Left Shoulder Pain
I am working with my surgeon on some left shoulder pain issues. I have been reading up a little on this phenomenon with lapbanders. There was of course the shoulder pain following surgery but this is different. Obviously I am nearly a year out from surgery, so that's obvious. Anyway, lately I have been getting what I believe to be referred pain from my diaphragm. It feels like I can't take a full breath without a stabbing pain. But if I lay down or stretch out sometimes I can get it to go away. I have read some other lapband blogs and message boards and have found others who have experienced this too. Anybody else have this? My doc's office is supposed to call back sometime today and decide what, if anything, I need to do. Otherwise, weight loss is going good, scale still reads 216 this morning which is awesome to see that number stick. Now I am just waiting for the follow up from my surgeon's office.
