I've been on and off this website over the past few months because I feel like reading about everyone's horror stories makes me even more worried that I will never fully heal from my gallbladder removal surgery. Since my surgery, I still haven't felt well. I only eat very simple things (like rice, chicken, bread, etc). Trust me, I've done all the research, my diet is low in fat and very plain. I know that if I were to eat anything high in fat I'd die from indigestion because I am having a hard time digesting insanely plain meals. I wanna know if there's anyone out there that felt indigestion for a few months or a year after surgery and then got better. I'm actually on an antidepressant right now to help aid in my stomach pain. I think it's helping but I'm not sure because I was given a lower dosage than most people because my weight is way too low. I have a hard time gaining because eating doesn't feel good at all. I have painful diarrhea a couple times a week but indigestion (bloating, gas and sometimes nausea) is an all day, everyday feeling. I don't regret getting my gallbladder out because it was on its way to calcifying and I was extremely nauseous. However, it's very discouraging when I know a lot of people personally who have had this surgery and were back to normal a week later. Is it really possible for it to take my body a year to get back to normal while some people feel great a week after their surgery? That just seems so crazy to me. Please someone give me some hope that it gets better.
