Had my first fill today. Easy Peasy!!
First they located the opening of the port with an ultrasound. Then gave me a shot of lidocaine, then had me do a little crunch with my hands behind my head, and then injected the solution. Pretty easy and painless. Then I drank a cup of water to make sure it goes through my band.
I got 2cc today. The “sweet spot” will be between 5.9 and 7.1 cc. I come back in 2 weeks for another fill.
The next 24 hours is “full liquids” basically protein shakes and soups. The next 24 hours is mushy food. I’m going to try to just stick with protein shakes for the full 48 hours.
