    You have only had your surgery two weeks ago.  This is very early days; it will take time to heal.  Take the pain medication that you were prescribed.  If your were not given any, ask for some.   If the pain wosens or does not clear up, then see your doctor again.  Do not worry, post surgical pain is very normal!

    When they cut something away they 'burn' the wound to seal / heal it , this of course then becomes an inside wound for you to deal with, this may be the awful pain you are experiencing sad

    @mona89344  Hello Mona,

    I am many years older than you are, I had my gall  bladder removed about 10 years ago and whilst the surgery was very successful, it took a number of weeks for me to be free from pain.  Stick with it, rest as much as you can and give your body the chance to heal.  Good Luck,

    My surgeon told me up front I would n off 10 days. I actually missed 21, due to other complications. But it was 2 months before I had a pain free day. Each day is a bit better. At bedtime, I propped a thin pillow beneath my side, to help it not be so sore in the mornings. And I slept sitting up, for nearly 2 weeks. Healing just takes a long time. I know exactly what you are going through.
