My operation date finally arrived today. You wait for it and then when it comes the emotions kick in. Should be used to them by now. So hopefully at the end of the month my gallbladder will be gone and all being well will feel better.

    You will feel better.  smile 

    the next day I felt better .. Yes I had the gas pains and healing aches but paracetamol kept that at bay...

    but no nausea ... No agonising pain... Just healing pains positive pain. 

    When I asked my surgeon do we see the stones he said you wouldn't want to there brown and smelly ... Your body will be glad to be shot of them. 

    Think that's why your energy comes back about 6 weeks after operation .. 

    No rotten smelly gallstones stagnating in you ..smile phew

      Hi sally and wish you a good operation but may you explain why you did not apply to remove the gallstones instead of gallbladder? as you may know, you have to follwo a serious fat diet after Cholecystectomy??!!

      Totally understand how you feel, but at least you are looking at the positive, the pain will be gone. Child birth is a fiddle compared to gallstones and all they entail.

      Blood pressure can go up through stress, they would not operate if any worries. Good luck to you also.
