Band removed 11/13/18



Recommended Posts

Ok I am still trying to figure this forum out since I have never been on one before and I do not know if it is getting to people that can answer my questions. On 11/13/18 I had the band and scar tissue removed. It was very hairry!!! What was supposed to take 30 min. to maybe 45 ended up 4 hours. My family was beside themselves with worry. Today I am 3 days out and feel like I got kicked by a horse, but I know as time passes the pain and discomfort will lessen. My DR. told my Husband that the port that was inside was one that was used for cancer patients, it was not the right port. He asked an odd question about had I had other procedures done. My Husband told him only what I had told him. I was upfront and honest with my DR. about any surgeries I had had in the past. Maybe this would explain why I had so much pain in my right side where the port sight was. I know that it had flipped and twisted. I know that there is a secret club where DR.'s cover each others ass but this was not right what was done to me. I am going back in in Feb. and have gastric bypass. My question is will I feel this lousy after I have it done. I have had spasmatic pains. I usually have a high threshhold for pain but this has kicked by butt. I would appreciate any info anybody can give. Also if you have ever heard of a cancer port being used for this kind of surgery.

Best Regards

Wanda

You have got to be kidding me! That's awful.

You may try posting in the gastric bypass section for responses.

Best of luck!

      Stalls are the WORST.  I know they happen, but I am still disappointed.  I've been the same weight for over 2 weeks.

        I know the feeling. I did some major online shopping with all the sales around black friday. In tops I wear anywhere between a S-L. In pants from 6-10. But I must own the world's most elastic panties, because -100+ lbs, I still wear the same undies! :lol:

      I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness
