restriction question

Hey I had a fill a couple weeks ago and I had more restriction then than I do now? Is this normal? My weight is weird because it fluctuates and I can stay at the same weight for a bunch of days then all of a sudden drop 3 pounds. Hope everyone is having a good week.

  1. I've only had one fill so never experienced it but from what i've read it your restriction loosening off is fairly common.
    I think that the weight dropping in "lots" happens sometimes too, just one of those funny things I guess!

  2. I don't have the band yet, but from what I've read restriction can fluctuate. Some people feel little restriction right after a fill, but then it kicks in. Others are like you.

  3. Andy, Yes, the restriction dissapating is pretty normal. Many things can affect restriction - weight loss, stress, even the weather.

    As for the weight dropping all the sudden, I think that is pretty common too. If it bothers you, you might start weighing yourself once a week.

  4. Andy - I think everybody covered it pretty well. One thing my Dr. always reminds me of is that as you lose fat around your stomach the band loosens and that can happen quickly if the right "glob of fat" goes away. I lose in little chunks too - kind of depressing, but cool when the numbers drop.

  5. I go abit like that too. It is normal for the band to loosen up as you lose weight...you are doing great
