Hi All,well the dr thinks I just bruised myself and pulled some muscle in my back no more damage  . He prescribed me  Flexeril to take up to 3 times a day for 10 days . I am still on Ultracet for pain. I was kind of scared when I fell  but no damage . I have a post op question about my gb surgery all who is familiar and had the lap procedure for that. I appreciate any advice. Mostly all the surgery pain is settling down but  I still have the muscle pain  in my stomach where I had the surgery. Is this normal for 7 weeks later?. The surgeon dismissed me on April 20th  so I cant ask him . I go back to my pcp on July 29th . I feel the muscle pain in my stomach every night and especially if I do alot of walking.  The flexeril should help that also  a long with my back spasms right? I hope everyone has a lpd. My hubby is taking me out to the movies for my B-day . I certainly hope the flexeril  helps me relax so I can sit that long . Dont worry Im not driving. Thanks everyone for their support.

Hi Kimber.  I'm so glad that you didn't injure anything else when you fell.  I sure hope the Flexeril helps the muscle spasms.  Happy Birthday again.  Take care.

Hi Kimber...

It might be a good idea to at least call your doctor and ask if it's something to worry about. But remember with fibromyalgia...it has quite a talent for amplifying pain anywhere in the body. And I'm convinced it has a memory....seriously! Either way it would put your mind at east, and our too, if you ask the doc.

Hugs,

Hi Kim. I don't know anything about gallbladder surgery. I know that when I have had surgeries, I always had twinges of pain for about six to eight months. Stomach pain is awful though. Can you just give your surgeon a call to ask or can't you call because he dismissed you? I would definitely want to know.

Hugs
