Re: Surgery on 11/30 - Im scared!

You should lay off the fat for at least 2-3 weeks or longer if you can. And then SLOWLY introduce it - like a small pat of butter on your baked potato.

Also you might try zyrtec instead of the benedryl. It's good for rashes.

Re: Surgery on 11/30 - Im scared!

Oh, I am staying off fat. I am actually doing better each day. I really have no complaints in that that dept.

I am still itchy, and used Benadryl cream. Can try the Milk of Mag, if we have it, worth a shot.

Zyrtec also makes me a space zombie. I must be really sensitive to drugs.

Hi there, I just found out my gallbladder is functioning at 1%. I'm absolutely terrified of the surgery. I'm a healthy 21 year old and I'm not sure why all of this is happening. I find out if I'm getting my gallbladder taken out February 1, but I most likely will have it removed. I have anxiety about most things and this surgery is freaking me out. I've read that some people feel worse after. Any advice or calming words?

Re: Surgery on 11/30 - Im scared!

It's very common in females leading many to think hormones may have some part in it. Or you may have too much or too little fat in your diet. It's no big deal. For 99% of people this is a simple, no long lasting side effects proposition.

I had mine out and jogged 2 miles a week later - at age 59. I've not had any issues and only personally know a couple of people who have - and both of them because they refused to eat low fat immediately after the surgery.

Now some do have other issues that make things problematic but am sure your doctor will go over any of them that you may have...or you can ask. Seriously, ask around. Am sure you know people who've had theirs out!
