A picture of my belly!

...well inside my belly anyways.

lapband2

I added some nice tags to help you guys out. This was taken under fluoroscope as I swallowed barium for the contrast. If you imagine a circle around where the x is, that is my band! you can also see the pouch right above it and the line leading to the port which is under my abdominal muscle that they use to put in or take fluid out of the band. They see how quickly the barium goes through the band into the stomach to determine if you need a fill or not. You can see by how narrow mine is right now that they did not need to give me a fill today!
