3 days ago I had gallbladder surgery to remove my gallbladder. However, it was not there
and I have never had surgery before.
Prior to this surgery I had a CT scan which showed no signs of a GB and a ultrasound
w/ same results. I did a HIDA scan and had no function of GB.
My dr. referred me to a surgeon, who requested that i have my gallbladder removed.
He told me it was likely filled w/ cholesterol and not working. I kept telling him are you
sure i have a gb and he said yes I've never operated on anyone that didn't have one.
So anyway i let him talk me into it (Mistake!)
Now after having this procedure done on me...I am in allot of pain trying to
recover from this surgery of my phantom gb. I had pre-existing digestion problems and now i'm
having a very painful time recovering from the holes they put on my stomach
and the Co2 that is still in my body from the abdominal insufflation.
Can anyone please tell me how to get rid of this C02 ??? I can feel it moving around in my abdomen (when i lay down and get up) and it is causing me allot of pain.
