A Question

This coming Monday at 2:45 I go in for my first fill ---What a relief ---because I can eat anything ---and hunger has been creeping back up on me. The question---Do I fast before? My Dr. said nothing and when his office called to confirm, while I was at work , they said nothing.
Can't wait to see how the band works after all of this preparation!

I'm just not to eat a big meal before I go and just drink up til an hour before. My doc never says anything. You don't want a big meal sitting in your stomach, but something light. Every doc is different. Some don't give any guidelines. After I stay on liquids for the evening and then mushies/regular food the next.

I try to follow the philosophy of being able to tell as much from a fill as you can at the time. I don't eat within several hours of a fill so I know my pouch is empty. I also stay as hydrated as possible, as dehydration can tighten your band. Happy Fill!

Just wanted to respond to your comment on my post. You're wanted here. Anyone who can put up with all of us is in the group. No way out!

Hope the fill went well.

My fill doc says no food for four hours prior and then liquids for one day and then mushies for the following day after. When I had my first fill, I didn't eat prior because I'm not normally hungry at that time of day. I was so hungry afterwards.
