I survived my first fill!! Wow, that was really uncomfortable and what a HUGE needle!
Okay, it really wasn't that bad, just some pinching and a lot of pressure, but she was in within a couple of minutes.
"Ouchy Ouchy Boo" is what I used to say to my mom when she brushed my long, long stringy hair when I was 5 years old :)
I am really glad that I decided to get my fill today. I feel great and have been taking down liquids like a champ. The NP, Chrissy, put in 2 cc's and I had 3 after surgery so I should be at a 5 now. She wanted to do more, but decided that with the holidays this would be a good number. She also said that I might be one more good fill away from my sweet spot. I am very happy that my doctor is aggressive with fills. I know that there are people who have doctors that are not as generous. I feel like if I walked in there tomorrow and asked for more they would seriously consider it. Chrissy also told me that if I were to stay on the clear liquids all day today and tomorrow that I might be able to nibble on some food at the holiday party tomorrow, I just have to make sure I chew very carefully. We shall see.
Thanks for the little push girls, without it I probably would not have gotten my fill today. You guys rock :)
