Drainage after Gallbladder Surgery

Posted , 4 users are following.

Just had my gallbladder removed through keyhole surgery this past thursday July 5. Thought I would be in more pain but I feel pretty good. I had a jp drain that is rather annoying but has been working. Tonight I have been leaking through my bandages and into my shirt. No foul smell just have to change bandage multiple times. I am starting to worry. Has anyone else experienced moderate to heavy drainage? Dont want to make a unnecessary trip up ER.

      hi my friend , long time !

      how are you doing now ?

      me unfortunately I still have upper right quadrant pain intermittently throughout the day every day ,

      ‘and my stool colour has sadly not returned to normal , still tan camel coloured.

      the nhs has discharged me as bloods are normal and simply say they are at an end and have no answers ?

      so that’s my lot !

      nice ah !

      so I carry on living with constant worry for my future ?

      hey what else is their to do haha but carry on.

      hope your story is more successful than mine old friend.
