Hi is there anyone out there that suffers from nausea and pain almost 4 weeks after gallbladder operation. Every time I eat anything i get pain in site of operation. And tired all the time no energy
Thank you ! I will do my best. I’m hoping to ease back into work a few half days next week or the week after. I don’t have approval from my boss yet. I’m still waiting on that before I know. I’ll do my best to stay in contact.

This gentleman is younger than I, but was born and raised here in our small town and rural county. He went to college and Med school, graduated and came back home to work in our area with the primary care practice I was just with before switching. He got tired of having to see a patient very 15 mins or “x” number of patients per day as required by the facility, so he opened his own practice. This way, he controls everything. I like it and wished I had followed him when he first left the other practice to go out on his own. I’m hoping these good days continue to outnumber the bad. I’ve been a little sore and achy today, but I’m not sure if it’s where I’m trying to be more active than I have been or if it’s this cold front / thunderstorms that are coming towards us. It’s been 80 here today in NC and this front is getting ready to change that.
KUDOS and "a thank you" to your returning Dr. I wish there were more like him/her. I imagine it can be unfulfilling to be on a restricted time schedule when you are attempting to do quality work on what can affect the quality of life and satisfaction of your patients.
I returned to a Dr I had previously seen…loved her, and she really cared. Shortly after, her 40+ year old son committed suicide and she retired!! I am back with someone new who could give a rip!!! Am desperately ill…in the last 5 months I have lost between 45 and 50 pounds. Cannot get anyone to admit me somewhere for extensive testing. We live in a very rural area, so that makes it difficult. The small local hospital does x-rays, CT Scans, HIDA Scans, etc…but no extensive testing beyond that!! Lately, I have been losing about 1/2 pound a day. Was to be scheduled for a colonoscopy, but my insurance denied it because the hospital (where the Specialist who IS In Network does them) is not in network. I really feel I don't have much longer…but have no idea what to do!!! Am praying for the Lord to take me home…I'm that desperate. Months of nausea and abdominal pain when I try to eat. Anti-nausea meds just make it worse!! Drs just try one med after another with me!! Wanted o go to Cleveland Clinic but the Dr won't give a referral until after I have the colonoscopy! If you are reading this and are a praying person, please pray for me!!!
I am a firm believer in God and I will absolutely pray for you !!! As a matter of fact, the doctor I went back to, is also a Christian man along with his wife and raises their family as such. I will pray that God will intervene and you will have guidance to find a doctor to help you and get the help you need and deserve ! Please keep us posted. I’ll keep checking back. I want to help others bc I know how badly I felt for 10 full weeks.
Thank you and God bless you!!! I know God's timing is perfect, but it sure is hard not to question!!
@sciograndma Prayers are with you. I hope you will be able to get the referral to Cleveland Clinic and get this problem resolved. I presume you are not on Medicare, because on Medicare you do not need a referral. That can really be a blessing.
Please keep us updated.
At a point where I wish Medicare was all I had! I took a Medicare Advantage plan, thinking I was doing the right thig. Guess not. Had just figured I couldn't afford the 20% that Medicare doesn't cover.
@sciograndma I'm sorry that things are not covered as well for you, I have heard that the Medicare Advantage plans are not as good as they sound. I have regular Medicare and a supplement. We have been very happy with that.
@sciograndma, My thoughts and prayers are included with this reply. Being in a rural area can pose a disadvantage to many patients who are seeking care, as you are well aware. Might I ask if your doctor has intervened and made contact with your insurance due to the fact that you 'need' this colonoscopy, and that there is a discrepancy between in network/out of network with your specialist and hospital? In my town, I have already been billed by the ER physician as being out of network while hospital is in network. Most of the time my insurance makes the adjustment, but on occasion, I have had to make the contacts myself.
Doctors are here to address our medical needs, and often not aware of the oddities of our insurances. There must be a person in the office who handles the insurance claims and billings. You and they might have to keep on making contacts and advocating for your health. Why don't you call your doctors office on Monday?
Or is there an in network provider/facility who is within a reasonable distance for you to get to?
thank you for your prayers!! The dr doing the colonoscopy has had his office resubmit the request. It just takes time…which I am not sure I have a lot of. Thanks for your suggestions!
