Port Pain After Fill

Recommended Posts

Has anyone experienced pain around the port area?

Ever since the surgery I have been tender and felt pain around my port area. No pain at all around the band or when I eat.

I got my first fill last week and ever since the pain has been worse. It hurts mostly when I am lying down.

Is this normal?

I had a fill last week and it was hard for my dr. to find the "spot" so she kind of dug around to find the port.

I had to go back in for a .5 unfill in the afternoon. I was sore for 2 days but now it is fine. I had circular bruise as well. I feel ok and this fill is WORKING!!!!:(:thumbup::)

You don't say how long ago you had your wls. I had some discomfort for a while post-op. Tenderness.

After a fill the area is tender for a few days, too. My doc uses local anesthesia when he fills. I've had 4? fills. The last one I was the most tender but nothing terrible.

      OMG! My time is quickly approaching! I can't believe in 5 days, my life will be changed forever (for the better!). I have thought about this surgery for years, but kept telling myself I didn't need it. Now that I can view it as a tool and not a solution, I realize I do need this tool. This tool will not only help me physically, but mentally as well!

      Getting close - 196 lbs as of this week.  Goal is 195.  Actually, I'm thinking of adjusting my goal.  I'd like to get down to 185 to get rid of this scraggly belly jiggle, then try to build back up to 200 with muscle instead.

      I’m a complete novice on forums but I think my experience I’ve had so far following a gastric balloon insertion will be interesting to someone…
      I had my obera 365 inserted on 31/08/21.
