Follow up with my surgeon today

First let me say that I found out that my surgeon has read this blog since it’s linked on the NSMC website so if you are reading this, Hi Dr. B!

I do like that Dr. B has very reasonable expectation for weight loss and tries to pound that into his patients.  When I told him that I feel like I can eat too much still, I like that he questioned me because my weight loss is exceeding expectations.

He is thrilled with my weight loss.  I’ve lost 10lbs since I last saw him about a month ago and that is fantastic. 

I admitted to him that I wanted a little more of a fill because I’m still fearful that I can eat too much and that I will stop losing.  I had a gain over Christmas and that was scary to me.

I did get a fill.  He first took the fluid out of my band and found that I had about 4ccs in there.  I thought that it was empty when I had my first fill, but I was wrong.  He put in an extra cc in there, probably just to make me feel better (and it does).

I think that know that I’m at 5cc’s, I’m going to stay here for a while unless I stop losing weight.

I ordered a book on the mediterenean diet and a book called Feeding the Hungry Heart: The Experience of Compulsive Eating.  I really want to start working on the head issues of my weight again as the band is helping me with the weight part.

So now I’m on liquids again for two days.  Joy!

  1. Try to go half cc’s on your next fills. I had my problems and then a slip at 7cc’s.
