First Fill


Recommended Posts

I was told to eat light the day of fill but I didn't have it at OCC.

sabrina, where did you have your fill done? with Dr. Arseneau or did you go to NW fill center or somewhere else? Did they use flouroscopy? I'm trying to sort out who to go for after care...

thanks, Ayeesha :)

I was told no eating the day of fill....the pouch needs to be empty for the fill. Then at the fill Dr. So reccomended 2-3 days of full liquids but said it was up to me what I could tolerate.

Cindylou,

Did you have your fill at OCC?

Send a message to Dolittle and ask him to send you a great article on how to have a good fill experience. I found that article really helpful and informative.

What I did was only have liquids the day of the fill and at least for eight hours before. I was told I wouldn't need to be on liquids after the fill, but to be on the safe side, I decided to have just liquids for the rest of the day and the next day. I progressed to soft foods on the third day and solids the fourth day onward. I didn't go to OCC either, so this would be different than their instructions.

Thanks vangirl....I did find that article, but it said nothing about before the fill.

I've been told it's best if you do not eat anything before the fill. I usually try to get mine as early in the AM as possible.
