I had my second fill today. The doc pulled out the 3 cc's that he gave me last time and it was all still there. He added 2 cc's and I couldn't swallow water - it was pooling in my throat - scary! So he took one cc out and the water went gurgling down. Will this be my sweet spot? Who knows. The last fill kept me going for months.
I knew it was REALLY REALLY time for a fill this weekend when I was able to eat, with no problem, deep dish pizza, an entire Chicago hot dog (including bun) and more. Not all at once, of course.
I was up 2.8 pounds since my last visit. I'm sure that part of that was normal travel bloat, but it was definitely time for a fill.
I'm on clear liquids for the rest of the day, full liquids tomorrow, mushies on Wednesday, and back to normal on Thursday. I am SO HUNGRY right now and not sure how I will make it through the rest of the day on clears. But I will.
I had my 6 month blood work last week and saw the results today - cholesterol is 158, glucose is 77, everything is perfect except for vitamin D which is STILL a little low, so I'm back on the vitamin D prescription. My B12 was also on the low side of normal, so I'm going to start sublingual B12. That's about it!
