was particularly sad and brave. I also felt for Amy in her post. Watching her vlog just brought tears to my eyes!! I am so glad that she will be going to Chicago! I just wish I were going too!!
Well, today Walt and I drove up to Reno for my 5th Fill. I was told last time that I had 5.6 cc's in my 10 cc Band, and it didn't give me any real Restriction. I was expecting her to only give me .5 this time as they are really conservative in Fills. Since I only lost 1 lb in the last 4 weeks, she decided to give me another .6 cc's. But when she withdrew the fluid from the Band, she said that she had a really good flow and she brought out 5.5 cc's and didn't extricate all of it. So she is now estimating that I actually have about 6.5 cc's!!
In the past, I was always able to eat right after the Fill without any problems, other than to be careful in what I ate, and to eat slowly. This trip, we met our Brother In Law for lunch before we drove home. He wanted to meet at BJ'S Brewery so I ordered a bowl of Spaghetti with Marinara Sauce. I have eaten Spaghetti before with no problems.
NOT THIS TIME! I was careful, and ate slowly, but obviously not slow enough. I only ate about 5 bites when I realized that I was going to be stuck. So I excused myself, and spent the next half hour in the ladies room Slimming! Oh well, it could have been worse!! So for dinner tonight, I ate a can of tuna which is about 1/2 cup. So....I guess you can say that I finally got what I asked for!!! Restriction!!! YEA! Let's see how long it lasts! Till next time....
Aloha My Friends :)
