i ended up having my gallbladder removed around the end of september. i had no gallstones, my gallbaldder just wasnt working. i think he said it was 10% or under. anyways, it was about a month of constant nausea every day before i could have my gallbladder removed. i was told i would feel brand new afterwards. that was a lie. a few weeks after my surgery i was still nauseous. they took my off omeprazole and that did help. i was put on otc meds for my heartburn.
now ever since then i am still nauseous off and on. i can go weeks of being ok, then for a few days to a week i get nauseous again. not as bad as before surgery, but still nauseous. i dont have the pain as before i had it removed though, just feel sick to my stomach. i have never thrown up because of it, and when i feel this way i dont really have much of an apatite. also i get sort of lightheaded when i feel this way but my dr said it could be because of the nausea i feel this way.
my doctor have told me that i shouldnt feel this way. he says i should be better and if i continue to feel nauseous off and on i will have to go to a gi dr and have an endoscopy. i really hate to do that but if i have to i will.
im just wondering if anyone else has experienced this and if so, how long does it last? im tired of feeling this way and im just wondering cause i thought i read before some people take 6 months to a whole year to go back to normal. if someone has went through this can you please tell me your story and how long it lasted. i get nervous about thinking something else might be wrong with me.
off topic a little, i had it laprescopic, spelling might be off on that, but the incision they made in the middle of my stomach that is a bit bigger than the rest kinda went into overdrive on the healing and it is a thick pink scar. the other 3 have faded a bit but that one is slightly raised, feels kinda bubbly, like a welp, welt, whatever u call it. anyone else have this? how long will it take to fade? my dr tells me it should start fading after 6-8 months, but so far nothing.
