I know you aren't doctors...but...
Anyhow, suddenly I have this extreme soreness and some weird chest pain under my right breast. It's sore like somebody punched me. I haven't eaten anything but an apple in the past 2 hours. I guess it could be gas, but if so it's not like any other gas I've ever felt. It's also in my right back area. Yeah, I know, not a lot of help.
I'm actually, ironically, working at my second job in the ER of our local hospital. Just wondering if I am getting too excited too fast and should just try to wait this out.
I have no fills and have had zero complications with my band so far. The port is very prominent so I feel it and it doesnt' feel like it's changed, but it appears that the area around it is a bit harder.
Any guesses before I register to be treated?
It went away after about 20 minutes. Then later on that night I was woken with a sharp pain in my left abdominal area. That pain was even worse. I'm like, what the heck is going on??
Today I am fine. But I am going to make two appointments, one with my ob/gyn and the other with my wls surgeon!
Thanks for the heads up. Wasn't thining hiatal hernia. And no mylanta because it didn't persist.

The pain in the left side is more likely to be from your stomach. BUT, when you have a hiatal hernia and a band, your gut can become inflamed and swollen, causing a lot of different areas to hurt. And the hiatal hernia can also allow part of your stomach to sneak in the gap in your diaphragm, causing pressure feelings on your throat.
I'm thinking you should see your doc about it and see if that's what's going on, Donnamarie. I take Dexilant every day and it helps somewhat.
