    Eat more after a fill??

    Hello! Yes I went and saw Mr winnett as I was worried, as it turns out the band was primed with some air, when they pulled all the salene out to check the level air came out with it... So when they topped me up, more fluid went in however the overall capacity of the band was less as the air had been removed.. Hope that makes sense as when I read over it... It's a bit confusing.

    Eat more after a fill??

    Was having good restriction.... had a fill then all the sudden I was eating alot more than pre fill.... Logically makes no sense and am fearing the worst (leaking port). Anyone had an experience like this? What was the cause?

    Hi guys, Thanks for the reply! When I get the all clear from the surgeon to exercise that's when I will commence. I have a bike rack on my car so travel to cycle shouldn't be a problem if u have a bike? Anyone at a gym? I was thinking of joining Fenix at watergardens? Any suggestions? Cheers!

    Dr Jason Winnett works with Dr Nottle

    I was banded by Jason on 19/5/2011 at Footscray, overall an excellent experience... Absolutely nothing to worry about. Jason is very approachable and makes you very comfortable... He is trust worthy. He also patched up a hernia while he was in there (I had no idea I had one) Recommended!
