I am having my gallbladder removed in a week and I am really nervous about being in hospital as it is my first ever operation.
The idea of pain doesn't bother me as such, I know that side of it will be well looked after by the hospital.
I just have a few things that are more logistical in nature that are causing me to get worried because its stuff thats not really mentioned in any of the paperwork.
1. For example, say I'm back in the room and its a couple of hours after surgery(I'm lucky enough to have a private room for overnight stay) and I need to pee. Will I just be able to get up by myself and do my business or will I need help from a nurse to walk?
2. The hospital has told me to bring comfortable clothes & fresh underwear to wear overnight. How will I go getting changed by myself? again am I going to need help?
3. I know I'm going to be on a low fat diet for a while. But does it actually hurt to eat the first couple of meals in hospital? or is it ok?
If anyone could help me with these specific questions it would be greatly appreciated.
