Thought I better reverse gall bladder as you have reversed you name.

How are you doing and have you been under the knife yet?

't has subsided for now, i have my consultant appointment later this month and a stash of morphine based pain killers just in case.

Seemingly it can be aggravated by something as simple as taking cream in your coffee, mine seems to dislike fried food so everthing is grilled for now. bit trial and error to find out what upsets it.

Seriously wouldn't wish the pain on anybody. when it's there there is no respite.

A few members have had this done and pm'd me to let me know. All have carried on with a TOTALLY normal life afterwards. Nice to know and i thank them for sharing the information with me and putting my mind at rest somewhat :). Please pass this info on to your missus ragman.

Ragman there can be some after effects - my wife finds that she cannot eat late otherwise it causes her problems and that she can only drink alcohol in very strict moderation.

However, she is very much of the opinion that this is very minor compared to the pain before the operation.

The norm now is keyhole surgery.

Hm,

Sorry to hear your wife has some side effects. 1st question I asked my consultant was regarding alcohol :em: . Obviously it effects individuals differently. Quite agree about the pain though.
Problem is with me whilst ever I am painfree the inner me says, Oh, it's fine you really don't want to go under the knife and you forget how intense it can be. Its been around 9 weeks now since my last attack, don't know if that is good or bad for the long term.

Please comeback and update the thread after your wife has seen the consultant Colin :)

I had keyhole surgery to remove a piece of bone I chipped in my knee a few years back, had a general anesthetic, but was able to drive home in the evening. I drove 300 miles to get home the next day, the "wound" was tiny, and apart from the usual pain involved in a small cut I was fine.. :D :D

I hope you all get sorted asap and with no problems.. :)

HI Dave.
I used to get bloated,doubled up with pain in my sides and i mean both sides i know it does not make sense but its called defered pain, used get pain in my pancres, inflamed liver it was while i was seeing a gastro specialist when i mentioned all the pain and twice i was rushed into hospital because i could not breath properly thought i was having an heart attack he said Ho that will be from your gall stones :confused: i said i never knew i had gall stones yes he replied it as showed up on the scan last year i had took, this is after he also had done a liver biopsy which he found out i have cirrhosis of the liver from the good old days of drinking :lol: :lol: :thumbsup: Then i first had a angiagram main vain in your leg cut open and a camera put in which leads to your heart to see if that was ok and not furred up etc, if it's not you have a stench put in but that came back ok, then six months later i was booked in to have gall bladder removed he said faily easy key hole surgery but sometime we have to open the person up because of complications this was in April 2009 my bladder was that infected and stretched that much they could not do key hole so i was opened up, the consultant told my wife i was lucky as if i had left it much longer it would have burst and then i would have been in a right state.

Still feels numb now after two years as the stomach muscles had to be cut and the nerve endings, of cause now i have no bladder and the same ammount bile to digest the food as before so have to watch the fatty foods bacon lamb fat on the beef etc still eat it but not as often as i did, well you know i occasionaly have a drink :thumbsup: or two but no pain and go to the toilet better too, my op went septic though so had to have it dressed for about a month, if you are given the chance to have the op take it before it gets to bad,and while the stones are small and maybe not to many the longer you leave it the worse they will become as they pile on top of each other. I did have pics of the scar from just after the op untill it healed but i just can not find them mind i would not want to scare you, :oops: may have already ;) no really get it done you will not look back Arctic
