Lap band suddenly tight.



Recommended Posts

I was banded in 2010. I had all of my Fluid removed from my band about 4 years ago. The last week or so I’ve been having some stomach issues. Cramping in lower stomach, pain behind shoulder blades, GERD symptoms. They thought it was my gulbladder but all checks out fine. I was having some pain right where my lap band is, kind of gassy pain. Now am feeling like I have a fill that is a bit too tight but I had no fill at all. I always get tighter around my period or when I have the flu but I’m so confused as to why I’m feeling this way and am worried it has slipped or eroded. My port sight is also tender. Someone help! I’m having major anxiety and I don’t have very many options for doctors around her that will take a patient banded it Mexico. Can severe anxiety or stress cause this or is something seriously wrong??

I would seriously get to a doctor, port site pain and a tight feeling are not good signs. As far as doctors not taking patients because of where they were banded, if you have a doctor that tells you they won't treat you, I'd ask them if they remember their Hippocratic Oath...
