I checked in with my surgeon yesterday and was released to go back to work. The nice nurse write down my vitals so i figured i would just post them. I lost a little weight...but less than three pounds. My surgeon said that was good-that i should average 1.5-2lbs a week. And btw, i DO have fluid in my band!
I had an episode yesterday morning where i think i got sorta stuck on a piece of deli turkey. So i asked during my appt and there is some fluid in there! My first fill is scheduled for May 15. Now to get through the next month without gaining weight will be a challenge. I've decided to go on Slightly modified pre op diet to keep my eating in check.
I also asked my doctor how he does fills and he told me that he will overfill then have me drink water and then he will back out fluid until three water goes through-and then he will take back an additional 0.5cc. He says this its more aggressive but he sees a higher success rate than he does doing multiple tiny fills.
Bring it on, Dr. Man. I'm ready!
