Sorry to hear that you had what appears to be complications post susrgery. That is exactly my fear that I will be walking in OK and come out with other things. However this week I had been symtomatic with burping,burning in the epigastric and lower abdominal area plus sharp pain in my upper abdomen/chest. I f this is indicative of what is coming down the pike then I don't have much of a choice, still anxious about the decision to have surgery...Best Wishes and Good Luck to you and I hope everything turns out well for you!
I was discharged & they missed that I was bleeding internally. I lost half my volume of blood into my chest cavity. I had to go back in & I had a blood transfusion. They got me gowned up to remove the blood, but then decided as it wasn't causing me any problem, they'd be better off letting it disperse naturally.
I actually had little pain from the op, the surgeon was very surprised as the gas can cause more pain than the op.
I was relieved to say the least.
I haven't been well for a while & recently had a bad episode of pain & got my Hubby to rush me to the surgery. It was just like a bad attack of Gallstones.
I had a abdominal scan on Monday & they found calcification around the site of where the Gall Bladder was. Unsure what it is, but I'm sure someone will let me know eventually. I have an endoscopy on Friday too. Fabulous!
Thank You for your input and taking the time to comment. How did you do in your recovery? Did you have side effects such as indigestion, diarrhea and others. I beginning to feel some ache on my right side and very midl nausea.
I had mobile stones 2 years ago & when I had my surgery, the surgeon told me it was just at the right time. If I'd waited at all it would have gone into the bile duct & would have become an emergency.
It was almost in the bile duct & boy am I glad I had it removed.
