Yesterday, when I visited my surgeon for an inspection of one of the incisions giving me grief, he decided to give me my first fill ( sounds weird, LOL, but Bandsters understand).
Well, even after telling me to take it easy, I managed to experience my first PB. ( Productive Burp) but it was the self inflicted type of PB
Aside from the fact that I felt peckish, it was 11pm and everyone was in bed, I wound my way to the fridge, heated up one tiny Falafel, drowned in Eggplant dip, and, even though I chewed it slow, took a break, the dryness of it made it lodge quite firmly way before the band.
All I could think was Oh Shit, you've done it now Girl!
Not only was it stuck, not only was no one around, I could not breathe properly. I had 3 seconds to panic, then 10 seconds to calmly walk to the downstairs bathroom, look in the mirror, see the fear in my eyes and throw my finger down my throat. It took around several goes to clear the blockage.
With everything I was told, and reading about others experiences with this, I STILL managed to do it.
So, if you are reading this, and you're still yet to be banded, or awaiting a first fill, take heart, keep calm, use common sense and don't panic. I don't know if this was the right thing to do, but it was all I could do.
I am going to have to slow down, and now avoid dry types of foods.....
Damn, I was so looking forward to that Falafel!
Ciao for now,
