The appointment I thought I cancelled in fact was still on the books. So I am going today to get my second fill since surgery. Yes, finally at almost 6 months post op, I am getting a second fill. I wonder will there still be 3cc still there from my fill in May? Will it have evaporated? Is that why I quit losing weight and *gasp* started gaining back? Will a fill today get me back on the road to weightloss? How am I going to feel afterwards? Have I screwed up my band, stretched my pouch? Am I going to get a lecture for not following up? If so, I'll lecture back about needing to line his pocket with my $250 program fee (that only covers the pre-op stuff I've already done).
I will admit, I'm kind of scared. It's been so long since I've had any real restriction or survived on a cup of food or less at meals. It's been ages since I've gone 4 hours without eating and not be hungry. If I go 4 hours without food, I'm stomach growling hungry.
Maybe I am having second thoughts about being banded . It's going to get real expensive if I have to fork over these unnecessary program fees every time we move and I'm forced to find a new bari doc. Around here those fees ranged from $250-$400. And we all know those aren't covered by insurance and are on top of our co-pays.
Anyhow, here's a little graph on my weight loss adventure since being banded:

It's still a long way down to goal!!
Speaking of appointments, I just scheduled a dentist appt. for Munchkin. She has a tooth coming in on the top right side where her molars are. The problem is she hasn't lost the baby teeth there so it has formed a huge lump on the side of her mouth there, since there is no room for it. She goes in Tuesday at 11:00. Honestly, I'm a little scared for her as it might mean they pull two....and I'm sure it means we're getting really close to the whole braces talk. YIKES!
