Re: Constipation after gallbladder surgery
The constipation problem has gotten better (surgery was March 14th). For about the first 2-3 weeks, I had a terrible time with it.....the Dr. said that some of it could be coming from the pain medicine.
Now, I am experiencing some of the diarrhea problems that everyone told me about...but even that has not been to bad. Overall, I haven't had any major problems.
Before surgery, my major problem was when I would wake up, I would have a terrible soreness in my stomach area which ran all the ran around my mid-section. It felt like someone had beat the crap out of me....not sharp pains, just a terrible soreness. I dd not have stones, my gallbladder was only working at 18%.
The first 2 weeks after surgery I had no pain and thought...Great. But, in the last couple of weeks, I have started to experience that same soreness...so it makes me wonder if something else is going on. It is not as often and not as bad as before so I hope that maybe in time it will go away.
