2nd Fill

Well what an adventure it was to get my second fill. I was 2/3rds of the way to my Dr.'s appointment which is about 5 hours away when Dr. O'Brien's nurse called to say he was stuck in Denver so they would have to reschedule. Ugh! So I called in a favor from a friend and was able to stay overnight with her. I had to take an extra day if work off and I wasn't prepared to stay an extra day so I had to go buy some new clothes. The trip home was awful, cars in the ditch, icy roads and to top it all off I got a flat tire. I had to stop at a rest area, change the tire in the rain and snow and then once I had the donut on I headed to the next town. $520 later I have 4 new tires and new brake pads. Not exactly what I had planned on.

I now have 3 cc's in my band. Apparently I had 1 cc at surgery which I was unaware of. Then of course I had one put in, in February and then 1 today. So I am hoping I start to feel some good restriction. My next fill is scheduled for May, about 8 weeks out but I can call and move it up if I feel the need to. According to the Dr.'s scale I was only down 4 pounds since my last adjustment about 6 weeks ago. I am hoping for more progress. Otherwise, life is fine. I am trying to get out and walk more as the weather turns to Spring. Just pushing along.

  1. That sucks about the flat tire and having to buy new ones. Good luck on this fill. I had 3 cc's in my band at surgery and just had 1cc added on Tuesday (10cc band). So far, I can't eat much solids but hopefully it relaxes.
