Hi guys answer gals just want to pick the brains of people here who have had their gallbladders removed. I appreciate it is different for everyone but! I had my gallbladder out Thursday. I know it's not long. Thursday I had quite a bit of pain under my ribs and round my back. It was just like when I had a stone stuck when I came round from anesthetic. I was told that was normal. That sort of eased of through yesterday but I'm still getting intermittent pain there, catching me short of breath at times.
I didn't sleep well at all last night. Felt like my stomach was full of pressure but I'm finding it almost impossible to pass wind and I haven't had a bowel movement at all yet. I'm managing to eat little and often but feel full very quick. To be expected. But this morning my back across the middle feels so painful like a horse had kicked me and my stomach feels like everything has been rinsed round in a machine. The trapped wind and sluggish bowels are awful! I'm drinking lots of water, eating little and often, plenty of fibre and low fat. I have wind settlers but they aren't doing much. I can move around perfectly fine but when I sit my stomach is growling like mad and painful pressure. Is there anything else I can try? Is this normal? As the day has gone on today I'm feeling more tired and washed out than I did yesterday but I think it's my bowels. Any advice would be gratefully recieved. Even if it's a kick up the bum to tell me this is normal and will pass soon!
