I had my gallbladder removed yesterday, I know it's early days and I am still dosed up on pain killers but I feel sooo much better already. I won't lie I woke up after the op feeling like I had been run over by a bus, but that went quickly and I was home by tea time. I ate with no sickness and slept very well. It was not as bad as I had expected.

    I had my gallbladder removed on Monday with an added procedure of enlarged cystic ovary and swollen felopian tube that I didn't even know I still had. Feeling good over all still on some pain meds, eating soft things and drinking a lot of juice. Wish I knew other choices to eat this is getting boring. I love food, gonna be hard to learn new ways of eating. Any ideas???

      After a year I was eating everything I used to eat, in fact the only problems I had were due to an acid stomach, which I get if I eat too little fat/oil however I've now found a daily portion of yoghurt helps sort it out and I can't eat too much bread odd because toasted it's fine.

      Hi Auntbee, I also had my Gallbladder removed on Monday and am feeling fine the only thing I've noticed is every time I eat something I want to go to the toilet within minutes. Hope this will settle down soon.

      Chicken has always been OK

      Also Lamb and Gammon but be very careful to cut the excess fat off.

      It is just a question of trial and error really Jane.

      Have you got a date for your op yet?

      Hope everything goes OK

      Take care and keep in touch

      Thanks for your reply Sarah smile I heard this week my op is the 25th |August so a while yet. I really am struggling with eating . As I said the only things I can eat are really vegetables and porridge and rice. If i have the slightest bit of fat and im talking  about 100mls soya milk which has 1 gram of fat in it. I know it and the nagging discomfort starts. I found meat really triggers it too even chicken. I am so hoping to be able to eat a bit more when had the op. I dont eat a lot of fat normally so being low fat wont be a prob but fat free is a nightmare.

      Yes it is almost impossible to be completely fat free.

      Hope you manage to get back to eating something a bit more interesting when you have had gallbladder out.

      Praying for you

      Love Sarah xx

    3 days after my op and I'm feeling great. Even with the pain from the operation, I feel better than I have in years, apparently I look better to. A bit of constipation a little shoulder ache left and not a great appetite but otherwise I am up and about, had a shower and got dressed. Taking it easy still but can't tell you how great it feels to not have this hanging over me.  I feel I can finally move one.

    I am still doing well. Yesterday I had quite a busy day and got quite tired, but I am still progressing well.  I unlike most people seem to have constipation, I was expecting it to go the other way, so am feeling a little bit bloated. I am starting to get a bit bored and want to do more, but am so happy I had the blasted thing out,  the discomfort from the op and the constipation are nothing compared to that constant nagging pain I used to get.  I am also able to get some very good night sleeps, my OH can't believe it as for as long as we can remember, I haven't been able to get comfortable at night.
