Hi Carol,
Thank you for your reply. I haven’t logged on for a while due to being on holiday and being busy. I had my operation privately as I was told I would never recieve PCT funding because I was not heavy enough!. I did expect to have to pay though and had considered the operation long before I had it so I saved up in preparation. I had my operation at Chichester and could not fault their service and care. It’s just this port pain, which incidentally has been more intermittent of late. However I also have difficulty lying on that side and cannot stand and pressure over the port. Still haven’t been back about it though. Well done on your 19lbs. Its not as easy as I thought it would be and has taken a lot of focus to get the weight off. Had a few hiccups of late but now re-focusing on getting this last 2 stone off over the next few months. Your right there’s not a lot of information on this problem as I have looked at other lapband forums as well. I too wonder what can possibly be done other than removal and I note that SJ who had hers removed and went onto having a bypass also still has port pain!!. Will let you know if I get any further information. Once again thank you for your reply.
