I know it's only been 5 days, but based on what my surgeon told me, I thought I would feel immediately relief from the gall stone pain once the gall bladder was removed. I actually feel worse than before the surgery. No fever or vomiting, but have a terrible pain in my gut that feels like gas pain, and even though I do expel gas there is no relief. Reading the posts here, I am now worried that it is going to take a very long time before things get better, if ever. I am trying to eat small meals, and avoiding all the fatty and fried foods, but it seems like it doesn't matter what I eat...pain always follows. I go back to the surgeon next Monday for my post-op follow-up, but actually don't know if he is going to have any real concrete recommendations as to what I should do. Does anything think that I need to go to a gastrointerologist for a consult? Thank you.
