    Hi miqui97287!

    I, too, had my gallbladder removed September 16. I had mine removed laposcopic. Did you? I only have the surgical tape on mine so I have no clue what's under mine. I'm afraid to take them off. I go to the surgeon in Monday. I bet there may be a little blood from the holes of the staples. Maybe that is what you are seeing. Especially since they put dressing on it. I know it might seem scary but I am sure it's okay. How are you feeling? I am healing okay I guess. I have been getting my appetite back. Sometimes I'm hungry and other times not. I'm definitely not sleeping. I have so much anxiety over being sick for four months before and then this surgery. I thought I'd be running around by now. I had severe nausea as my only symptom. I thought I was dying. I am just now getting over the nausea. Sometimes I feel like I'm gonna be sick forever. I'm being very impatient. I'm courious to find out how you feel. Hope you feel wonderful!

    Hey there

    Did u have open surgery or keyhole? I had keyhole done and I had paper stitches over my wounds and was told to take my paper stitches off after 5 days of my op and when I done this I noticed I have stitches and glue, if in any doubt speak to the hosp or the surgeon but more than likely u would get a bit if bleeding if u had ur staples removed tho tbh. Hope ur recovering well I had mines done on the 14th Sept and I'm still signed off work for another week or 2 as I have a long walk to get to work and not fit enough for that just yet but getting out a bit more now tho :-)

      Yeah u will b in pain for longer due to u having a bigger wound,I'm glad u went up to the hospital and got checked and have been given antibiotics, I'm sure that will stop any further infections, I had a rough time after my op and ended up having to stay in hosp for 5 days, but getting better each day still get sore and tired really easy but it will get easier, just ur recovery will b longer after ur type of surgery continue to get up and about but just don't over do it and have plenty rest in between x
