this experience?
