After 10 years my port became infected..now it needs to come out



Recommended Posts

After 10 years of living with the Band my port has become infected probably due to recent over exercising and moving furniture haven’t seen Doc yet - 4 hours to go before appt. The doctor’s receptionist told me that The lap band will most likely will have to be removed. A part of me says yes I do want it out as I had reflux and had to have all the Fluid removed but still had restriction but it was restriction on healthy foods. I’ve improved my diet in the past few years with only organic whole foods with almost no or rare junk food. Totally not me in the past. Gratefully my hormones have calmed down as I reach 60 I’m praying that the inner child I was feeding has grown up🙏 Requesting prayers. Thank you❤️

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
