Don't be aggressive with your fills. I would suggest no more than 1cc for the first fill.

For the fill the doctor will have you lie on your back and feel for the port. Once they find the port there is a rather long, but not to big needle that they stick in. You will feel slight pressure and the typical needle prick. The doctor should pull on the syringe to make sure there is in deed no fluid already in the band from the surgery. As they will put fluid in to check the function of the band and the placement.
Once they put how ever much fluid they are going to put in. They usually have you sit up and sip a little water.
I can tell you once you start to have restriction you can feel everything go down. Feels a bit weird, but you get use to it.
Also, once you have the fill be very cautious of what and how you eat things chew, chew, chew.
I don't know if you have had anything stuck yet, but trust me you will know it and there is only one way to relieve the pain.

Sounds like things are going very well for you. Best of luck to you.

I haven'T had anything stuck to the point of vomiting yet, but I have had things stick where it was kinda painful and I had to wait a bit for the food to go down.

Got my first fill on Tuesday! It was only 1cc added. I am 5lbs lower than what my monthly goal was so I'm really excited about that. I'm going to try and aim for 10lbs lost a month. I feel like another cc or 2 will get me into the "green zone" and I'll really start dropping wight.

Way excited for the future!

Great. Wait a month and see how you feel. If you still feel like you could have more restriction then get another cc. Like I said take it slow. Some doctors if your losing will make you wait longer for a fill. Keep up the great work. And listen to your body.
