Had my gallbladder removed for one week now

Posted , 5 users are following.

I was in a lot of pain so last Friday jan 27th i had my gallbladder removed. I was in so much pain and i was so sick before i went. The first day i was hurting so bad but got thro the first night sleeping in my chair. I have been doing so for the last week. My pain level feels a lot better. The first two days i had that bad gas feeling but u have to move around a lot in order for it to go away. Its been a full week now and i get to take off my bandage off tomorrow and im waiting to see whats in store for me. I still have a sharp pain when i need to yawn or take a deep breathe but from what ive read its normal. But i have to say its painful. Hope it goes away! And im getting my energy better and i hope all pain is gone soon. But the first couple of days i thought i was dying. Lol. Im hopeful and i feel the more i make myself move around its not as painful. My next check up is the 14th and im feeling ill get a thumbs up. Hope all others have a good go about as i have. And i hope knock on wood nothing goes bad!

    I had the pain on deep breathes and yawning too. It took a good 2 weeks to go away - got better every day though! Stretching that area seemed to help for me.

      That's what my daughter says and that it doesn't go away it's just there all the time.

      I'm praying it starts to settle down she has had 8 procedures since September & she just wanted it all over once they found it to be the gallbladder.

      Then comes obviously recovery time & with all the dietary changes you are just not feeling great straight after bless you all, I can't imagine how you all feel watching her is awful but we are not the Ines in pain.
