Hi There!

I was banded on Nov 7th 08 and had my first fill on Jan 5th 09. My fill was 1.8cc and I can eat anything I want. I get scared because I'm thinking that my band might have slipped and that's why I can eat anything I want. Could somethng be wrong with my band?

I go back to OCC to get my 2nd Fill on 03/07/09 and I'm hoping they will give me a tighter fill because I haven't been losing weight.

My weight when I was banded was 193 lbs and I am at 174 lbs. I've been at this weight for the last 4 weeks and it doesn't come down.

Not having restriction after the first fill is normal, If your band had slipped, you would not be able to eat anything.

It takes most people 2 or 3 fills to hit their sweet spot, sometimes more.

Not sure how tall you are but according to your weight it looks like you have a lower BMI, The less you have to lose, It seems the tougher it is!

Hang in there, you are normal, and you should see a difference with your next fill.
