Extreme nausea following gall bladder removal

Posted , 4 users are following.


I had my GB removed on 9th June. I also had gastroscopy and x ray at same time and everything reported clear. Had previously had ultrasound and CT scan during diagnosis problem. Operation had no complications so why do I feel so sick all the time.? Does anyone know if this is a normal response.? Doesn't seem to matter what I eat or drink it is the same and is rally getting me down. Can't sleep much either. Any suggestions very welcome. :o(

    I had the same thing, my Doctor prescribed PMS-Metoclopramide 10mg. It helps with the nausea.

    Try eating popsicles too, they work wonders for me.

    From what I hear, it takes a good 6 weeks to even start to feel better. But then again, still waiting for my surgery so let you know how I feel after.

    feel better soon Lizzy

How things change in a very short time. I was only told recovery could be 6-8weeks IF he couldn't do keyhole and it sent to full open surgery

    Could also still be due to anaesthetic still being in your system?
