Hi Gill.B, this is Gill.T!!!

I had my band fitted 14 months ago, and like you had v little abdominal pain (unfortunately I did have bad shoulder pain, but that went after a week)

I did (and occasional still do) get port pain. It was difficult to sleep on my left side for +/- 2 weeks, and any activity that involved the muscle the port is attached to, was uncomfortable for +/- 6 weeks. So I think what you are experiencing is quite normal.

My port has become a bit of a “barometer” insomuch that it becomes uncomfortable if I a) eat too much, b) eat too fast or c) drink too soon after eating – so it’s quite useful really!!!!!

Wishing you well with your bandfill and continued losing

Gill x
