It took my 17 year old daughter about 4 days to really start to feel better. She also had alot of oozing mixed with blood coming from the incision near the belly button. She had her laposcopey done on Sept. 12--she is back 99% with the exception of still being careful what not to eat!! Good Luck!! I hope you feel better soon. Claire

Same here, daughter had it done, about 4-5 days. Several months before she could eat any fiber, which may/may not be longer for you with the CD. Wow! You two guys are really the walking wounded aren't you! Hope you both continue on the mend fast!

I haven't had gall bladder surgery, but I've had six or so abdominal surgeries. In my experience, the laparoscopies hurt more than open procedures. I think it's partly the gas they introduce into the abdominal cavity, but for whatever reason, it is a very painful recovery.

Sorry you're hurting and going through a hard time.

I think the 1st 4-5 days are really the worst of it. I had a burning type pain inside that lasted for awhile. But, then I also had the pain from the gas they blow you up with and I think it was the worse of the two. I never had any kind of oozing from any of the puncture marks. Hang in there it will get better each day. Remember to get up and walk, a to help rid of the gas and to keep from getting peumonia. Hugs, Susie
