I also had port pain from the day my band was fitted until the day it was removed, and that area remains very tender almost a year later. My band was fitted at another hospital, but removed at St Richards. The problem with mine is the type of port and the way that it pulled my stomach muscles everytime I moved, it was too painful to exercise with, so not very practical for assisting with weight loss! I also had continuous stomach rumblings and dreadful bloating, as well as numerous other problems.

With the problems and concerned you are having, perhaps you should have a chat with your surgeon? He might have some suggestions to help you.

Good luck.
