I went in yesterday for my GB op and its now gone!!! Its been a long 6 month wait but oh so worth the wait. Everything went so smoothly. The staff really know how to make you feel at ease. I had been told pre op that I only had 1 single large stone and no inflammation. Well guess what? I large stone and lots of smaller ones. Also there was a lot of inflammtion all round the gallbladder so it needed to come out No wonder I could only eat veg and porridge! I could have come home yesterday evening but because I felt a bit nauseaus they suggested I stayed in overnight. The nausea soon settled. I have just got home. Im feeling very tired but then I have ME as well so thats not all due to the GB. I have been so surprised at how little wound pain I have got. The worst was this morning with the shoulder pain and in my side but this is due to the gas they pump you with. Its not excruciating but just comes on and off with me its a bit like stitch like I had as a child. But I walked about as much as poss and it does help. I even had half a baked potato and some ham for lunch. I havent been able to tolerate meat at all. Non of that nagging pain afterwards ether Mind you I trimmed off any fat! cant sleep on my side but slept inclined and on my back last night which is something I couldnt do before the op. I coudnt tolerate any pressure on my back. I will keep you updated as I progress as I found this site has helped me so much to know what to expect. So please try dont worry if you have yours op coming up for me it has been a lot less painful than I thought, and its so nice to be rid of that constant nagging pain.
