Hi again

Well after a successful band op I am now 6 days out. I have learnt in these days that I have the ability to burp with the best of them much to my 9 year olds delight!!!!

Couldn’t eat much at all for the first few days and the trapped wind was very painful but am now up and about and feeling happy. I have lost 8 pounds since my op, and since I have pcos this is a complete miracle! I have started to notice appetite creeping back but I am keeping to controlled portions of pureed foods as I would like to lose more before my first fill.

Could I ask you who decides how much goes into your band on the first fill? just concerned that I have read that some people seem to have no restriction after the first fill and restriction is what I need to control myself.

On a very positive note, I saw 2 people this week who hadn’t seen me for 2/3 weeks and both commented that I was looking well and had I lost weight? I never said I was 4 days post gastric banding but it made me feel so b**** great and positive.

Thanks everyone
