5.25 cc - Another Fill

Went in for another fill today... 10/05/10. I wasn't sure I needed a fill because I am so close to my sweet spot but I wanted to "piggy back" off my last fill appt two weeks ago. (you get a free fill within 2 weeks of your "paid" fill)

Call me cheap.. but I wanted to save $75.00. : )

Went in... and they added .5cc to my 5cc filled band. (.5cc is the most they will add per appt at this stage) I drank some water, it went down pretty good. The Dr took out the fill needle and I was about to leave the room... when I could suddenly tell that the liquid was not moving. Saliva started filling my mouth and I realized that .5cc was going to be to much. I felt bad but I asked the Dr to take out .25cc. Back on the table I went and she got out another needle. I felt guilty making her do it again but I am really not looking for an emergency unfill later on tonight...

It feels pretty good now. I am hoping this fill will take me through the holidays. I guess we will have to see.

Liquids for the next 24 hours. And then I'll see how I am doing. I have a good feeling. :)

I'm at the exact same spot you are Heather---I may need .25cc's taken out --but I'm going with it for now!

Good Luck!

Better to be guilty then hurt yourself with an overfill. Good for you.
