Gallbladder surgery

Posted by roisemaire @roisemaire, Nov 30, 2017

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

Hi,
I'm new here and wanted to ask if anyone has the names of a few top Gallbladder Surgeons at Mayo Clinic in Rochester? I read that Mayo Clinic is the top hospital in the nation for this type of surgery, but closer to home would be MIchigan so if anyone has the names of a skilled surgeon near the Grand Rapids MIchigan/Kalamazoo Michigan area. Or University of MIchigan in Ann Arbor, i would consider that too. I need to have my gallbladder removed due to gallstones, but have great reservations and anxiety about having the surgery. I know people who have not had a problem after surgery, and those who have had a terrible time, even having a worse condition after the surgery. Thanks

Hello I just had my gallbladder removed this past Monday February 11th and before surgery I had nausea and was hoping it would go away after it was out but now I keep having it and it makes me feel horrible. I see that it can be normal but I wasn’t for sure. Did anyone else have the same problem or did it go away?

I had gallbladder surgery years ago and I had to learn a new way to eat. No fats, spicy food whole milk no good. I took a little time to get use to eating different foods but it got better so give yourself time.

I had my gallbladder removed 6 months ago and have had issues since. Did you ever experience any constant pain months after the surgery?

Would you believe I also had my gallbladder removal on Monday, Feb 11. I had nausea and severe pain from gall stones for years before surgery. After the surgery, I did experience a little nausea. My doctor prescribed nausea medication. Last night, Feb 16, I had severe pain for 5 hours. I believe it came from thinking I was recovered and ate too much.

How do you feel today? Do you still think it was because of eating too much? Do you take care with what you eat? We’re you given any restrictions?

I think it was because I ate too much at one time. Today I feel wonderful and have no pain. I ate small portions many times today. Most of what I ate was rather bland; but, for dinner my wife made me a soup of chicken broth and chopped up chicken. It tasted wonderful. Tomorrow she’s going to make a big container of the soup and put it in the refrigerator so I can dish out the portion size I want. When she makes the soup tomorrow, she’s going to add carrots and water to cut down on the salt content. It helps to get through this recovery if I have some good food to look forward to eating. I hope everything is starting to get better with your recovery.

I had gaulbladder surgery 6 weeks ago and now I have pain from my side through the back and when I went back to the Doctor he said he never had anyone come back everytime they have a little pain. He just had me lift up my shirt and said everything looks ok, never checked a thing, I have to find out what is wrong. Wondering if anyone else has this problem after surgery

I think the stitches on the inside are healing, When you think of it the body is reacting to having been radically altered, the fascia gets moved aside or cut, the muscles are pulled aside or sometimes cut; scar tissue can adhere; the nerve endings are maybe coming alive again. Of course I’m just guessing as I am not a surgeon but I can imagine it takes quite some time to heal. It’s been nearly a month since my colectomy, and in some ways the scars feel worse than they did days after surgery.. but after time the cells in the tissues will do their wonderful job of carrying away waste and your body will be be ok. I’m going to get acupuncture to rebalance my systems.

@cnastu If your doctor was not concerned then it's probably normal to feel some pain/discomfort. Do you feel confident in your doctor? I presume you must if you chose him for surgery. I think that @maryswims is probably absolutely right.
