Band erosion

Recommended Posts

Has anyone experienced band erosion? If so, can you tell me what it felt like? I'm experiencing extreme stomach pain... It's sharp pains and it won't go away. I have experienced this pain a lot since being banded in 2008. It's just getting worse though.

Thanks for your reply. I don't have any redness around the port area, and no swelling, just a general bloated feeling most of the time. This happens when I eat meat, so I have actually switched to a vegetarian diet as of last week. I had an upper gi about a month ago and the Dr. Said the band looked fine. Placement was good - no slippage, and he didn't say anything about erosion. I think I'm just worried over nothing!

I do notice, however, that my port area generally hurts if I touch it. I don't know why that is?
