It’s been 5 days since the took all of the saline out of my band b/c I got steak stuck in it. Well, they put 5 cc’s back in last monday but you wouldn’t know it b/c I have NO restriction. I’ve gained 7 lbs! Yesterday I had fish n chips for lunch, a butterfinger, an entire pint of ben n jerry’s chubby hubby, cookies, cheese…you name it – I ate it. So I tried to make an appointment today to get some more saline put in but they wouldn’t do it – said no more fill until this coming monday. At which time they will put in 2 cc’s – which will bring me up to 7…then I have to wait ANOTHER WEEK to get the additional 2 which would put me back to where I was (9cc’s in my 10cc band). I’m so frustrated. By that time I will probably gain back 20 lbs. I want to learn how to do fills myself so I don’t have to deal with this. Has anyone actually done a fill themself??? Lap-Band land is not a good place to be this week…

How many fills did it take you experienced¬† banders until you were at that point of perfection? And how much saline did it take?
