I am at 4 weeks post op now and still have another 2 weeks to my fill.
From what I understod about the last two weeks before your fill when your stomach is no longer ‘swollen’ you will need to excercise self control not to eat too much,before you haver the help of the band fill and then restriction.

With myself I had restriction for 5 days after the op and the rest of the 3.5 weeks have been struggling not to eat too much food! It is so strange as I’ve had a life changing op and I feel it’s a huge anti climax as for 6 weeks things are exactly as they were before the op. If I didn’t have the scars on my stomach I’d think I imagined having a band fitted!

It was emphaised strongly to me by the dietician I must eat tiny portions otherwise I can stretch my stomach and then no matter how full your band is it won’t be effective. While I’ve had no portion restriction with the help of the band yet I’m scared I’ve already stretched my stomach as although I have halved my portions through ‘dieting’ it’s way more than 3 tablespoons.

I’ve lost 8lbs in the 4 weeks since the op by ‘dieting’ I just hope when I have a fill in two weeks it will help me or I may as well as saved thouasnads of pounds and dieted.

Sorry for offloading my negativity and frustration
