Port Relocation Inquiry

Recommended Posts


I am status-post lap band surgery 12/12/05. I have reached my desired weight but it has left my port protruding very bad and often very painful! Currently, it sits right above my waist line and the doctor gave indication that it can be relocated to my lower abdomen as well as replace it with a smaller port. Has anyone had their port relocated to their lower abdomen? If so, any problems? Better?

I feel like this is the only solution as my doctor indicated that he could replace the existing port to a smaller one at the same location but it would still protrude. I am self pay and this is very difficult to afford but I also have panic disorder and I cannot live with the way it is now.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! .... and, no gaining weight back is not an option! :)

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.
