    Frustrated

    Yes, I can tell the difference between the gas pain and the other soreness. Gas pain is gone now and my discomfort comes from the horrible soreness at the port site area.

    Thanks everyone for your input. I called the doctor twice and they didn't seem to want to help me so a family member brought over a few pain pills. Upsets me that my doctor was so against helping me. It's Sunday now and my surgery was Wednesday and I haven't needed anything but the toradol since yesterday afternoon. Had I known this was going to be the case I might have chosen another doctor!

    My girls are 1 and 3, and I will admit...I have been trying to do too much. Thank goodness today is Friday and hubby will be home for the next two days!

    I've called them twice. They told me to take Tylenol in addition to the toradol. So I guess I must suffer...I loved my doctor up until this point. I don't understand how you can operate and not provide adequate pain control.

    I had my surgery on Wednesday 3/25. I am still in SO MUCH PAIN! My doctor only prescribed toradol for pain and it's just not cutting it. How long did you guys experience pain-those of you that had pain? I know some don't have any, but apparently my pain tolerance just isn't very high. I wake up every morning barely able to move, I had tears in my eyes just getting out of bed this morning. I have two little ones and I'm just ready to be back to myself caring for them.

    Both my mother and mother in law have been banded for the past five years so I feel like I kind of know all of the "ropes". I understand there are possible complications, while my appointment/surgery scheduling was quick, I've been thinking and researching this for a while. My mom has even had hers slip and removed and put back in...I just know that with my husband and I possibly wanting another child one day in the future, this is the option I'm most comfortable with for pregnancy.
