I've been doing really good lately. I got my gallbladder out two weeks ago. Ive recently been really nauseous. I've also gotten really tired but idk if it's my pills. I didn't take them today or yesterday and I've been tired. Not tired enough to work through it. I've been able to eat. I have energy throughout the day. What's going on?

    Alyssa,

    It's still early days for you.  Having your gallbladder out is major surgery, regardless of how small the external incisions are. Your externals will heal in 4-6 weeks, your internal may take up to 8 weeks.

    Your body has to adjust to the lack of the gallbladder and heal.  That's why you're tired.  Stop trying to work through it and let your body heal as it needs to.  

    Best of luck1

      Hi Alyssa,

      Your organs are all within your abdomen, including your ovaries and fallopian tubes. They're all grouped together.  So you might be having pain from ovulation, too.

      However, it you're having pain it''s best to go see your doctor.  No one on this site can diagnose an illness.  We can offer comfort, experience and practical support...

      Take care!  Please continue to let me know how you get on!

      Hi alyssa, there are some reports that link female hormones with gallbladder pain especially before your period. I wouldn't be surprised as it is generally women rather than men that have this problem and to be honest I had really bad symptoms around the same time of my period so I don't doubt the link. But any new pain you probably want to go and see your doctor just to be sure. 

      2 weeks is still early days alyssa, don't rush yourself and take it easy. We all heal at different speeds. I'm still very tired at 5 weeks post op. You need lots of rest as Lynda said it is major surgery and I think this is something that we forget. 

      Take care and let us know how you get on. x

      Hi Lynda, did you not get my message, I sent you one about 2 hours ago!

      No, I haven't heard from Carol at all. I'm really worried as her daughter was so poorly I hope things haven't got worse.

      I would've thought though that if the botox injection had worked she would've told us. I know it is a risky procedure though.

      I'm not doing so good, I'm waiting to get an appointment to see the gastro again and my gp has referred me to the pain clinic too so its just a waiting game at the moment.

      How are you?

      xx

      HI, Katherine,

      Thanks for replying.  My husband and I have been doing chores this afternoon and got back from running an errand, so I haven't been around.  

      Don't be concerned about me, I'm doing just as well as I can be doing, which is saying something.xxx

      I'm sorry to learn that you aren't doing well.  It's certainly good of you to be helping others while you are going through so much yourself!  

      Does anything help you, now? Being in constant pain is the worst!

      To be honest Lynda it takes my mind off of my own problems.

      Its lovely weather over here in the UK at the moment and I love my garden so I've been pottering and sowing a few flower and vegetable seeds. Its a pleasant  distraction to create something.

      I'll let you know as soon as I hear from Carol.

      I'll speak to you again soon, its late here now,  take care Lynda xx
