Time for a third fill?


Recommended Posts

Had surgery in March and have since only lost 7 pounds. As of my 2nd fill, I have 2.4 cc's in my band. Yes I have more restriction than after my first fill but I'm confused about something. I can eat a chicken sandwich and as long as I chew it well i can eat the whole thing. Although french fries are completely off limit! :( I know I shouldn't be eating the whole thing but shouldn't I feel good restriction, at say, half way through the sandwich?? I guess I'm just confused about how much I should actually be able to eat per meal. What am I doing wrong?? Time for a third fill? thanks all :)

I have not had surgery yet. But I am doing the pre-op diet.

From what I have learned so far, you still have to change your lifestyle and what you choose to eat. Yes, you should defintely have restriction- But what you chose to eat is just as important as well as exercise.

Like I said I have not had the surgery yet- But from what I am told it is just a tool to assist you, it does not do it for you?????

I bet you are feeling let down by the numbers but any loss is a plus before your second and third fills it seems. I felt no restriction after my first fill as you described but also had certain foods I could not eat..weird??? Anyway after my second fill/unfill experience I now have the "full" feeling almost all the time. There is no way I can eat anymore than 1/4 to 1/2 cup total at one time of anything. there are MANY foods I can't eat though. I am still learning to chew very well and never put anything in my mouth until I mentally prepare for it....slow down and chew it well or else I will have trouble and slime/PB. I think I am at a great "sweet spot" currently so based on how I feel and what you described you need another fill.
