|Water - ready to drink!|
|This is my "fill room"!|
First, let me start off by saying that I apparently had 2 ccs in my band when I was originally banded (I had thought it was completely empty) - the nurse confirmed this when I asked again if I only had 1 cc put in during my last fill. She said "they took 2 out and put 1 in". Glad to know I am so on top of the fluids going into my body.
Anyway, the PA came in and found my port quite easily enough and removed the 1 cc I had in there and put in 3 ccs. Then I drank the water and she asked if I could "feel the water trying to bubble back up in my esophagus"...??? I sort of could (I guess). So she removed some saline. Then I drank again. I told her this time the water went down easier. She told me she was going to take a bit more out since food is harder to get down than water. And that's how I ended up with a whopping 1.4 ccs TOTAL in my band. She did say I could come back in 3 weeks instead of 4 if I didn't feel good restriction. So we shall see. Today is back to liquids so the real test will come later this week.
Here's hoping to some good restriction!
