I've had 4 fills so far I'm up at 7.6 cc's in a 10 cc band ! I wonder why such a big difference . I wonder if it varies that much between everyone ? I was at 338 lbs and now I'm 260 16 months after my Banding. Wish it was faster but my doctor seems really happy with my pace . Last fill was 8 and I couldn't get water down ! So next day she pulled a little out.View Thread
