So after my last visit with the PA where we decided I didn't need a fill and scheduled an appointment for June 16th, I decided that I actually was probably still too tight...so I called and they squeezed me in yesterday for an unfill. I was going to ask her to take out .25cc which would take me just .25cc above where I was before I got my last fill. BUT as I know all too well, things don't always go as planned.
She took a picture at my current level as I swallowed barium and marveled at how slow it went through, then decided to take .5cc out instead of .25cc, which has brought me back to my previous level prior to my fill. As she did this she assured me that she knew of people who'd had the exact same thing happen and they didn't go back to the prior restriction level, but kept some of the restriction they'd had. I've also heard of this happening to people...so I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that I still keep some restriction and maybe in 8 weeks I'll need a little tweak. I just want to get losing again. On a positive note - I didn't experience any heartburn when I layed down to go to sleep last night...first time in weeks!
