Hi there, i had my gall bladder removed last tuesday and am recovering well. I have my gall stones sitting in a pot on the side loads of little ones and one huge one the size of a big grape !!!! no wonder i was in such agony!! i am wondering if anyone else feels the same as me afterwards.... i keep on getting like a cramping feeleng at the top of my stomach which comes in waves and sometimes when its there i really feel that i could get an upset tummy although i don't..... very strange, i hope this feeling goes away soon !!! i am having the staples out on friday which i am looking forward to.The worst bit for me was the uncomfortable feeling from the gas they put in to your tummy all i can say is its VERY painful but soon goes off.

Thanks for reading, christina xx

    Hi Christie

    Just wondered how you are now some weeks after your op - I am due to go in for surgery next thursday and feel very nervous after reading how so many people still have pain afterwards also problems with running to the loo complete opposite of comstipation. Would appreciate your views. thanks kitty
