I am getting the same pain as you are..My doctor also said that is where your stomach was worked on and that it is healing..You feel like a knife is jabbing into your left side.Im glad im not the only one too.But i have to admit my bellybutton area is extremely very sore and can not wear jeans yet.
  6. Thank you for the encouragement...
  7. On Feb 3 I had my band removed and had the sleeve.I was a success with the band but I slipped twicw and was getting sick.Ok so in a nutshell when they removed all my fluid a month and half before my surgery I gained almost 30 pounds.I was at time of surgery 173.I was able to get approved as a conversion due to my complications.So here is my dliema..Since surgery I only have lost 13 pounds.The scale has not moved in two weeks.I drink a protein shake (optifast ) for breakfast and lunch with a jello and maybe a pieve of laughing cow cheese.For dinner I ate 3.5 oz. of cottage cheese and all my water I drink during the day..Any help would be greatly appreciated..Sometimes im just wanting my band back

    Question for revisions

    OMG...I feel a little bit better.I had my band removed and had the sleeve for the same reason.I was 150 pounds one month prior to my revision and gained 23 pounds in one month once the took out all my fluid.So my starting weight from the time i had the sleeve was 173.Had the surgery on Feb 3.Here is what im feeling though.I only lost 13 pounds and getting very disappointed.I just really thought i would have lost a little more weight then this.Any suggestions.Im Now at 161 and i im at a total stall for 2 weeks
  9. Same here. I was sleeved on Feb 3.. I lost 12 pounds and this week I lost nothing.It does get discouraging but everyone says it will come off.Im going to start the treadmill routine and see if that helps. Good luck on your journey

    weight loss with sleeve

    Hi there...I had my band removed and gastric sleeve done at the same time 2/3/2014.. I have to admit this is so strange. I have had my band for 10 years and did rather well with it.I lost 100 lbs and was able to keep it off.Then the past 6 months it was getting me sick and they removed all my fluid.In one month I gained 25 lbs.I think it was because I deprived myself of foods I wasn't able to tolerate with the band.Well im on a new chapter in my life and have the gastric sleeve.First week I lost 10 pounds and was very happy.Today at the end of my two weeks I didn't loose a pound.Feeling disappointed.Today I was able to eat cottage cheese 4 oz.and had no problem eating the whole thing.Im scared I made the wrong decision.When I was a band I would have not been able to eat the whole thing without getting sick. Please anyone who can give me encouragement

    Long Island Doctors Wanted

    I used Dr Rajeev Vohra.He has done the most gastric sleeves and revisions in the new York area.
