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

    • I believe in you I went through similar things I was 315 before I had my gastric sleeve surgery but I kept looking at all these bottles of medication I'm on and that what help me to do what I had to do ....
    • I love this! I am not buying anything either. When i was at my heaviest i bought a lot of beautiful clothes in much smaller sizes.. they have been sitting in my wardrobe for years, some of them. Now that i am finally on my way to fitting into them i am not buying a single thing until i know what actually suits me. All the clothes that fit me now i am getting rid of the second they are loose! I am saving a ton of money.. not buying so much food is also helping with that!
    • Sugar , nicotine, carb , I'm not a nice person. Self isolating!
    • I already planned to do some "lower"-carbing this week, though I may consider going ultra-low if I feel up to it
    • The "swelling" is from lymphedema. The PS interrupted your lymphatic drainage system And it takes a while for the body to "reconnect." And what you're experiencing with the compression gear is absolutely true! If you don't have the proper garment in place, it will cause worse swelling below the area due to the inability for that lymph fluid to drain. I wear my sleeve every day. If I don't, then my arm gets huge and if I don't wear my glove with it, then my hand turns into a balloon. I do feel better with it than without it. It gives a comfort/secure/structure feeling. LOL. So glad you are feeling better girlie!!! Oh also, you know me...biased low carber, but $10 bet says that if you ditched the high carb crap and went back to low carb, you would notice the end of your belly bloat starting in as little as 3-4 days and maybe a complete resolution of it in 2-3weeks. hehe. Sorry couldn't resist. You know me...always biased. TY for sharing your journey girlie!! You are so brave and have been a true warrior during this time!!
