Avatar f tn I have stormed several message boards, most of the information is relatively useless for me, because most of the information is of people who had the lap-band surgery nearly 10 years ago and there have been changes since then. What my question is: Has anyone had a moderate/severe problem with excess skin after surgery?
Avatar n tn I have heard of a doc does this, and who inserts a platinum wire around the circumference of the new opening. Scar tissue builds up around the wire, and that acts as a band to keep it in place. Can you do this?
Avatar n tn It was a large Band Aid that left a large Band Aid shaped rough patch of skin that itched like crazy. Made it worse by scratching it (with my finger pads to try and not gouge holes in me) but with Hydrocortisone and hand lotion (all I had for moisturizer ) it's getting better.
Avatar n tn I had a lap band and lost all of the wieght I wanted then the band slipped. I got a new band but gained weight back don't know why because I don't eat much at all. I also can feel port under skin it's uncomfortable. I don't know what to do now have the band removed and have gastric surtgery or another band placed. My doctors all tell me I need to lose weith but I can't even lose 1 pound.
4059843 tn?1541419296 S incase any of you need this information to clarify your opinion, well i do pull the rubber band very far. The rubber band i use is also a very tough and thick one. It leaves red marks sometimes for a few hours,.Although the longest and the toughest marks i had 3-5 days.
Avatar m tn When did everyone start buying new clothes I'm 7 wks tomorrow and my clothes fit but when buttoned sooo ununcomfortable. When did you ladies show with your first pregnancy?
Avatar m tn Lately, upon using the elastic bands, I have noticed that the purple spots look more purple while using the band and they take a while o become less noticable after intercourse is over (a few hours hours). Probably resulting from the rubber band usage, I get flaky skin around my foreskin after intercourse or masturbation. Normally the purple spots are noticable when you look closely, only slightly darker spots can be seen during normal times, when no sexual activity is involved.
Avatar f tn Hi, "Impetigo is an infection of the skin. Any wound that doesn't heal, or a wound that increases in size, usually has become infected. The infected sores: * are less than 1 inch in diameter * start as small red bumps, which rapidly change to cloudy blisters, then pimples, and finally sores * are often covered by a soft, yellow-brown scab * may be draining pus. Impetigo often spreads and the sores increase in number from scratching and picking at the initial sore.

Avatar f tn About 3 weeks ago I had a cut on my stomach and i put a bandaid on it with neosporin. About 45 minutes later, i removed the band-aid and there was a brown outline of the band-aid on my skin. I am caramel complexion, and the outline was about 4 shades darker then my skin. It has gotten a little lighter, but not back to its original color. HOW DO I CLEAR IT UP AND GET BACK MY NORMAL SKIN COLOR???.
230972 tn?1224470126 I realise this is only a normal progression that everything moves out and up but... will it poke out of my skin eventually and be visible (under the skin i mean). Also Ive heard that your port can be dislodged by the baby. Has anyone here been pregnant and what did they experience band wise. Any info would be greatly appreciated!
Avatar m tn Hi, and I too, think it's wonderful that you finally talked to your doctor! Skin chewing is a habit which you can overcome. There are things that are colorless that you can put on your cuticles that taste bad which may help. One thing a lot of therapist use is the "rubber band" therapy. Keep a rubber band on your wrist, and every time you want to chew your cuticles, snap the band, and snap it hard. It will sting but also stop the thought process of chewing your cuticles.
Avatar f tn t have a bubble butt you probably will have trouble keeping the waist up and if you are not that big aroundbthe belly, the band will probably slip so tuck the band under your bra or wear a snug cami . Cami normally works good.
Avatar n tn Oh my goodness yes same here. I swear I'm allergic to the band on maternity pants but it's all I can fit into.
572909 tn?1218268531 I am 33 years old. It started with sensitive painful skin for about two days on my upper back ( left side) then the tell tale rash popped out. It was painful and oh so itchy. I got a second eruption a day or two later in the same " band" but moving onto my side towards my chest. It has progressively been getting better, except that today( about 7 days after the initial outbreak) I am noticing on my chest some more intensely itchy patches, it to being in the same"band".

Avatar f tn They told me almost any jeweler will cut off rings and that they way they do in preserves the integrity of the band while at the hospital, the way they cut it usually leaves the band very difficult to repair.
1415174 tn?1453243103 I had beed diagnosed with eczema on my legs and hands by my FP. I have been using Clobetasol off and on for years a day or two at a time. About a year ago I had a pink band develop that didn't have bumps and didn't itch on my ankels. I put Clobetasol on it and it faded some but didn't go away.
5739386 tn?1378836460 But the hospital have new a belly band to put around my stomach I would where that add often as possible so your skin heals and shrinks better

1533352 tn?1307054656 Without fail, every single time I pulled my bare foot out of my shoe to try-on a different shoe, someone would comment about the band-aids covering my feet as slid my bare feet in and out of one new pair shoes after another.

Avatar m tn I bought a cheap bander and attempted to try if t waasto tight well on the try the band popped off to my surprise and immediately disappeared into my skin. I would not of thought that my penis would have swallowed the band that fast. I panicked and must have passed out. I came to to my penis aching around the band and numbness toward my head. Not wanting to embarrass myself I tried getting it off which I blacked out a few more times.
