No pain, apart from him trying to find the port. But it was all over in seconds (hubby watched). Good thing I still have quite the fat roll (and boobs) so i couldnt see it anyway!
Of course there were lots of probing questions. Mostly to get a picture of where I was and any risky behaviours (such as my love affair with open sweet items). It was helpful having hubby there as Dr pointed out he has a part of the control in making sure these things aren’t in the house to tempt me etc (he doesnt know but hubby has in the past been the supplier of said items!). Interestingly he compared much of this to alcoholism.
I only had 0.75ml fill as he wasn’t sure if 1.00ml might be too much, so we settled in between. This means I am at 4.75ml (they put 4 mls in when the band was installed). But I have another fill in two weeks so no biggie. I will probably get another 0.5 or 0.75 which will take me to either 5.25 or 5.5 mls
Also saw the dietician afterwards and we decided that I should focus on my portion size and water consumption over the next few weeks as my portions have gotten bigger than I thought they should be...she was happy that I had lost another kilo during our time away – pretty good considering we were eating out for most meals.
So I was on soft foods following the fill, had eggs for dinner and breakfast this morning was yoghurt and cereal. Lunch was mince and mashed potato. All seems fine and so far I have had no stuck episodes so the dietician was happy with that.
While I have definitely felt that there was a fill I still haven’t got the completely full feeling I was having at one point, but much more than last week, so I will go with that.
