October Update

It was great having only 5 mils in my band. I hardly knew it was there. In fact it felt like it wasn't. And in seven weeks I gained 13 pounds. So off I went for a fill. This time, he put 1 mil back in. I wasn't sure if that was too much; I was going to ask for 0.25 but he suggested a whole 1 mil.

I'm still on fluids, but can tell that my restriction is back with a vengeance. I wonder how long it will take me to lose these 13 pounds. Longer than it took me to gain them, no doubt.

I feel like I've had a WLS holiday over the last six weeks. With no restriction and eating whatever I wanted, I stopped reading WLS blogs or the WLS forum. I need to get back on track.

hi, have just found your blog via WLS and read it end to end! It is very fluent and easy to read. I had a band fitted here in France just over 2 weeks ago so am avid for info!

I havent had your early problems so far - in fact lost 16 lbs in first two weeks, partly because I had to go back into hospital on a drip and cortizone because nothing was going down.

One comment is that here in France my surgeon would have refused to fit the band if I was a snacker/grazer. My problem has rather always been eating too much at meals. The French eating guidelines stress you have to eat normal meals sitting down at a table, up to 4-5 a day. And only have sweet stuff as dessert after a meal.

Also my surgeon said lots of people cant drink cold water first thing, maybe only a yoghurt around 2ish and then a proper meal of anything in the evening!

Keep on blogging - I would like to know what happened about colonscopy, plastic surgery etc.
