Jun 29, 2011I have been having left port side pain on a continuous basis since about 6 months. I have to drink hot water with every meal. I'm not sure if this is normal, but it seems normal for me. My husband point out my complains and the pain that I have been have this year. I received my re-check paperwork from my doctor, perfect timing. I have an appointment Aug. 25. I am thinking about removing the Lap Band and have the Sleeve procedure. I havn't lost weight and I'm just tuck in a rut.
