How will I know when it’s time for a band fill?

The gastric band is designed to make you feel full from smaller portions, and to feel full for a longer period of time.  It gently squeezes the stomach to create a small pouch, and restricts how much food and liquid may pass.  You should have the sensation of “restriction” from your band with most meals.  If you tolerate large portion sizes without any sense of “restriction” from you band with most meals… it’s time for a fill!
