Yesterday, I went for my second fill. Upon getting on that lovely paper coated table I asked the nurse for a numbing shot. If you have read my previous posts you know that the last fill was EXTREMELY uncomfortable....and that is an understatement.
The nurse asked me if I was sure and said the shot would burn a bit. I reminded her that the last time they had trouble finding the port and had to dig the needle into my abdomen thus creating a huge bruise that lasted a week. I told her either numb it or find me a pill for anxiety...her choice. She then numbed my tummy.
The fill was uneventful, I didn't feel it! I will definitely get numbed every time. My surgeon only put in .5CC's. I now have 4.7CC's in a 10CC band.
Honestly, I can not tell the difference. I had no trouble with anything yesterday but was on only liquids. I guess today will be the real test.
But, I had lost an additional 10 lbs. since my last doctor visit 4 weeks ago. Not to shabby! And that was cutting portions but still allowing myself to eat some "non-diet" foods.
Hopefully in 4 more weeks I will be down another 10 lbs. I am loving this band!
