Fill 'er up
Well I got my third fill on 4/16. I had gotten up to 284 lbs when I weighed myself the morning of the fill. Today I weighed myself and I'm down to 268! I'm thinking the fill is doing its job. I'm up to 4.5 cc. The nurse looked at my restriction from the scans of my last fill and said you could drive a truck through it. Usually they don't do more than 1 cc at a time, but she recommended I get 1.5. I was really tight at first, and wasn't sure if they had gone a little too aggressive. It seems to have loosened up a bit now, but I am still getting used to this more intense restriction. Before this I didn't feel like the band had really done anything for me, but now I feel like it is doing the job it was intended to do. Here is hoping I finally have the tool I need!
