I am 7 months post-op! For the last couple weeks I have noticed a lot of port pain, especially when I try to sleep! It's almost like a stabbing feeling! I have no nausea, or anything that would make me think that I need to call my Dr. Has anyone had this pain? I really don't want to make more out of this than necessary, but I hurt! On a scale of 1-10, at times a 7-8!

Thanks for reading this, and I look forward to your replys!

We had this discussion earlier today at my surgery center. Scar tissue develops around the band, the tubing, and the port. Scar tissue doesn't stretch, it tears and causes pain. I had horrible pain about 4 inches from my belly button long my waist this time last year and that was 7-8 months after my surgery. Everything I did hurt, including breathing. After running numerous gallbladder test it was discovered 3 months later that it was just scar tissue and a week or two after diagnosis it stopped - thank goodness! I don't know that this is your issue, but it is definitely a plausible option.
