One morning in April I woke with severe pain. Like so many others I thought Heart Attack!
After several tests Gall stones was diagnosed, as I'm self employed I put off any thoughts of surgery.
My cousin suggested I turn vegan, which while not for everyone really helped. I was back running and had no sever pain or the daily back pain I was experiencing.
A trip to Italy and cheesey oily food followed as did a couple of bad attacks.
I couldn't live life with that kind of pain hanging over me.
I booked in a consultation and had sugery 19th December. Private hospital via the NHS.
Walked through the door at midday and back in the car at 7pm on my way home.
I have to say the whole experience was a breeze. Felt quite well but guess it was the medication.
Day 2 and I'm up and about but accepting all the tablets they gave me. Paracetamol, ibuprofen and codine.
I think the worst pain is the CO2 gas left in my body. Sholder pain and discomfort.
Now that the surgical medications have worn off I have what I would describe as stitch on my right side. Tummy seems ok just a bit sore at times.
I'm not sure the medication is strong enough but will see how the next few days go.
I would be interested In knowing what medication others have used and how recovery has gone.
