I’ve posted in this group before and it’s been a while since I’ve been on. So I apologize to the ones I never replied back to on my last post!!
I was diagnosed with biliary dyskinesia back in November, my ejection fraction was at 9%. I had my gallbladder removed yesterday (26th) laparoscopically, no complications or anything. Thank God. I was extremely scared since it was my first surgical procedure with general anesthesia.
After surgery I was okay, didn’t feel bad just super duper tired. Today however was definitely a worse day! I’m having tons of pain in my belly button, which is where my gallbladder was removed from and it still bleeds a little bit. Plus there’s a humongous bruise right below my belly button. It hurts to get up and down, laugh, sneeze, cough, etc . I was given Percocet 10s and they do nothing for my pain, unfortunately. I’m using ice packs as well.
Tonight when I went to lay down I got a sharp pain by my right shoulder and under my right rib that wrapped around to my back. It actually hurt to breathe for a minute. Didn’t happen at all during the day just now when i went to lay down. Would that be the gas that was pumped into my abdomen?
Also, is the bleeding normal? They gave me dissolving bandaids so I can see my incisions but not the one in my belly button - which is the only one that has bleed some. But as I mentioned before it’s not a lot just some.
