Getting a fill after 5 years of no fluid.

Hello! I got my band back in 2007, I lost 30 pounds right off the start and then it just dwindled down to nothing. I ended up joining weight watchers and that helped me lose another 20 but by this time I think I had taught my self how to eat around it. Fast forward 3 years and I got a piece of chicken stuck (for over 8 hours) and I had to go in and get my band emptied. By this time my insurance that I had was not covering this anymore so I just decided to not go back because I couldn't afford it. Now 5 years later I finally have insurance that will cover it again and so I have made an appointment to go get a fill. Any suggestions on maybe what I should do prior to getting this done? Should I redo the post op diet? Restart Diet?
