08/01/2008 12:20 AM I had Lap Band Surgery on the 9th of June, and as to date I have lost 40lbs, I started out at 413lbs. I was told shortly after surgery by my surgeon that it was very difficult for him to put the band on, because of my weight, and the thickness of the muscles in my stomach. He said that he put on the larger band, and that I actually had 2 ports. Yesterday I went in for my first fill, my dr's assistant could not find my port, and neither could my surgeon, after 4 tries they decided to schedule me for a barium swallow test next week to see if they can find the port that way. I am scared, has any one else experienced this problem? — angelsrwme
