Gallbladder removal



Recommended Posts

Did anyone else get the gallbladder removal along with the bypass? I am only feeling pain in the upper right side where the gallbladder used to be. From the bypass I am fine now that I am 5 days out. If you had it removed did you feel any pain or soreness and if so, for how long?

@Cookie.Monster My gallbladder was remove prior my gastric bypass last year to exact. The pain I had from that surgery was greater than my gastric bypass and hiatal hernia. To my surprise the risks are a bit higher than gastric bypass. I had low grade fevers for like 10 days, felt my upper quadrant if as someone had punch 🥊 a million times, I did manage though. Hope you feel ok 👍 just talk to your surgeon 👨‍⚕️ and speedy recovery

Thank you! It feels better knowing that other people went through something similar and moved past it.

I had my gall removed 2 yrs after my sleeve & my gall removal was way more painful too. Pulled & strained muscles, gas pain, etc. Took longer to recover generally post surgery too.

Hope you feel better soon.

My doc took mine out during the bypass. Apparently he usually does this. I had a sore, hard spot for about a week but not a huge amount of pain, or at least nothing the pain meds couldn't handle.

I’m just about 3 days post op and I’m experiencing more pain now than I
ever have. That’s because I thanked warfarin due to my blood clot and PE problems. Any time I have surgery I must stop the warfarin and have Lovenox injections in my belly it causes large hard hematomas. They are painful. When I had my surgery Monday 11/01/21 and it was a complicated one and add the hematomas on my belly I’m in so much pain. No amount of medication will
Make it go away.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
