I felt amazing for the first 3 weeks but as I starting doing more, I have had a bit ache in my side, but not enough to worry me, I just think it was bound to happen after surgery, I also did a bit to much as I felt so well , but my body soon told me to slow down again. I am eating normal food, I am a bit constipated but easy to clear with a bit of spicey food, haha. I did have one embarrassing diareah episode, but it didn't seem to be connected to any food and as a friend who visited, had had a bug a few days earlier, I am hoping it's more likely to be connected to that, fingers crossed. I feel I am just about back to normal, but I am still going to try to remember I have had major surgery so am going to try and behave myself for a few months.
Apart from a few twinges of pain and a bit of an ache occasionally all my symptoms have gone. No constant ache on my right hand side and back or pain when I excersise. I don't have nausea in the mornings, cramps when I eat fatty food or that twisted feeling when I bent or stretched. I haven't had a headache since my op, I have stopped itching in bed at night and although I have had a few hot flushes, they feel more like what I expected from the menapause not terrible sickness and lightheadness with them. I also haven't had the chills since. The reason I have spelt out my previous symptoms is that my GP and my consultant had both said that most of these symptoms were not connected with my GB and that as I didn't have the 'normally' binary pain they associated with Gallstones they didn't feel the op woudl make any difference . But it's has changed my life so much it's incredible. I think they are not following patients up so are not understanding the full extent of symptoms, so I will be writing to my consultant to update him and tell him he was wrong and had put me through a long wait for no reason, while he questioned me at every stage.
Having the op was the best think to happen for me. I hope you get such good results as I have.
