Everyone...How many cc's in your band


Recommended Posts

I was just curious....I know everyone is different, but I was just wondering if you all would respond and document when you had your fills, how many cc's and weight loss inbetween fills. I'll go first.

First fill August 16th 1cc. 3 pounds lost between my first and second fill

Second fill Sept 3rd 1.2cc for a total of 2.2cc. Between my second and third fill lost 5 pounds

Third fill Sept 29 1cc for a total of 3cc in my 4cc band. Praying for good restriction or that "sweet spot" I dream of!

Thought this would be interesting to see how others are doing. Also...I don't know how to say this well...but sometimes we get down on ourselves (me especially) for not losing weight fast enough...or not losing "enough" weight. I thought this might be a good way to look at our weight loss and remind ourselves that we are on the right path.

I can't weight (hehehehehe) to hear from everyone!!!!

1st Fill - July 1st .75 - 22 lbs lost between surgery and now

2nd Fill - Aug 22nd 1.00 - 6 lbs lost between 1st and 2nd fill

2nd fill to now... lost 2 lbs.

I'm not happy right now with the amount I can eat so I'm thinking about getting another fill.

Decision 224

Surgery 219 3/17/2008 (lost 5 pounds)

First Fill April 29th 1.5cc (lost 12 pounds since surgery)

Second Fill August 20th 1.9cc (lost 11 pounds between fills) Includes 1 month without any weight loss.

First Un-fill Sept. 3rd -.05cc for a total of 1.4cc in band (lost 4 pounds between fill and unfill)

Since Un-fill on 9/3/2008 I've lost 2.8 pounds

Total weight loss 35 pounds in 6 months.

Restriction is good right now and although I lose rather slow I probably won't go back until my weight loss completely stops again.

Decision weight 290

banded 3/24/08 276

1st fill 5/12/08 @ OCC 1.8cc weight 262 14lbs lost between surgery & 1st fill

2nd fill 6/6/08 local/no fluro 2.5cc weight 262 0 pounds lost between 1st & 2nd fill

3rd fill 8/4/08 local/no fluro 2.9cc weight 251 11lbs lost between 2nd & 3rd fill 25lbs since being banded

Current weight 9/30/08 217lbs weight loss since 3rd fill = 34lbs for a total of 59lbs since being banded.

TOTAL weight loss including pre-op 73lbs.

It was not until my 3rd fill that I finally started dropping some weight. There were times I would read the forum and it seemed like everyone in the world was losing faster than me.. I, daily, had to remind myself that I did NOT get fat overnight so there is NO WAY I was gonna get thinner overnight. (sigh) slow and steady... slow and steady.. it's not a race. Eventually I will get to the finish line :)

I have 3 ccs right now. I feel like I can eat too much but I had 3.2 and starved for 6 weeks because I BPd everything solid that I ate. I'm giving it a month or so to see how this works before I make a decision about whether or not to get a little more.

lets see, for me:

Starting/Highest 01/01/08: weight 247 lbs

1st Fill 1.6cc @ OCC 4/18/08: weight 202lbs (-17lbs between surgery and 1st fill)

2nd Fill +.7cc @ OCC 5/16/08: weight 197lbs (-5lbs between 1st and 2nd fill) The next day I had and unfill of -.3cc, for a total of 2.0cc

3rd Fill+.35cc @ Fill Center USA 6/21/08: weight 187lbs (-10lbs between 2nd and 3rd fill) Fill Total of 2.35cc

4th Fill +.25cc @ Fill Center USA 9/05/08: weight 175lbs (-12lbs between 3rd and 4th fill) Fill Total 2.6cc

Right now it's been almost a month since my 4th fill and I am super tight but I have only lost 6lbs so far since my last fill!

Mindy you have done absolutely wonderful... congratulations! I'm hoping my next fill will give me the "sweet spot" that I'm looking for. Sounds like your 3rd fill did it for you..

These are great! To me it has really helped me calm my over hyper sensitive self down! I get so worried that I am not losing weight like I should, or that maybe I was getting fills sooner than I should be...but it looks like we are all different but the same too. I can see our similarities and it is really been helpful....so thank you to all of you who participated in this post!!!

:D :D :D

My start weight was 265.5 and when I got my surgery I weighted 255. I lost a total of 20 pounds between 1st fill and surgery

1st fill I weighted 234.4 on July 19 had 2.00 cc

between fills I lost 33 pounds

2nd fill I weighted 212.5 on Sept. 20 had .7 cc

That brought me down 53 pounds total.

and now I am down 60 pounds and I have only had 2 fills. I currently weight 205.5 :D
