Too Tight Again

Here I am again, dealing with the same old stuff after an adjustment.

I got 0.9 CC's yesterday.
I had a EAS protein shake (170 cals) and a Starbucks Chocolate Vianno Whey Shake (250 cals).
Got off work, went home and had 2 greek yogurts.
Was wondering if I had restriction.

By dinner, I was ready to cheat.
It hadn't been 24 hours since my fill, but it HAD been 24 hours since solid food.
I had a bowl of wonton soup...mostly liquid, just 2 wontons in it.
I did okay, no PBing yesterday.

So this morning I woke up and took a big sip of chocolate milk.

Hello, PB.
Hello, 2 hours of Slime.

So by lunch time I start eating my yogurt for lunch, sick.
Go for soup with a coworker, sick.
Get frozen yogurt with coworker, sick.

I can't understand my band sometimes.

Currently about to post this ad and go PB again, as I just had another bite of yogurt.


  1. .9 is actually a pretty big fill. I would think it would take a while to adjust to it. I'd be completely closed off if I got that much fill. I currently have about 6.4. My last .3 was way too tight. I've been toying with the idea of .1 but don't want to risk being tight again. I know everyone is different, but I would think you'd definitely notice .9. Good luck! Hope it gets easier soon.

  2. so sorry to hear about's no fun not being able to hold anything down!

  3. I don't know all that much about a lap band, especially when you talk about a 'fill'. I'll have to do some research so I have a better understanding. Best wishes that you feel better soon. You've done well with your weight loss, kudos! Hope you have a great weekend.

  4. Had you lost all restriction before getting the fill? I'm getting one next week and my doc only wants to do a .5 and I want a full cc...we'll see...

  5. Yikes. Hang in there; give yourself only liquids and let your esophagus rest. Hope you feel better soon.

  6. Oh man! That happened to me after my very first fill and it was pretty much the worst thing ever! I had them unfill it and waited like 8 weeks to refill it. Granted, my weight loss has been much slower but we have gone really slow with my fills because it was happening every time I had a fill. So now I have like 3.5 cc in my band or something and this last fill was .5 cc and it was still kind of rough.

    I hope you got it all straightened out!!
