Hi everyone. I had my gallbladder removed this past Tuesday. The surgery went fine...it was laproscopic. I was in and out very quickly and did fine during the procedure.
However now that I am home I feel awful. I am suffering from stomache pain and back pain (muscular). It is dibilitating part of the time. I also have a sore throat (very difficult to swallow) and my neck is extremely stiff. I don't know what my neck has to do with anything, but it is so sore it was hard to hold my head up when I leaned back in the shower.
I am taking Lortabb to control the pain and it works fairly well, but when it wears off I begin experiencing the symptoms described above. Is this normal? I don't understand the sore throat. Is a tube placed in the throat during surgery? Thought maybe that was the cause or perhaps it is a side effect of the anesthesia.
Any help would be appreciated.
