My Friends...You Win Today!

I read all the comments and recommendations this morning from yesterdays post about me being too tight. And.....reluctantly......I called my doc and they are squeezing me in for hopefully just a little unfill.

I do not want a big unfill. I by no means want to be able to eat whatever I want on the cruise. BUT, I dont want to do damage to my band and I don't want something to happen on the cruise like Lacey was mentioning, where I would need a complete unfill and there would be no doc to unfill it!

So, I will let you know how much he takes out. I am hoping about .25cc's. It has been nice having almost NO hunger at all! I did like that.

But Liz is right, even if he takes more out, I lost weight with little restriction before and can continue to do it.

Thanks for the gentle push in the right direction ladies!

Love ya!


  1. That's what friends are for Amy! Hugs!

  2. Awww!! Glad to hear it. That's such a wee bit. And who knows, that may end up being your sweetspot- tight enough restriction without any bad side effects?

    This could actually work out really well for you.

  3. I didn't contribute because as you know, I'm in a similar boat, but not quite as far gone... It's really hard to make these choices isn't it? I do think you're prob doing the right thing, love.

  4. Glad you decided to do that... have fun!

  5. Amy, I just read your posts about being too tight and I'm so glad your going in for a slight unfill. I've noticed that when I get an unfill for being too tight, it takes several days before my pouch adjusts, so I feel instatnt relief, but I still can't eat very much. He took out 1 cc a few days ago and I feel great, but can't eat much. So, just be careful still, bc you might still get stuck easy. Also, you never know if your band is going to tighten on the cruise with the different conditions and excitement and stuff. I've had so many vacations over the summer where my band tightened on me and I was miserable the whole time, so I'm glad you will be able to enjoy your cruise!!!
