Hi SJ & Pinkdiamond.
I am 7 months post op and had pain from the port from day one also. Trying to get any support from the surgeon or his team was like banging my head against a wall.
I am now waiting for a 2nd opinion as I was told to ‘stop prodding my belly’, ‘stick with it or have it removed’!.
I had my op on NHS, what about you?
There isn’t alot of info concerning this pain. I also have times where I can’t keep solids down and the last band fill was very painfull.
Sleeping can be painful, if I lay on my right the port sticks out and you can see the shape of it under my skin.
I have lost 19lbs in 7 months.
I was more active before I had the band fitted as the pain is worse the more I move.
