Hi Crampster and PBJMom! Sorry, I've been pretty busy lately and just now found the time to check in.
Crampster-awww, that's too bad! That stinks that you've been feeling worse. At least now you've got some more pain pills. Stay in bed as much as possible and just take it easy.
PBJMom-sounds like you aren't doing too badly, that's good to hear
! Hopefully the pain in your legs will ease up and isn't anything too serious. And remember, as a word of caution, even when you're having good days don't overdo
! I've made that mistake more than once.
I'm doing pretty good-I have my good days and bad days. Today was a really good day-not much pain at all. My problem is that I had (well, have) other issues outside of the gallbladder. I can't wait to get everything resolved! The doctors I've seen haven't been able to find the source of all my problems yet. Crampster, you've mentioned that you have IBS-did it take a long time for you to get diagnosed and are your symptoms under control now? I'm starting to think maybe that's what I have-I don't have the classic symptoms for it, and have rectal bleeding and pain every day, but I'm running out of any other possible diagnosis. It's very frustrating!
But anyways, back to recovery from gallbladder surgery, I'm healing pretty well and doing good. I see my surgeon again next month just to check over the incisions and also to make sure I don't have a hernia or anything.
Good luck both of you-take care!
