| | Gallbladder Surgery Recovery
Well im 20 years old and just yesterday i was an outpatient to have my gallbladder removal surgery done, they told me there was a possibility that maybe i would have to have an incision done instead of the less invasive procedure they do which is called a laposcopy. but thank god they went with the laposcopy procedure. The anesthesia wore off last night and i woke up with some moderate pain, took 10 mg of vicodin and now its getting a little better.
Point is, I was wondering if any of you out there have had this surgery , and what can I expect from the day after surgery to the full recovery time , which is about 2 weeks , maybe less. Im concerned if i take a shower, or sleep on my right side (which is the side with the most pain), if i should be walking around or if i should be eating anything in specific. What was the average recovery time for any of you?. and when where you able to get back to your daily routine? Did any of you have any complications? such as infection, more pain, or other intestinal concerns? If so , what were they?
any of the questions answered would be a great help. Thank you all for reading and for your response.
