    Had my surgeons post-op appointment today and he decided no fill because I am not super hungry, I am losing weight consistently, and I'm on the tail end of antibiotics for the infection in one of my wounds. I tried to get him to give me a fill, but he said nuh, maybe in 4 weeks, but while I am losing weight and not super hungry, I can be fill free. Have any others had that experience?
