I think I misunderstood and have thought that you were having chronic pain besides the gallbladder issues..I have only been here a few months so don't know everyone's stories yet....that is why I made suggestions about
a PM to take over...so sorry for the misunderstanding on my part..
Just wanted to clarify...and I agree with PALady...trying to work on the emotional side of our pain is very important...As SE talked about
in another post...a surgery can bring up a lot of emotions because it takes a big toll on our body...along with the medications like anesthesia/pain medicine...
So..I hope that you can just have a relaxing evening...try to not think too much about
it..and just go in and talk with him just like you talk with us here...Maybe even ask about
what types of things you can be doing to help recovery in addition to the meds...like light stretching, exercise, any type of dietary restrictions, etc..Just getting out and going for a nice walk can help calm your mind as well as be healthy...sometimes just sitting/reclining too much can get us down too..
I hope it all works out for you and most important...that your pain starts to get less and less each day!!
