I am having my flipped port fixed on Tuesday. I'm a nervous wreck! He said he is doing it under local anesthesia and something to make me sleepy. Has anybody had this done? I'm scared.

Not many people have bands anymore, and port exchanges are pretty rare (I havent done one in years)

But theyll give you something that will basically make you feel really drunk/high, and then the surgeon will numb you up.

Odds are you wont even know you had surgery, and will barely remember anything.

I just got home from my port revision surgery. It was a easy surgery. I am home now and my stomach is very swollen (not sure if this is normal) and I am in a lot of pain. Dr. said he will refill my band in two weeks. Hopefully the swelling will go down soon.
