Interestingly enough, I posed the question as to which side is your port located on LapBandTalk to fellow October Bandsters.
The responses were all over the abdomen. Some were right sided, others left, some just below the sternum, while others responded just above the belly button. Wow, who would think that surgeons would have such variability with where they located the port.
My port is on the right, and the site is still quite a bit sore. When I bend I know it, feel it, and let out an eek of pain if I move the wrong way. Hopefully, this will all fade over time.
So today's good news (for me at least) is that I am eating much better. I have become quite creative with the protein shakes, adding peanut butter, and pudding, and yogurt. Quite delicious I must say :). I have also been doing much better with getting the 64 oz of fluid into me. I guess a learining curve, but not nearly as suffering as I thought it would be..
I have not paid too much attention to the scale, as I still have my bloated belly, and yes still a bit of gas. But it is getting better and I am still so happy with my decision to get the band.
