Oh sweet port pain!!

I can DEFINITELY feel my access port now. For those of you who are not familiar there is a port that can be accessed via needle to fill the lap band's inside cushions with saline solution. This helps to close the band tighter to create greater weight loss or in turn remove solution to create a larger opening to the stomach. The port is sutured onto the abdominal wall muscle so when you lose weight, you don't lose the port...well, I can definitely feel it now. That's where 95% of my pain is right now...not much else is going on in the life of's a video to prove it!
