So I truly feel like I am not getting it. I had 2.8cc in my band and I went in for a fill yesterday because I was eating more than 1 cup at a time--more like 2 cups and it was only keeping me full a couple of hours.
So I go in and Dr. D gives me 2cc to bring me up to 4.8cc now that is still less than 5.65cc I had before my complete unfill so I think its aggressive but who am I to say anything. He has me drink water and it goes down no problem.
As the night progresses I feel tight but I am not eating solid foods so it does not stand out. Then night time comes and I have terrible acid reflux---the gurgling kind---the kind that wakes you out of slumber because you think you are drowning...the kind when you are too full---uggghhh
So I am going to call this morning and get a slight unfill----maybe I swell a bunch after a fill? Its really frustrating because I have to take time off work to go in for all these fills---I kind of think its crazy how many fills I have had. I remember originally my doc said that most patients get 7 fills a year---well I have gone past that.
Any words of wisdom?
Boy did we get storms last night...my mom had 2 trees blow down---big ones 30 ft high. My father in law had 3 trees blow down...luckily ours are all still standing just have quite a bit of water still in the yard..oh and the doggie door in the laundry room ---should have shut that because the room flooded in a matter of 30 min--the rain was crazy! and hail.
Oh and weigh in this week...this is for 2 weeks because I was on vacation last week
starting weight 235.5
weight today 229.0
Loss of 6.5lbs---yay!!!! that is the biggest loss I have seen and I did it on vacation and with just a slight fill..exercise was the key I really believe that!!!
