Although early hours this morning I did start my period( sorry to be so graphic) would this have any bearing on my pain???

    It could be due to your menstrual cycle but I think it’s best you contact your team just to be on the safe side. pain is always something that needs to be investigated 😉 Please let us know how you get on.

    Thanks doodah

    I contacted my nurse and she said it would most probably be due to my menstrual cycle as your tummy swells and pushes your organs up which in turn was probably putting pressure on the internal stitches which would cause pain!!!….I have been back to normal today so I would presume she was right ;)….been a woman that don’t surprise me ;)…..my weight hasn’t moved since going onto sloppy food and she said that is also normal…..so alls well so shall carry on and wait for my first fill which is 31st October…..yipee!!!

    So glad to hear that your mind is now at rest and that you are more comfortable. What we women have to put up with eh?

    Can I also just say – I LOVE your avatar!!! Roll on 31 october too 😉 I’m so glad you are feeling so much more positive.
