Re: Feeling Dizzy, Post Gallbladder Removal

The pain in your back and shoulder is most likley what titchou said. It was a good 3 weeks before that was gone. I have to say that was the most painful thing out of the whole surg. And I was walking regularly the day after surg. I went back to work the day after (I do not reccomend this-my doc was very angry but my job was on the line)

I just had another thought though. Your dizzy spells may be due to pain meds. I dont know if you are still on them but that may be what is causing them. I would say though if they are not subsiding by your post-op appt I would bring it up with your doc. Google recepies for post op gallbladder. people with no gallbladder, diet for no gallbladder etc. Not sure if you like fish but it is good for us with no gallbladder. I hope this helps
That actually helps because at this point, I am beyond frustrated with everything. I just want to go back to feeling healthy again. The doctor told me there was a 20% chance that they would have to scope my stomach if I was still feeling sick.

I just want to be healthy again
