Too Tight?

I had my fourth fill yesterday and I think it was too much. I am still on liquids. Last night I had soup and had no problems. Right now I am struggling drinking water. I'm getting the left shoulder pain. So frustrated!! I'm getting a cold and I am also stressed out. That might be part of the issue. Crap. I'm also flying tomorrow. Great. A mini vacation where I can't eat or drink. Any Pittsburgh bandsters out there want to be on call to recommend an emergency unfill doctor.


  1. I was worried after my fourth fill too...but I think as we get more and more in these bands, the fills are more and more "effective". I have had 5 fills now, and have 7.5cc in my band (and I so did not want the 5th but Gaspar is irresistable). After the last 2, it took a lot more than a few days to adjust.

    Thanks so much for your comment on my blog. It's a terrible, terrible time, and I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. I will definitely take you up on the offer to go out and drink a lot...I have a feeling there is a lot of alcohol in my future. Can you email me your number? I don't think I have it.

  2. i would say try to relax and give it a little while, since your flying and everything else it might just need time to settle.

  3. If you are leaving town, you probably should get an un-fill. Being unable to get liquids down is a problem! Few things are worse than being too full!
