I got a fill this morning...a small one. Just .5ccs bringing me to 6.5ccs in my band. I waffled on if it was the right choice or not. Mostly because I'm right in the middle of Green and Yellow zones.
So...I'm not hungry (green), but I can eat large portions if I want, I snack between meals, and I'm fighting hard for a lost pound.(yellow)
It's great that the band is adjustable...and I'm hoping this small fill will bump me into the perfect green zone space.
And on the other hand I'm hoping this wasn't an overfill because maybe I snack because of habit or head hunger or maybe I have too large a portion because of self control. And that's not going to get fixed by a fill...that's all in my head...
My normal doc is deployed. (Boo! Hiss!). He left in January and thankfully it's only a 6 monther so he'll be back in June. He also just happens to be the only doctor able to do lapband surgery. The doc I saw today apparently can do a fill, but not surgery. No clue how all that works, but whatever.
So my experience with her was weird. She kept hitting something hard on the port while she was trying to find the opening with the needle...and I could feel it hitting...it made my teeth rattle. Then when she sucked out the fluid to make sure there was no leaking it was the first time I'd been able to feel that happen. Very strange sensation...and even worse when she put it all back in it took my breath away.
I see her again at the end of March then I am hoping my doc is back to work before my next appt needs to take place.
Oh! And I was back in ONEDERLAND this morning thanks to 9 hours of sleep. 198.6. Woohoo!
