Large knot in back/chest near port/band



Recommended Posts

I am 7 days out now from my op and I am still in pain. It feels like a big knot which starts at the middle of my back and is connected to the port in my chest area. I well like I have been rugby tackled. It is very uncomfortable and I have it 80%of the time. Is this normal? I seem to get it more at night as well.

Well, everyone is different, but most people say they are feeling much better by day 5 or 6. The port area is definitely the one that lingers...usually for 3-4 weeks before that pain is all gone. But yours sounds more intense so I'd say give your doctor a call. He's really the only one who can tell you what's going on.

I hope you're feeling much better soon!

Have you consulted your doctor? I dont think it's anything serious, but you should be talking to him/her, you should not be uncomfortable

Hi All,

I spoke to my doc & she said that the pain/knot/tightness is normal between day 5 to 7. I had it to about day 9. She said it is because all the other pain has gone and your body is getting used to something inside your body. She said with the walking taht I didn't over do it only that I noticed it more. She said my wounds where good

It is now Day 11 and I feel Ok. I only get sore if I bend over lots and if I over endulge in my new found puree diet ... REAL food....

Have a great day

Jo
