Hi guys its day 2 after my gallbladder operation and I'm feeling so much better. Not needing as much pain relief and a bit more mobile. Still quite windy though and not much of an appetite but that's not such a bad thing. I had 3 stones the largest was bigger than a £2 coin so glad they've gone!

    Hi freestork

    so glad you are feeling much better now that your gall bladder is gone.I wish I could say the same,but my surgeon says although I have gall stones my pain is comming from my back just because I have lower back problems,so no op for me,got to wait for MRI scan don't know how long this is going to take.he says you can live with gall stones without any pain.i feel a bit let down as even if he is right about my gall stones,I feel they could still give me pain later on but I still believe my pain is being caused by my gs.i feel sick,don't want to eat,get really hot and sweaty and the pain is unbearable at times.sorry I only meant to say how glad I am that things have gone so well for you

    Its great to hear when things go right for someone

    all the best

      Thanks Pat, I had gallstones for 6 years and had no pain at all I went to GP over thinning hair as there thyroid history in my family had tests which showed liver inflammation so went for ultrasound which again showed gallstones quite large in size it was only after the scan the pain started GP seemed to think they moved during the scan I had a lot of lower back pain which has now stopped you should be more vocal with GP and push for referral hope you feel better soon

      hi freestork

      thanks for you reply,the pain is always made worse by the doctor feeling around my side.I know stones can move so that is why i feel let down also my employer has mention about the time I have had off work all I could tell them was I was under my doctor for it.I think I will make another appointment to see my doctor but he wasn't very sure that it was my gs.

      glad to hear you are getting better

      take care and keep in touch

    Glad to hear you are doing well. I'm at 7 days post op and other than a little itching at the incision sites and tiredness by midday I am pretty much all better. Still not lifting anything too heavy as i dont want to aggravate my torso but im back to my regular daily routine. Hoping for a speedy recovery.
