    Could my lap band be causing my pain?

    I had lap band surgery over 8 years ago. For the past few weeks I've been experiencing pretty bad pain under my rib cage on the right side. Doc sent me for a CT Scan of my abdomen and an ultra sound of my gallbladder. All tests were negative for any problems with my organs. The pain seemed to ease quite a bit for a few days and now it is back full force. When I press on the spot that hurts the most I feel my lap band. It is very prominent to the touch. Can something having to do with my lap band be the cause of my pain? Sometimes the pain goes straight through me to my back. Kidneys are normal. Any thoughts? Thanks!
