    no ... Feel so much better .

    but your question is only requesting negative responses and you will already know a minority are left with either diahreah or constipation and your question will get negative responses from those few who suffer after.. Are u wanting an excuse to not have the op? 

    So many on here left their gallbladder operations so late that they risked rupture infections jaundice etc... In fact my cousin is at this moment fighting for his life in hospital as he passed a giant gallstone that blocked his bowel causing him to collapse and stop breathing ... 

    Hate to be dramatic but their are risks of leaving them in ...

    hope all goes well Monday and tell us how it went

    Susan, I'm in the same position as you, I was due to have op on 14th but hospital cancelled it now I'm due to have it on Thursday. I'm absolutely terrified but I know its best to have it done now than to risk severe problems later on like the previous poster's cousin, (sally that is horrible I hope he is better soon)

    I'm seeing my Dr tomorrow as for the past week I've felt short of breath and chest tightness. I've had this before but not this long so in worried it could be asthma do want to get properly checked before op.

    Try to have a nice relaxing bath tonight, the theatre staff and really good at calming people down don't be shy to ask for a sedative if you need it! I wish you all the best for tomorrow 😊 I'll be wishing you a speedy recovery.

    Hi Susan ... I had my GB removed in April this year.  Apart from the post op discomfort for a short while I don't regret having my GB removed, although I am one of those people who have to take immodium most days.  The pain of a gallstone attack is worse than having a baby in my opinion - I felt as though I was dying.   I am fairly careful with what I eat - for instance I only have coconut oil as a fat.

    On the day of your op things will happen quite quickly.  Once in theatre I found the staff there incredibly friendly - I nearly forgot I was about to have an op; they're very clever!  I was out for the count before I knew then when I woke I was in the care of a nurse who shortly afterwards took me to the ward for the day.   I couldn't eat anything, except a little nibble, as I felt really sick, but that was due to the op.  I went home that evening and rested.   

    Sending you best wishes for Monday (you'll be fine).  Let us know how you got on.

    I had my gallbladder removed in April.

    It does take time to settle down from this operation but I have no regrets at all.

    Good luck for today

    Take care and keep in touch

    Praying for you

    Hi! I got my gb removed last june and no regrets for removing them. Instead, In my opinion. it helps me to be more knowledgeable about my health and how to be healthy, avoiding not so nutritious foods.

    Well of course, after surgery you're body and food diet will adjust. But, Don't worry! ^^ You'll be healthy after that. though it'll take sometime to get back on track. smile 

    Take Care of your Health
