    Hi

    I’m 3wks op and I am actually feeling much better. Still feel very little of pains on side. But comes on slightly more when I over do things vacuum clean . Lost about 5 pounds stomach has gone down quite a bit and some muscle control hopefully getting back to gym this weekend. Overall no real issues

    Three months post op and feel lots better. Eating sensibly and taking supplements. A bit of nausea in the morning but no more pain. No major issues so far. Good luck with your surgery.

    I had surgery 12 days ago. Am still on low fat diet. Stopped taking pain killers after 1week. Ache a bit when I walk. Feel a lot better than I thought I would.

    Hi Kitschqueen:. I am in Canada. My experience after gall bladder surgery was a bit painfull.. I went into hospital at 5:45 am. My surgery was scheduled at 7:45. I was only in surgery for an hour. I had the larascopic surgery done. I was upstairs in the day surgery ward for about 6 hours. I woke up at 2 pm. Had a drink and something to eat. They wanted me to walk around once I had woken right up. I was in and out that day. I had some discomfort. I feel better and it's a year later I still get gas and bloating. Just watch the stress and the greasey fatty foods and spicy and acidy foods for awhile. Take care
