Anyone had gallbladder surgery?

17 replies • Last post

Hey gang, I'm wondering if any of you have had gallbladder removal surgery before, and if you have, what your experience was like?

I've had pain in my upper right abdomen for a couple of weeks, and over the New Year holiday, things got worse. I started getting bad pain at night and after I had a meal. I also was getting a fever and chills really bad as well. I thought I had the flu, but I don't really have anything else that makes me think that I have that.

I went to the doctor and they ordered some tests. One of the markers for something with bile in the liver and gallbladder area was high. Today I had to sit through getting pumped with radioactive dye and getting scanned. My doctor let me know that he's calling the surgeon and we'll move on from there.

I've had a double hernia surgery before and didn't think that it was too bad. The worst part was trying to pee after the surgery and dealing with the screws working their way into the muscle after the fact. Am I going to have any experiences like that with a gallbladder surgery?

Hi Friend, Brother of my father had experienced it a few years ago, but it was worse because the doctor initially diagnosed appendix, and after the appointment surgery appendix the complaints do not go away and more difficult to breathe because the stomach feels full.
After being referred to another surgical clinic, oprasi gallbladder removal is very fast, it takes about 2 hours. and immediately improved and able to eat and talk well after the surgery is done. May you get healing and always be peaceful in living your life
Smile

I don't think that I know anyone who has had that sort of surgery. What does the surgery consist of exactly? Is it for gall stones?

I'm sending my best wishes your way slim. I hope everything is sorted out and you feel a whole lot better soon.

Thanks for the kind words, guys. It looks like the surgery isn't too big a deal unless they run into a complication.

A little info on the procedure is here. It seems to be similar to a double hernia surgery I had about ten years ago. I think I only missed a couple days of work with that one, so if it's anything like that, it won't be too bad.

Well, I ended up having the surgery on Friday. Wasn't really too bad. I'm still sore and can't move around the greatest, but I'm trying.

The biggest thing was that I had a reaction to my anesthesia, and I ended up waking up violently. I guess I was thrashing and punching at the nurses who were around me, ripping at my incisions and IV port. They had to put me back under and wake me up again. When I came to, I had blood all over my belly, my gown, my arms, and my bed. I think that's why I'm still a bit sore to be honest.

Other than that, I'm doing good. I know I have to make some lifestyle changes, and I'm working on it. I'm hoping to get into running this year, so we'll see how that goes. Smile I don't feel pain when I eat anymore, which is a real plus.

I know I felt really nauseous after having anaesthetic when they operated on my arm a few years ago. But I have never heard of such a violent reaction to it. I hope you are well slim.

I know these things are no laughing matter but I can't help but find a thread like this with actual discussion and some lengthy talk to boot, absolutely awesome.

I've been doing really good since the surgery and have dropped 12 pounds. Yesterday though, I started to get a pain in my ribs that feels like when you've run too hard. It got worse over the last 24 hours to the point where it hurts to breathe or move. So I have to go back to the surgeon today to see what it's all about. Hopefully it's just a small thing that can be overcome easily.

Thanks for the well wishes everyone!

I ended up at the surgeon and they did blood tests and scans. While some of the blood stuff came back a bit elevated, they didn't seem too concerned. Said to give it time, which is both understandable and frustrating. I still hurt to breathe and move, but it doesn't look like there's much I can do, other than push through.

Thanks! Everything did come out okay. They said I had a displaced rib from the surgery, which was causing the pain. The funny thing is that it popped back into place all on it's own, and now I'm completely better.

Great to hear you're better man, 'displaced rib' sounds quite painful even that I've had never felt it.
