Will yesterdat turned out to be a long day. Check in time 8:45. Surgery at 10:45 a.m. but got delayed until 1:45 p.m. pacific time. Surgery went fine. Going under was the best sleep I have had for years. I didn't get sick. Got home at 8 p.m. My daughter came down with a bug yesterday but we thought it was just allergies until she felt real sick today, so we kept her from school. Didn't get much sleep last night, the bed at the hospital made my back hurt a lot and gave me knots. I'm on a low fat diet for awhile. When I'm better then we will celebrate my birthday which is today. Great gift surgery. Any questions just ask. I'm sore but not sick to my stomache.

,. Glad its over.

      I was nervous about going under too Tammi but it was so easy. Waking up feels weird like you are in a daze dream. I'm doing ok. Still sore but doing better. I'm eating low fat foods and skim milk. I could only eat jello for the first few days. Let me know how it went.

      Drink lots of water and no bending. No lifting. Try jello for awhile before you try solids. Get a lot of rest. Trust me you won't be able to sleep on your sides. I had to sleep in my chair a few nights because I would try turning over in bed. Let me know if you have any questions? Glad it went well. Keep me updated on how you are doing. Welcome to the no gall bladder club.

      Hi Tammi. Glad to hear you are eating. I have had small gasssy but not like I used to have. I had my surgery Nov. 11 and went number two by the 15. Doctor gave me stool softners plus I take miralax daily. I did have a few days were I didn't go number two. I found peeing was hard the first few days. I'm doing better. Just take advil 800 three times the day now. I only take the major pain killer at bedtime and when i m hurting really bad. I have gotten out of the house a few times but always came home sore. Keep me updated. Sorry I didn't send a message sooner.
