Cazza, don’t beat yourself up hun, as I said earlier, bandsters that get restriction from their first fill are few and far between. We have had surgery and it is a tool to assist us, with no restriction, your tool is not yet working for you… I’m sure they aren’t going to be really upset with you when you go to get your 2nd fill… You will also find that once you do get some restriction, as you lose weight, your restriction will ease as the band becomes looser as you loose internal fat from around your stomach where the band is placed. Don’t worry, St Richard’s are really good, when you need to go for further fills, you can normally get an appointment within a week or so.

One thing to warn you about is don’t be tempted to get overfilled. I had too tight restriction once and it was horrible… I could barely even manage sips of water for a whole weekend before going back for an emergency de-fill.

Hang on in there, I know how frustrating it is when you hear of the bypassers who have started losing lots of weight straight away, and you are still waiting for restriction weeks or even months later… it will happen and when it does, you will be jumping for joy.

Take care
