First adjustment

March 24, 2008 at 8:28 pm 1 comment

I had my first band adjustment today.  My band holds, I believe, 14 cc.  It is the newest AP band.  Dr. M. put 3.2 cc in today.  He does his fills under fluoro, and fills until he sees decent restriction.  I couldn’t believe how quick it was.  I do have a little seroma under my port incision and it leaked all over me during the fill.  Gross!  I’m on liquids today, and supposed to have purees tomorrow then regular food on Wednesday.  We’ll see.  I have to take it slow with water.  I had chicken broth for dinner and had maybe 1/3 cup and I felt full.  Very weird sensation.  Hopefully the weight loss starts again.  I can’t imagine I’ll be able to eat much for a while.

    From what I have learned by writing about bariatric surgery and meeting patients, I think you have made a courageous move, one that should pay off for you if you are truly committed. Do you have a good support system? Sounds like your mom is in your corner. Do you hang out with folks you can find on sites like ?

    I imagine you know about the excess skin you’re likely to have after you–hooray–reach your goal. I write for a plastic surgeon who specializes in bariatric plastic surgery in Sacramento . He has developed a site he’s hoping people like you can use as a resource (whether or not you look into plastic surgery, and whether or not you ever contact him).

    Best of luck to you. Keep up the great work!
