I wanted to let some people on here know that today is my third day after laparoscopic gallbladder surgery it was done on Oct 18 2016 and today is Oct 21. Everything feels pretty good. I feel way better today, was able to get good sleep. I take Norcos and I sleep on my back with some pillows behind me. Okay, going back to the beginning, I was about 7 months prego and I found out i had multiple Gallstone after having a ultra sound done because I had gone to the hospital for feeling the most devastating pain I had ever felt. I thought I was going into labor, the funny part is that as soon as I got to the hospital and they laid me down on the bed the pain Disappeared! I was like wtf just happened? Anyways, a few weeks later, I had an ultrasound to see what that pain was because my doctor said it might be Gallstones and sure enough, it was. So, back to what i was saying. Lol! The reason why im even on here is because I have read nothing but bad things about having your gallbladder removed, that's actually one of the reasons I took so long to have mine removed. But to tell you the truth so far so good! The first two days i was in pain, but it was tolerable. I had a lot of water because I was very thirsty. I also had chicken soup. I have read that people feel a little nauseous after the Surgery, but not me. I actually felt hungry I wanted to eat a lot but I was scared I didn't know how my stomach would react being that my stomach was probably still in shock after just having surgery so I just ate a little bit. The soup did have pieces of chicken and vegetables I ate those too. Afterwards, I started to feel like I had to burp so I would pat my own back and I would burp sounds Weird but believe me it helps . It hurt but as soon as I burped i felt a relief in my stomach. You will feel bloated the first couple of days.But like I said today is my third day and my stomach is not bloated any more. I'm actually sitting down right now and I have absolutely no pain. I only feel pain if I get up fast so I try not to. I take my time, and I have absolutely no pain, I feel good I actually had some ice cream today just a little bit just to give it a try I wanted to see if it would give me diarrhea due to the fact that i haven't pooped in 3 days. I had a little coffee too. I had it the 1st and the 2nd day, it didn't bother My stomach at all, but today after having some coffee, chicken soup and a little bit of ice cream I felt My stomach grumbling. So I went to the restroom and I pooped a little bit. It didn't hurt or nothing it wasn't hard it was in soft it was just normal. Also, as of today I stop taking the pain meds. I will keep everyone updated on what I eat and how I feel. If you have any questions feel free to ask anything.
