Hello, I was just wondering about recovery. I had a lap band before and the spot where They put the port was sore for a really long time. When they removed it i had no problems and when i had my gall bladder out it wasn't to bad either. I was wondering

My dr said as its been in there a while ( since 2007) it may be a lot harder to remove. Also it might be pretty sore she may have to cut it out of my muscle. I know everyone was different and i can't wait to have it out no matter what i was just curiou
