I had my TT 4 weeks ago. I had my lapband moved too. There is localized pain in the lower abdomen right under where the lapband is placed. There is swelling there too which is bigger than the other side. It hurts at the touch too. At times the pain is really bad, it hurts to move in certain directions, it wakes me up at night. I also have fat necrosis. Is this localized pain normal? I'm worried the stitches have burst or something serious.
