1st Fill


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone-

I was banded on August 22, 2008 and got my first fill toady. Can anyone give me any feedback on how it should feel? I think I could feel when the saline was injected (3cc, I was completely empty before) I felt a little squeeze and now nothing. It didn’t stop me from eating lunch or anything... Is this normal?

I guess what I am saying is taht Idont feel any restriction. Is this normal?

Thanks for your help!

First fill can be very disappointing. It took me maybe 4-6 days to fell the slightest bit of restriction, that lasted maybe 2 weeks and then nothing. This is more the norm. I think people think the first fill will make a difference and from what I have read it's the exception to get good or any restriction on the first fill. give it some days though and you might be surprised.
