Hey so I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on this. Before my surgery, my surgeon told me the incision on my left side would be the most sore. It definitely is but I'm starting to wonder if there is more to it. My surgery was a week ago tomorrow. I have been off of all pain meds for several days now. Since that time, that incision has been more sore and swollen than all of the others. But starting this morning, I started having a stabbing pain in it almost anytime I moved that is very strong. That has since changed to a very strong burning pain even when I just move my left leg. The incision site looks fine. No redness or drainage or anything but I'm starting to wonder if something else is going on. If I push on it firmly enough, there is a hard lump that is not on the opposite side.

Anyways, thoughts??

Sorry, can’t help you but, I would definitely ask the surgeons office if I was nervous. Good luck!

If is a larger incision, your surgeon might have put a stitch in to help keep it closed. You might be feeling it. Check with your doctor to be sure.

The lump is probably just some swelling. I had that in 5 of my 5 inscision, I freaked out thinking it was hernia.

If you are concerned, pls check with your doctor.

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.
