Having a C-section and...



Recommended Posts

I had a c section it was not planned but hey it's over and done with but my question is them opening me up do you any of you think it could have messed with my band or port at all or even went near it. I can't feel my port and I have a call in to my surgeon but he has not called back I mean I would just die if something happen to my band due to the c section.

Anyone have a c section and the band?

I had my sections years before banding, but I don't think they go near that area. Of course, anything is possible.

More than likely you are still swollen from surgery and that's why you can't feel the port right now.

You could call your ob/gyn and ask. Or you could call your bariatric surgeon and ask.

I agree with Melissa, I say your still swollen from the csection. I know when I had my baby I was almost to the point of having a csection so the doctor spoke to me about it and I asked him if it would do anything to the band he said nope. But then again I think everyone is different but I can't seeing having a csection messing up your band or port. I would get in touch with ob or surgeron and speak to them about it and get it looked at. Good Luck :) Congrats!!

I was banded in 2007 and had a c-section march 2010 I had no problems at all. I don't see how they go any where near your port. Only thing I had was a little heart burn during and after delivery they allowed me to take Zantac. Hope this helps.

I had my band in April (didnt know I was pregnant at the time) and had a c section 7 weeks ago. All has been fine. I don't see why a section would have anything to do with a band or port, they are working inside the uterus not anywhere else.

I had a planned c-sect in June and had the same concerns as you are having. I talked it over with my Doctor and she talked it over a with a surgeon and he assured her it would not interfere with the band. Congratulations!!!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
