Kittycat Posted July 30, 2008 Report Share Posted July 30, 2008 Hi everyone, I had my first fill today. I learned alot about my band today too. Apparently my surgeon uses two sizes of bands 9cc and 12cc. I have the 9cc. During surgery they actually put 3cc of fluid into my band. I got 1cc today, so I have a total of 4cc in my 9cc band. My surgeon does not use fluroscopy unless he cannot find the port. Today, he felt around, located it, marked my tummy and when he puts the needle in, he actually extracts the existing fluid to check how much is there before injecting the fill. I guess that's one of way of confirming the needle is in the port. I am on mushy foods for 2-3 days and then ease into solids. I have another appointment in a month for check on this fill and another if needed. So we'll see how things go!!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
