    The worst part is pre-op sitting in the waiting area for them to bring you in. Before you know it you will be waking up in post op and although sore, feeling much better. Day 2 will be the worst for pain and swelling so expect that and there will be no unpleasant surprises.

    Hi Dianne .... I had my gallbladder out early last month and felt exactly how you are now.   I too had to be at the hospital early where you go through several "hoops" i.e., your details are taken, then you chat with the anethatist and before you know it you're in Theatre.  I felt fortunate indeed - the team that day were all good friends and chatted cheerily with one another and me - I could have been at someones coffee morning!  Then before I knew it I was "out for the count" - next thing I knew I was in recovery and it was all done and dusted.   You'll be fine Dianne ..... sending you healing thoughts.

    Why are you getting yours out? I had mine out in March after being sick for a year!! Its been three month and I still have sickness and pain and D. Is it stones or Disseased? I wish I would have gone on Youtube and looked into Gallblader Flush.. Dr Hyda Clark.. Search it on youtube.

      I dont think the surgeon knows until he gets inside how your gall bladder is mine was very badly deseased and only just got it in time, but the fact that you have stones and are in a great deal of pain is enough for some surgeons to go ahead and operate

      I had stones in the gall bladder and also in the bile duct which had to be removed which is called ERCP they removed seven out of it then a week later I had my gall bladder op, you just can't tell really I just knew I was in horrendous pain that was three years ago and I now suffer from Bile Salt Malabsorption which I wouldn't wish on my worse enemy xxx

      I was given Questran when the D started but I just couldn't swallow it! it made me retch then I was given something else but I can't remember the name of it that was like trying to swallow sand! absolutely dreadful! then I joined a group and was told to ask my doc for Colesevelam tablets 650mg which I did and was given them (Not everyone can get them it's like a postcode lottery with them)  and it was like a miracle they worked so well I went for days without visiting a loo! that lasted for about 6 months then I got really bad D again so I was told to take two tablets a day and now I am on four a day and up to 8 imodium a day(on a bad day) if you are taking a bile binder tjewell try taking it at bedtime that might stop the morning sickness love xxxx

      Well done tazz.

      I had mine out a couple of weeks ago.

      Mine has just started getting itchy where the scar is.

      Dressing has come off this morning, that feels great.

      Take care and keep in touch

      Love Sarah xxx
