Weigh-in Day & a Big Girl Fill

Today was my 184th weekly weigh-in since I began my weight loss journey in August 2009.

Goal weight: 145 lbs

Today's weight: 142.8 lbs

********************

Today I went for an adjustment (fill) to my band.

This was my first ever adjustment by an actual surgeon.

But the nurse came in to the room hold my belly/port firmly while he stuck the needle in.

One stick with the needle.

That was it.

No lidacain to numb the area.

No band-aid.

What bam, thank you Ma'am.

He added 0.7ccs which brings me up to 7.5 ccs in my 10 cc Lap-Band.

It feels pretty good.

If you remember, I was feeling pretty good at 7.8 ccs before my last adjustment (a 1 cc unfill in September - which I chose to do in preparation for the stress that would be coming from the move from Oregon and starting a new job.)

So now at 7.5 ccs... is pretty near my maximum.

He did not have any post-fill requirements or rules on what I should eat/not eat right after the fill.

But we jokingly agreed that I shouldn't eat any donuts this weekend.

  1. I can't believe they didn't use lidocaine! How was that????
    No donuts? No fun! :-)

  2. All of my fills from my surgeon were without lidocaine! Only when I started going to someone else did I start getting numbed first. :) Good work! I need a fill too!

  3. No lidocaine ever for me. Doesn't hurt a bit. Also: only one person comes in, swabs the area with an alcohol swab and needle goes right i. Nothing to be afraid or make a big deal about...

    Wow.... .7 cc's seems like a lot! I go in .1 or .2 cc intervals at most. Not like it matters, since we all react differently, but I think I've got about 7.5 in my band 10 cc band. Perhaps slightly less...

  4. Yeah! I have never been numbed. My sister does her fills and unfills herself. SHe gets her 10 year old to hold the port still! Lol!

  5. I haven't ever been numbed before my fills. Interesting. : )
    Hope the new fill continues to work great for you.
