Welcome to banded life...wind...Lol. Yes ECGREEN...it is definitely gas pains and walking is the best remedy. Also have someone give you karate chops across your shoulders to break it up.

ecgreen, I am having the same issue with my port. I was banded this past Friday (almost 4 days post-op now), and whenever I stand up I get a sharp pulling/burning feeling just below my port incision. I have no pain other than this so it is a bit unnerving. I'm giving it another day or two, as it does seem to be lessening a bit, but then I'm calling the doc since my appointment is not until a week from tomorrow. I'm certainly not happy that someone else is having this same pain, but relieved that I'm not alone, if that makes sense :) Please let us know how it goes.

It is the 5th day from surgery now for me and the tugging feeling has more or less stopped. I think I was overdoing it bending and lifting. Have been walking more and reminding myself I have had surgery! Hope you feel better soon xx

ecgreen and chitownbander I am not sure where your ports are located, but mine is in my chest...my surgeon told me that they are sown into place into the muscle (in the chest at least)...so mine was sore for my first two months...then whenever I lay on my left side it gets sore too. not sure if that is what is happening to you...but it could be a question you ask your doctors. I hope you both get to feeling better...and CONGRATS and WELCOME to BANDLAND!!!

Mikee57, thank you for the info. My port is below the breast and in my belly area. Today there is a lot less burning/pulling and a lot more feeling like I did an hour long ab workout. So, my guess is that it's just muscle pain from the anchoring.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
