I am one of the lucky ones who have had my op one month ago. The relief from pain after eating was great. However I do find my stomach is distended and I have a lot of wind which is uncomfortable at night.I bled an awful lot during the op so have gauze inserted in the wound. The consutant was very surprised at this as I was not on warfarin or similar. However I had been taking numerous alternative medicines in an effort to reduce my pain levels. Surgeon say some of these may have similar effect to warfarin so it's worth bearing in mind if you are similarly tempted by all the online claims to combat gall stone pain in this way.Does anyone know if the distended stomach is something I just have to live with? I can hardly wear my bra for more than a few hours. Similarly my jeans.I had lost well over a stone in weight but cannot buy fitting clothes because of this.
Dont Be put off getting the op but please be aware of these considerations. It great to have a coffee pain free as well other things. As I know it's early days I'm hoping these problems will pass. Meanwhile at age 72, I look at least 6 months pregnant !!
