Hi Thipy78

I REALLY noticed this! Wearing those snug jeans became for special occasions. Then as soon as I got home, I'd whip them off and on would go the elasticated waist!

When lying on my side at particular angles, I would feel a little stab from the inside out, but I just adjusted myself. 

If it's really starting to irritate you, I would go and have a word with your consultant.  I remember the advice I was given... "..if it starts bothering you, let me know".  He didn't really have any intention of taking them out unless they did.   Because of this, I had the first lot removed and the 2nd lot just came out when I had my THR on that side.

Sometimes a loss of weight will mean you'll feel them more - I know I certainly did when I lost the recovery-weight.

Personally, I don't think it will cause damage, but it's always best to get the opinion of a professional if you're concerned. x
