Just had band removed b4 sleeve, in pain

Recommended Posts

Hi, I've just (28 Jan 14) had my band removed before being sleeved in 3 to 4 months. Am I just a being a baby or is this part of the process really painful?

I was told it would take 30 to 45 mins, it took 2 hours 15! I had a gastroscope done at the same time. I have 7 incisions and I feel like I have broken ribs. Everywhere hurts. I'm pretty pain tolerant after 9 babies a broken back and neck, not much phases me anymore, but this! OMG!

I'm staying another night in hospital and have just come off the PCA onto oral meds.

One of the nurses here told me, people who have band removal struggle with this pain and that the sleeve seems easier for them. Is this true. I feel like such a sook!

Any help would be great full
