    I had my gb removed in 2015 and still now I have days where I experience pains similar to those before my op. The operation itself does take time to settle - you have to be gentle with yourself and patient as well. For instance, for well over a year after my op, I had stitch like pain in my side and I was unable to lie on that side in bed (right side). But then one day you realise the various issues you sometimes get post op are becoming less and less.

    It will settle down - you've literally only just had your op so go with it; obviously if your symptoms become too much for you then go straight to your GP.

    Best wishes to you.

    HI Pete, its very similar to the symptoms i went through last July when i had my Gallbladder operation. you need plenty of rest, mild headaches, the gas after the operation caused gas to be stored in the body. I used activated Charcoal capsuls brilliant for absorbing the gas. buy them in any health food shop.

    I found little meals easer to take and still do, My lifestyle at the moment is stressful and makes things more trouble some for me.

    If things get any more difficult for anything your insure see the doctor as well, feeling sick is perfectly normal takes time for the stomach to settle. take care anything else i can advise let me know kind regards JO

      joanne, thanks for taking the time out of your day to reply to me. its just im afraid to eat cause it hurts. im constantly having to go to the bathroom to let it out. sometimes i feel like i cannot breathe, along with anxiety. i still dont have a clue on what i can and can't eat. The passed few days ive been eating but it just the pooping, body feeling weird, etc. some days i go a day without eating cause everytime i eat something an hour later my shoulder/back hurts this is so stressful 😭
