Pain On The Port Side

For the past couple of days I have had tenderness and pain on the side with my port. It happens when I am turning or reaching up/bending down. I haven't had pain on my side since healing from surgery. Has anyone else had this happen???

Yes!!! I just posted something about it. It is making me crazy! I'm only 2 weeks post op but not sure I should be feeling like this. I know for sure it is not gas pains but rather it feels like something is pulling on my muscles. Sometimes it is a brief stabbing sensation. It doesn't always happen though. I can't figure out what is triggering it.

I had it too my first week....quite often. My doctor said its normal...those abdominal muscles are healing from being "stabbed". However, as the swelling in my abdomen has subsided so has the pain. Its only every now and then. However, you should still consult with your doctor just to make sure.

My hubby read somewhere that the port tube is actually hooked to our muscles inside our stomach, not left loose as pictures show. Could this be the stabbing?

Well, I have to say that I am three-months post op and I still get the pain from time to time. I think Butterfly Effect may be on to something......... and I guess the shifts in our bodies may add to this??? I think everybody else's guess is as good as mine.....LOL
