Hello all happy Saturday!! I had my first fill today!! 3cc plus the one that was in from surgery so I have 4cc's...not to bad, very interesting sensation for sure but not painful. I told the Dr. I felt a lot sensation by my belly button area...my port is about 6 inches below my right breast no were near my belly button... He said there were a lot of nerves in the area that is why. So he found my port, pulled out some air and then in with the saline!! Very quick and easy!! I go back in 2 weeks for 3cc more.
On a differant note I think I may have found the culprit as to why I lost nothing last week and in fact gained... I went from 297.1 last Sat. To 299.1 on Mon. With no change in my daily food just increase in work outs...I was bummed that Sat was my fill and literally until yesterday all week long the scale read 299.1!!! Uggg!!! So I looked at my carb count.. Good.... Looked at calories and food choices...good...looked atthe crystal light box to check out the sodium!!!! BINGO!!!! There is 35 mg of sodium in 8 oz of crystal light lemonade... I have been living on crystal light lemonade for drinking purposes... Not water, not tea, all day tons and tons of crystal light over 84 oz a day!!! Holy Crap!!! With that much sodium why did I not pay attention to that??? I might as well been drinking diet coke with all that sodium (no worries I have had not soda in over 8 weeks)!!! Sowed when I realized this I started right away with water to flush it all out.. Gallons of water the past 2 days!!! So today I fo for 6 week post-op check up and first fill and scale read.....296.1!!!!! Woo hoo!!! I did not make my desired 30 pounds by 6 weeks post but I will take 29!!!
Lesson learned... Crystal Light Lemonade is NO substitute for WATER!!! Hope the rest of your weekend is fabulous!!!
