Hi All
Im very excited to be having my first band fill tomorrow and forgot to ask if I should have an empty stomach. If so how long before should I last eat?
I was so pleased to receive the call inviting me to have the fill I never thought of any questions…!
I am 3.5 weeks post band and food is going down now as easy as before and was starting to get into bad habits again so could not be happier to hopefully restrict again.
The internal swelling obviously went down very quickly in comparision to the external, as I can still see the swelling for the tube and only hope Mr Pring knows where he put the port as I can only feel tube and not the port!!!
You are all wonderful and very inspiring – could not have done this journey (so far) without your support and guidance.
