I am SOOOOO excited!


Recommended Posts

Because it is a week since my 6th fill and I AM STILL RESTRICTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YEAH ME!!!!!

Can you imagine being HAPPY that it hurts to eat? Well, I am!! and every time I go above my full limit, I have to smile because I freaking finally have restriction!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now I know what all the hoopla is about.

If I was a cheerleader, I would be jumping up and down by now!

That is so fantastic! They gave me a 10cc band and that has been my fear that it will take me forever to get restriction. Can't wait to hear about your increased success!! Yea!!

I know you've been waiting so long for this restriction, and I'm so happy for you. I finally have good restriction too, so let the lbs. come OFF!

Mona,

That is awesome!!! You and I are experiencing the same thing except I have the small band. But I know what you mean about loving the pain!!!! It was shocker for me when I finally understood what they were talking about. I had my 2nd fill last Saturday. When I drink water, my pouch gurgles as the water goes through. I can barely eat 2 tablespoons of food. It hurts like hell if I drink with my meals!!! YIPPEEE....... I am so happy for us both!!! CHEER.. CHEER... HIP HIP HOORAY!!!!

Yes, dinner tonight was 3 bites, I'm moving up!! But no veggies yet!

This is so cool, I can't believe how long it's been. I never thought it would happen. I was so sure I ruined the band or something. It is such a huge relief to know there is nothing wrong with it and it's finally FREAKING WORKING!

Thank you so much for your post - I have been so discouraged and frustrated, too. I got the VG band 5/08 and weigh more now than the day I had surgery. I haven't had any restriction, and I'm at 8cc's. I'm going today at 3:00 to get more and see if I can finally experience what you're talking about. I have been feeling guilty that I've "broken" it, done something wrong, wasted money, wasted time, etc. Your post makes me have hope that I just need to keep trying to get it right. Thanks again - Tina.

Ask the doctor for at least a full cc to get up to 9. I'm at 9.2 and it's great. Good luck and please let me know how it went after you get home!

So sorry for you to go through this but it is very nice to know that I am not alone! I have felt so discouraged and alone in this since March. So, I almost feel vindicated now that there is another out there in my same boat! So, thank YOU too for posting!!

We'll get there!!!
