    Same thing with me but I am demanding a CT SCAN. I am tired of the pain. If it is adhesions they can use laser and get them out. I hope that is what I have.because it is simple to get rid of adhesions.

      tracy, the pain is like a cramp where my gb was and almost puts me on my knees! It hits certain ways I move or eat certain foods.I take Hydromorphone which is dilaudin. .2 is my mg. It does help when I have these attacks. When I find out what this pain is I will let you know.

    It takes time to heal up. The belly button keyhole is the deepest one. If your work means lifting and moving heavy stuff then you will keep hurting.

    It could be a stone they didn't catch or scar tissue that is causing you the issues. Have it checked out. Bett to have it checked out then cause more trouble.

    I had my surgery in Nov.

    Hopefully your boss will understand. Good luck and drink lots of water. Use an ice pack when you can

      I get pain once in awhile, espically if I over do it and move heavy furniture.

      I don't know how they check for scar tissue, I saw that some one else ended up with it. They had a scan or x ray done I believe.

      Stick to the low fat diet. Espically if you are still having problems. I'm so sick of water but it helps a lot.

      I'm a walker so on sunny days in Oregon I love to walk but I did it once to soon and added a week to recover, the pain got worse. But then I walked 2 1/2 hours to kill time for my daughter had a party to go to, so we walked around some stores and the pain got bad again. Lucky for me it stopped hurting by Christmas. I had a cheese burger and pizza in one day, not a good idea. I was up most of the night in pain, I got an ice pack and slept with it.

      I hope you get answers real soon. I would ask for a scan. But I'm not sure how they check for loose stones or scar tissue.
