Port Pain Update and Other Stuff

I am so thankful for my fellow bandster bloggers who told me that this port pain thing was probably nothing. I remember reading somewhere that the newly banded get super paranoid that they're going to hurt their bands. I am guessing I have experienced just that. I slept with one of those ThermaCare heat patch things stuck to my belly last night (since I noticed that a hot shower helped a little) and I woke up feeling a lot better. I'm still babying it and I'll still call the doctor tomorrow, but it's a relief to not be constantly uncomfortable.

I am so thankful for the Sisterhood of the Traveling Clothes. I have a job interview tomorrow and I will be wearing a pair of pants that Nikki sent me. They are really nice and they fit perfectly. I'll try to have my husband take a picture of me in them in the morning. My tops still fit, so all I needed to buy was a pair of shoes.

As for the bandster trip to Chicago, I am bummed that I won't be able to join everyone but I definitely can't make travel plans since I'm not working. Hopefully next year will be in Florida!

YAY! I am so glad that you will get some good use out of em! Woot Woot!!:)

I too had a spaz out about my port...I thought, and the doc too, that I flipped it...so that stunk...it was all scar tissue tho.

I think I still baby it a bit...I dunno if its cuz I am losing some of the fat that covers it...but darn it...if I lay kinda on my side I can feel it!! That is a bit odd...

xoxox,
Nikki

I know exactly what you mean about the port pain, I have it, too! It only bothers me occasionally and I haven't really found out what triggers it. I have a fill on Wednesday and I'm going to ask about it, I'll let you know what my surgeon says. Good luck with the job interview!!
