Follow up post :)

Follow Up from earlier today:
Whoo hoo!! I got my first fill!! I'm so excited :) 
Okay, so I went in STARVING... like O-M-G I just so hungry, I was ready to literally eat my arm off. Of course today of all days, I woke up hungry and had crazy hunger pains all day up until my appointment. If this wasnt an instant indicator I needed that fill, I dont know what would be LOL

The nurse calls me in and they have me lay on the table, and the nurse starts poking around looking for my port. I'm such a nerd, cause I didnt even know where it was. I've been too nervous to even feel around on my own stomach to find my port, I don't know why but I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about touching it and feeling it inside me LOL! (I'm weird... I know) I'm just glad she located it for me so I  know where it is now. She asked me to kinda sit up like I was doing a sit up, and prick! Owwww!!!! The needle hurt way more than I thought it would!  I'm not squeamish and I'm very tolerable with needles. I've always been the person who likes to watch getting my blood taken and watching the needles go in, but yet I was weirded out by feeling around to find my own port LOL Anyways, once she pricked me, that needle her like a mutha! Wowzer! Then they had me get up (with the needle still sticking out of my stomach) to do my x-ray. I drank the barium and watched it go down. She showed me my band and said everything was going down just as it should and at the pace it should and everything looked great! there were no signs of my band slipping or my pouch being stretched.... Hallelujah!! I've had fears of stretching it since my band hasn't been restricted. So she took out the needle and I was off on my merry little way..... Get this- The best part about my appointment... I went in completely starving and came out not even hungry at all!!! How awesome is that!! First fill done, and it was a success! :)


  1. Wow - that sounds great - I am going for my first fill on the 25th and can't wait because I am getting very hungry at times and willpower is getting tougher and tougher. Can't wait to hear how you do.
