Image of Fluid in a Gastric Band

Ever wondered what fluid looks like in your gastric band...??  

These little images show you a band with 2ml - 4ml - 6ml & 8mls in, pretty amazing right.   It is so good to see a visual and you can see why fluid has to be added slowly in small amounts.  With each stage you will need to change the mechanics of eating accordingly so you can still manage textured food ok.  This is why the 20+ rule is so important once you have had your surgery.
