She pulled out my fill and I was down to 1.6 from an original fill of 2.0 - which was done 6 days ago

She then filled me to 2.6 cc's

Swallowed pink lemondade and the whole thing BLAZED right through the band

Then she went 3.6 cc's

I again swallowed pink lemonade

At that point it looked like restriction. The fill nurse then turned to me after watching this for a few minutes and said that I am the first person to ever go that high she has ever had to fill.

I asked her if she should unfill a bit

she turned to the fluoro and said "no, you look fine"

I have no problems and have been able to drink fluids with no problem

pretty amazing

I asked her if it is because I am tall and she said a resounding NO...

but I am still the first person to have it this high for her. She is a lap-bander herself and has lost 120 lbs. I "think" she knows what she is talking about.

See all you gals on Saturday to debate this!

Cara, my first fill was 2.0cc and I had a little restriction for maybe a week? So I went ahead and got my 2nd fill and had a total of 3.2cc which was a tad to tight but loosend up eventually ... after 3 month ... to the point I had almost no restricton again. When I went for my 3rd fill I only had 2.4cc of the 3.2cc left and got a refill to 3.0cc.

When I asked where the 0.8cc went, the NP said that usually she can't get all of it back out, since some of the fill is in the tube and some of it simply dissapears ...

If 3.0cc fill is what is right for you .. then so be it ... we are all different!

The 4cc band actually holds MORE than 4cc, so don't worry for now that you run out of space LOL

YAYYYYY to restriction :clapping:

Thanks for all the info. When I did ask her where the other .04 cc went, she said the same thing that it disperses itself in the tubing etc.

I am tight, especially this morning...but am able to get down water, protein shake and miso soup without much problems...I just cannot gulp if you know what i mean.

The game is on...as my husband so eloquently stated! :D

Wow, that's a lot!

Glad to hear you have the restriction also.

When I asked the fill doctor where does the missing saline go?

He said there are crevices and such that it stays in sometimes.

I guess the tubing as well, like you said.

I'm going in for my 2nd fill in 2 weeks. Looking forward to it.

But it's RIGHT before Thanksgiving. :((

I guess that's a good thing.
