So I know I haven't updated in a while, and that has mainly been because I thought that I was having some major problems with my band. I went for another fill in March, and the dr put me up to 4.5 in the 4 cc band, still no restriction, not good. I went back in April, 4.9, still nothing, however this time we talked about him checking things out and seeing what the problem was. He though that I could have scar tissue built up, and that my options were, live with it the way it is, have surgery to place it in another location or have gastric bypass, which is not what I wanted. So, last week April 28th I went for an Xray, and long story short, I have a 10 cc band not a 4! Unbelievable! I had specifically asked him 2 months ago if there was a chance I had the larger band, and he said absolutely not! Hun I guess he was wrong. So I was mad for a little bit, but it really doesn't help me at this point to be mad. So while I was in my x-ray my dr put me up to 7ccs in the 10 cc band. So now I can hear water go through, and I defiantly have some restriction. Which is great, but it is a learning curve. I have lost 65lbs at this point, and have done it basically on my own, so I am very proud of that. I have also begun to seek some help for some of the food issues that I have, and I am really beginning to get my life in order. I am restructuring a bit, which for me is very important. I need to start doing things for me not others. I had gained about 5-8lbs back through the whole figuring out what is going on thing, but in the past I would have gained it all back and then some so I feel like I am doing fantastic! I also have been working on trying to live my life, I donated my hair to locks of love and got a hair cut, instead of waiting until I had gotten to my goal! So things are well.
So from here I am working on living with my restriction, and learning what foods I can eat and what ones I cannot eat, and I have to also schedule my next catscan for my liver. I will update everyone when I get to that.
