Stitch pain in left side :-(

Recommended Posts

Hi there, 

I was sleeved 3 weeks ago and when I hit the 2 week mark I started getting this excruciating pain in my left side.  The pain has been ongoing for more than a week.and I'm now taking panadine a few times of day so its bearable.  I read a few old threads of some band patients experiencing this however to hear from some more recent sleevers if they suffered the same problem and how long did it take go go away because its quite a horrible pain.

Good news is I've lost 6.5kg since the op but I just need to work out this pain issue.

I would talk to your doctor or surgeon.  I haven't had anything like that, 4 weeks since sleeving for me.  Only a burst of pain in my cuts if I stretch out in bed or try to do something too strenuous. I had quite bad pain where my port used to be after I had my band removed, but if you haven't had a band first, I would definitely check in case you've busted your stitches or something.  Well done with the weight loss though :) Hope you get the pain sorted.
