I had my gallbladder out on Wednesday following 8 - 10 weeks with really nasty symptoms that I'm sure you've all had some, if not all, of - intense abdominal pain that doesn't go for hours, sickness, fever, jaundice, sweating. Luckily, my GP was on it straight away and I was diagnosed with Gallstones/Cholecystitis really quickly via ultrasound.
The procedure was started laparoscopically but converted to open due to how infected and inflamed my gb was. My surgeon has been and explained the difficulties he had because of this and had to leave around 10% of it in due to the risk to other organs.
Since the op I've been pretty upbeat about it, pain has been relatively minimal so far but I have 2 drains in which are starting to get quite sore at times.
Just really wanting to know how people have recovered from this procedure? I've been told around 4 weeks until I can return to work, which would be ace, but I can't even sit up on my own at the minute so I'm struggling to believe it!
