 Could it be due to water retention?  That's the only think I can think of - hope you feel better soon.

So sorry you're having this problem!

I have the problem with the scarring/adhesions & it has been worse at TOM the last few months.  I asked my MD & he thinks it's because of the swelling/bloating in the abdominal area putting pressure up against the muscle the port is stitched into. 

A week or two ago I went off the BC pill (already had tubes tied & was just taking it for cramps/headaches) because the bloating was just crazy.  We'll see in about two weeks if the port pain is any better this month. 

Take care,
Amy

Is your pain right at the port or below?  A weekago Friday I had horrible pains just below the port and thought I was having an appenticitis attack.  I didn't want to go the ER and waited til Monday to go to the doctor.  They didn't think it was appenticitis or kidney stones.  They took X-rays and didn't find anything.  Since I was to start TOM that week they thought it may be related to that and said to wait til I was over TOM.  The pain isn't as bad now, but TOM is over and I am still having some pains. Mine was like your where it hurt to even take a breath.  I hope this won't happen every month and don't know if it's realated or not.  I guess I need to talk to my sugeron also.  Hope you feel better.  Koye
