Hi All,  I had my surger on November 1..  I am in alot of pain so I will keep this short..  They took out the gallbladder and also found out that my appendix was bad also so they took that out to.  Also they took adhesions from my colon off..  So you can imagine my pain!!!  And to top it off this was outpatient!!!  What the heck.. They take out 2 organs and send me home...  Anyone know how long till I feel human..  I am having alot of back pain and stomach pain..  Alot of gas..  I can't take pain pills because they make me sick so I am just white knuckling the pain...  Talk with ya soon.....

Chew gum,it help after surgery.Not gum with artificial sugars.

Did you had ANY abdominal surgery in the past???I need to know because apparently,adhesion only occurs after surgery.

Spasman,  Yes I had 4 abdominal proceedures in the past..  That is what causes the adhesions in the 1st place... Most doctors do not want to remove them because of the liability also they come back most of the time..

I don't know about you but gum gives me gas as I take in too much air. I would work on the gas situation as I bet you are super sensitive to gas right now so maybe some Pepto or Maalox Max might help or just plain gas pills. Can you take Advil or Tylenol. So sorry you have to go thru that. It is terrible how they throw you out now days after surgery. They say you will do better at home but I don't think anyone should go home that fast. At least keep someone overnight to monitor. Whenever I have had to go to hospital for other things I think they keep me too long. Last time I was fine and wanted to go home and they said I may as well stay another night than come back the next day for Ultrasound test.
