Had my gallbladder out , have some questions , hope you can help.

Posted , 6 users are following.

I had my gallbladder taken out last Wednesday, it was done Davinnci which is easier than the other ways , with faster recovery time. But this week I hurt at the top of my belly button even when I bend over, and have some constipation. I really dont know what to eat, they told me to eat low-fat diet. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    To get rid of constipation i recommend a sea water flush or Mag07.  Sea Water Flush

    ( 2 -4 times a week ) 16 ozs water 1 - 2 tablespoons of  sea salt, in the morning

    on an empty stomach. You will keep drinking 1 to 3 quarts more of water after that.

    Also, you will need to be near a bathroom as the cleanse will take around

    75 ­ 90 mins to be complete

      goldwingman! WOW! You are a true survivor of heartache and I am so impressed with people that survive all that you have. Life is hard for all of us, but we can always find one that has lost more than we have. You are an inspiration. You have been through a lot, but you are not defeated and that is good. God is good and he promised to never leave us and he has not left you. You are in my prayers. Take care!

      I am happy you are not alone! I assume you have to have constant pain medication. I hate you have so much pain. Yes, keeping busy and doing for others is a great way to forget self and the problems you face. you keep up the good work and you will be blessed! Have a great day as possible.

    Hi Tammy 

    my suggestion don't bend over just cos your op was keyhole doesn't mean your not full of stitches. Inside . The little puncture wounds are wounds and they are cut through your muscle . You will ache and be weak for 6 weeks . You will feel really energy less in another couple of weeks as your body heals then . Yippee you'll recover. be sensible you don't want complications by overdoing it R and r .
