Carbon Dioxide Trapped in Me For Months after Surgery
Ever since my Gallbladder removal My Gallbladder pains have been gone, Duh!
However new symptoms have arouse, After getting a few more tests everything keeps coming back negative.
I'm following the advice of a Doctor on this forum and getting a few more things looked at, as well as that My Mum who is a Nurse warned me she was sore for up to a year after her Gallbladder removal due to Carbon Dioxide being trapped in her system.
Is it actually possible 2 months post op to have Carbon Dioxide still in me?
A Month ago I had lung scan and It was revealed I had carbon dioxide pockets in my lungs, they found it very strange.
2 Months on I've got a funny pain that travels in my body, its usually in my right lung, and now its in my stomach as I type this.
Tomorrow it will be in my shoulder or back, then back in my chest.
I actually feel like I've got one of those scarab beetles from the mummy crawling around inside of me lol.
