OK it's now been three weeks since the op and I am still having problems. Not sure how long it takes to get past the worse of it. My wounds are still scabbed up and seem to be taking ages to heal. I also got a bit of a itchy rash on the chest (I will ask doc about that just in case).
Now the big problems. First I am still suffering from painful trapped wind. Today I had pain down the lower right side of my back which was only relieved by lying down. I took some Windeze to try and get rid of the gas which helped a little. My doc (Not my regular GP that day) prescribed Mebeverine. This does not seemed to have helped any (Not sure how many days it takes to work if at all) but have read that only 1 in 6 people find it beneficial anyhow.
I have diarhoea but not always. Sometimes it's just soft. My main problem is the painful trapped wind which is usually worse when I lie down to try and sleep. It usually sits around where the liver is /gallbladder was. Mornings are awful. But today it was OK when I got up but by midday I had the back pain.
Stretching in certain directions sometimes causes me pain in the area of the gallbladder too.
I have also had reflux (Which I sometimes get anyhow) and feeling chills/cold/flu like symptoms (Also had some sniffles).
I recently came off Remeron post op. Probably not a great idea while still recovering but stopped taking them after a reducing dose two weeks ago. I have a prescription of low dose Elavil and was thinking of trying it to see if it helped the IBS symptoms.
I am wondering if I made the right decision now to have the gallbladder out. Right now I feel a lot worse than before. I just hope that time will heal me back to normal (Or close as).
