Laproscopic Choleosystectomy (gall bladder removal)

Such long words :) Well, I have the surgery scheduled for Monday (all being well). My chest CT scan came back showing an abnormality - seeing a cardiologist today. All of the symptoms:- chest and abdominal pain with breathing, burping, yawning, lupus flare, etc., is all contributed to the gall bladder issue. Looking forward to it's removal. Keep my in your thoughts and prayers.

Thank you

Hi Sylvi,  Gall bladder surgery went well.  I got home yesterday.  Feeling bloated, sore and have shoulder pain (expected).  I'm walking as much as possible and eating (reduced fat).  The doc. said I should be able to return to work in a week - Yay!!

Just wanted to say, my Father had exactly the same symptoms, had it removed 5 months ago and feels great!!! Hope it's the same for you, take care.

Hi woodstar1 - I feel sooo much better now.  The stones were huge - one was about an inch and a half and in the shape of a barrel.  The doc. said that he rarely sees them that size and never that shape.  Takes me to create something unique. :)

I hope all goes well with the cholecystectomy, with being keyhole it's more likely your recovery should be quick so I hope it is.

I do hope the appointment with the Cardiologist went ok, had my fill of appointments with those! On a positive note we are fortunate nowadays that an anomalies are picked up on by CT scans, my h is awaiting the results of his latest scan & hoping it's not necessary to have another op, me too!!! Do let us know how your appointment went.

Hi :) Thank you for your support and advice. The chest CT scan showed abnormalities which the cardiologist would like to do further tests when I recover from the surgery. Right now I'm just waiting to go to the hospital to get the surgery done and to get a new lease on life. I'll update when I'm able to. Thanks again for your advice and well wishes.

Had mine out two years ago, took it gentle for a bit and followed advice given, while later it's like it hadn't happened. I have 3 to tiny scars but as those match my stretch marks lower belly, I hardly see them hahahahaha. Once healed I wasn't told I couldn't eat, drink or do anything I'd normally do.

Word of advice - when you come round from anasthesia, if your knees are bent upward, do check under the sheet to make sure they removed the very sticky tape that keeps that "vanity cloth" over your private area while they operate.

They left mine there, I moved my legs post op to stretch them, it became more of a. "DIY Brazilian"

(Hahahahaha - Ouch was an understatement for that cheap hair removal)
