New to this – No Gallbladder

No Gallbladder

Hi all, so I had my gall bladder out on July 5th, I’m not doing too bad now, I think the recovery process is finally really coming along. I’m still having some gas issues causing some pain but it isn’t bad, and is getting better. I make sure I walk each day and I’m sure that is helping a lot. My incisions are mostly healed though, the worst part is that there was a bandaid used on my arm that I’m allergic too, so it’s been itchy. lol

I’m trying to mostly stay away from fatty foods though as I’m sure that wouldn’t help with the gas stuff. I’m hoping that goes away in time as I think it’s still pretty sensitive right now. I usually feel the pain the most when I go for those walks.

  1. Hi Ken and Roland,

    My name is Bernie and I am currently a surgical technologist student. I have to write a paper on a pre and post operative experience obtained through a blog. Would you be willing to answer a few questions? I will not include any personal information in my paper.

  2. Hi, Roland…

    Have you tried drinking probiotic drinks? Some said Kefir worked on them, but I haven’t tried that one. So I can’t confirm it by myself.

    I only drink Yakult probiotic drink. Before, after my gallbladder surgery I took it every after breakfast. Sometimes if I felt bloated I drank twice, one in the morning and 1 in the evening.

    I also heard of digestive enzymes but haven’t tried it.

    Have a speedy recovery…

    • Thanks man, I haven’t tried those, or heard of them even. If those issues return I’ll definitely look into that. Yesterday and today have been great though. Not really much pain anywhere, and I ate some stuff yesterday that should have bothered me I’d think. I really think the daily walking has helped me and it seems I’m quite on my way in feeling much much better 😀
