Feeling your band

Recommended Posts

I know I have seen posts about feeling your port under your skin, but can anyone else feel their band? Not feel it like it is clenching your stomach but last night my I rested my arm/hand on my mid-section and I felt the band. Let me tell you it freaked me right out because I am a complete chicken about stuff like that; I can't even put peirced earrings into other peoples ears because it grosses me out!

But I really could feel it, plastic and all. WEIRD!!

I'm thinking you probably felt a rib or muscle or something else that you probably haven't felt in a while. The top of the stomach where the band is lies behind the liver - and all that is behind the diaphragm and mostly behind the ribs.

Here are a couple diagrams I found that illustrate this part of the anatomy nicely:
