First fill.....that did NOT happen!

Today was my one month check up with the doc, and the appointment for my first fill.  My surgery was on 3/29 and as of today I have lost 30 pounds!! My scale is a little nicer then his scale, so I have to change my ticker. LOL  He also decided that since I can't eat more than 3 ounces at a shot that I would not be filled today!!!  I also learned I have the 14cc APL Band.  My card for Allergan says 10cc.  Oh well.

He made me make an appointment for 3 weeks just in case that full feeling goes away!

I am a work in progress...perhaps never completed or perfected; but forever working to change for the better...

That's great!  I'm so glad to hear you have a doctor that really listens and is in tune with what you're body is going through during these early stages.  Congrats on the 30 lbs...that's awesome!

I have to admit, I was a little afraid that he would force me.  Not that he's a sadist or anything but I figured that he'd think that I didn't know what I wanted or needed.  When I went into the exam room I like blurted it out, "I don't need a fill!!" LOL He was like, um, can you still lay down so I can see your incisions?

Congrats to you !! I was so excited when I skipped my first fill also :o) I still get excited.

the less you have to mess with the fills the better off you are with the band :o)

Keep up the great work. Keep your head in the game and you will do wonders :o)
