Quick Update

Hey guys-

Gallbladder is out and I'm definitely feeling better. Had to stay the night last night since the surgery was late and I was extremely dehydrated. It took 3 people to stick me 6 times before they got the IV in me yesterday. YUCK. I'm so glad I stayed over night as the morphine IV pain meds every four hours were better than being home popping a pill. I barely made it every four last night. I'm doing better today on the pills. I'm definitely sore but laproscopy is much better than being cut open the old fashioned way. Apparently my GB was very inflamed so I'm glad I didn't try to wait it out and just went for it.

That's all for now. I'm heading back to the couch.

So happy it's over and it went well. Hope your feeling better soon. As to your comment about the food in the previous post, I think it depends on the person. From what my doc said (and my experience) you may be able to eat normally without an issue in a few weeks.
