2thebeach Posted September 15, 2008 Report Share Posted September 15, 2008 Help? I was banded by Dr.Ortiz 8/17/07 with a 10 cc band. I have lost 60 lbs and have 60 more to lose. I had not lost any weight at all for about 9 weeks even though I have been doing everything right. - I thought 9 weeks was a long time for a plateau so yesterday I went in yesterday to see if I needed a final fill. ( I had my first fill at OCC and have 8.3 cc total in now) My fill doctor uses flouro and yesterday she told me I had stretched my pouch "just slightly". She recommended liquids only for 5 days- little drinks at a time- and after 5 days to go back to eating what I was before but never more than 1/4 cup of fod at a time. She is a wonderful doctor but I trust Dr.Ortiz more. What does he suggest I do? Also, should I go back to my fill doctor after a month or two to see if I was able to shrink it?
