First of all, I feel like crap (head/chest cold).
Second, we had a freaking snow storm (22 inches) and I am home alone.
Third, the rest of my family is in New England burying my Father in Law.
And now for the band part.. I have no restriction..something is not right. I don't know if the port was dislodged from the tubing. I noticed that the port is lower on my abdomen.
My first fill was 6cc's (by all the feedback I have received that is alot). You would think I would sense some strong or firm restriction. However, I can chug, and I mean chug an entire bottle of water without the least bit of resistance. I notice that when I eat, there is no true feeling full, its all self control to limit my intake.
Working on my theory that the port has dislodged itself, I am often trying to feel/locate it and it is definitely lower. I plan to call the surgeon, but not sure I will get in during this holiday week, and quite frankly I don't feel like I want to go out the roads are still very icy and messy.. My next fill is scheduled for Jan.22nd.
Other than my head feeling like a Mack truck collided with it, I am ok, I have no port discomfort, I was just counting on some restriction (and self discipline) for the holidays.
Adding to my bag of happiness.. my scale has not budged in two weeks (I even went out and bought a new digital scale) thinking accuracy would make a difference.. but no..
Oh well.. I am going to take two cold and sinus pills and go back to bed.. stay warm..
