Numbness after lap band removal surgery

on 4/5/17 6:27 pm

Hi guys! Hope everyone is doing welll. I had revision surgery on March 16. Doc was unable to proceed with sleeve but did remove my lap band, fixed up some scar tissue and sewed me up. A day or two later I started getting numbness in my left thigh. Then pins and needles and pain. Stabbing pain. It's not going away. It's in the left thigh, side and top. Surgeon put me on neurontin for a month. He said maybe the way I was positioned during surgery. I've had No relief. Its so uncomfortable and painful. Has anyone ever experienced this or heard of this ? I think its time to seek another doctor's opinion too.
