    Angry Gallbladder problems after removal, pls help

    Hi, I have been having a lot of issues, so tired I will try to be brief, I had very bad right side pain, I had all type of blood work done, nothing, i was then sent for a x-ray of chest,nothing, i was then adv to go get a cat scan of stomach so they cld see organs, still nothing, I was on way from work one day and got so scared thinking something was erupting in my something went to er, they did ekg and exam was adv of previous test done and er doc suggested maybe its my gallbladder, I follow up with my doctor and was sch to have ultrasound done and sure enough it showed I had a ton of gallstones, so I was directed to gallbladder specialist whom suggested I get it removed so him on on wed and he sch surgers for 12/7/2010, Had lapascopic w/4 incisicions felt like crap the first day had to stay overnight, had to eat before leaving and I felt pretty good, then the pain comes my left and right shoulder blade and lower back hurt so bad was adv from the gas used during surgery shld subside in few days ok seemed to be getting better w/pain meds ok, it's been almost 2 wks and im still having side pain so bad last night i couldn't even sleep, cant lay on my right side very long w/o it feeling funny, bowels aren't regular, i sometimes feel the same pain i had before having it removed is this normal and when can i expect to feel better, I mean some people state they went back to work after 5 days I don't feel that way at all, my chest feels funny sometimes not sure if this is due to gallbladder problem or what just so tired of feeling out of whack I just wont my life back. Any response wld be appreciated.

    You are going to be sore for some time as your insides are bruised. They pulled the gb down from behind your rib cage to get it out your belly button. Lots of bruising happens as a result. Be patient with it. Try pain med at bedtime to help you sleep. Walk as much as you can. I jogged 2 miles a week after having mine out. Did it hurt? Yes...but I did it. This is one of those procedures where getting moving is best.

    Why did you have to stay overnight? That's very unusual - at least here they don't keep you unless something goes wrong.
