Lovely darling thanks xxx basically I'm still aching from my op...or I think it's my op any way! Just want ed to know how others in my situ felt 7 months on. Also sometimes if I have a bit of a pig out on booze or the wrong foods I get pain or a bad tum, I was wondering if that's all part of not having a gall bladder to break down the fat etc? Generally I feel tired non stop and wonder if that's having the op only a few weeks after Having a baby or if I should be getting checked over at the dr?

have asked her aboutu recovery etc. I am such a doughnut, I could have asked her ages ago!

Don't worry hun, its not the most riveting of conversations is it, the gall bladder!

My dad has. He had his gall bladder and part of his large intestine removed a year ago. He needs the toilet very quickly after eating most things, and for a while had pain if he accidentally knocked his scar, even after it looked like it had healed. He hasn't mentioned any tiredness though.
It won't harm to get checked over by your doctor and will hopefully put your mind at ease?

Her response (her op was 18 months ago):
"I didn't have any of thos symptoms after mine, I still occassionally get the same pain but very mild and only if I am over hungry or have eaten loads and loads of crap. What she is suffering from does not sound normal to me, would tell her to go to the docs x"
Get checked out

Thanks hun, I have an apt for next weds xxx probably just where I had a crap pregnancy, mega quick birth, and then the op 3 weeks later....maybe just a bit too much to do to my body in the space of a few weeks lol xx

I had mines removed 3 months after having my youngest. I've not really had any issues since, I certainly wasn't still in pain months afterwards. I do occasionally get a bit of a bad tummy if I've eaten rubbish but not the same pain that i got from the gallstones. I'd go back to your gp and get it checked out

Thanks lovely xxx
I tend to get achey rather than pain. Sometimes I can link it to lifting, ie when we moved and I was lugging furniture it made the areas around my scars and internally ache like a ***. like you if I eat rubbish food or booze I get pain, but that does go.
I'll see what the dr says next week xx thanks for your reply sweetie xxx

Sorry only just seen this.
I had mine out a few years ago. I took a while to recover certainly longer than the 2 weeks I was advised but nowhere near 7 months. Once it settled down I was fine and much,much better than I was before I had the op. In fact I'm now as good as new now and eat and drink what I want. x

I had quite a bit of discomfort some months after to the point I had to take myself to A&E. I did also have abnormal liver function (bloods) and needed a liver scan.
Thankfully nothing obvious was found.
I do still at times get an odd feeling were I used to get the pain and the only way I can describe it is like a quick kick from a baby. But I believe its bile passing direct as obviously there's nowhere to store it now.
I was told I had post cholecystectomy syndrome. www.nhs.uk/.../Riskspage.aspx
Hopefully your gp will reassure you and start by doing bloods. X

Thanks for your replies ladies xxx my pain is more like something inside is too tight or pulling or twisting, I guess like a stitch? And sometimes te pain you describe is when I've eaten rubbish food etc. I think I need to be put down lol xx
