Pulling and pain at main incision site 5 weeks post sleeve



Recommended Posts

Has anyone had this happen? Pain is more like a dull ache than anything else. Just wondering if what I am feeling is the early stages of a hernia?

I had a pulling pain as well. Sometimes it was sharp and pulling, other times it was dull, pulling and almost constant.

I asked around, and some had the same feeling,while other didn't. I'm 4 months post and it only comes back every now and then...always in the same place.

I had concerns about this a couple months post-op when I asked in office about it the NP said it was most likely scar tissue.

That doesn’t mean it can’t be a hernia. I do have a hiatal hernia as well but that pain is up by my ribs. You can always bring it up at your next visit.

Yes, I had this, too. It was very alarming. I called my doctor and they said it was normal, a side effect of getting back Into normal activities.

Now I’m 4 1/2 months from surgery and I only get tiny tinges occasionally when do an extended reach. So I assume it’s mostly healed and not a problem.

Thanks for the reassurances. I did have a stitch cut at 1 week out to help drain a hematoma, so I guess this could just be because the rest of the stitches are dissolving. Haven't been cleared for exercise until next week, so I guess I'll see what happens then.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.
