I just want to says Im sorry if I am upsetting  anyone  by posting some posts referring to my surgery and the pain im in. I know a few of them are off the topic. If I had upsetted anyone just tell me  I will stop. I dont post much about my chronic back pain and fibro cause I have been dealing with that for over 10 years now and I feel  my pain lets me know im alive right? My chronic pain is just a matter of my life and I deal with it . It does help reading other people posts . I apoligize if Im upsetting anyone.

Hey Kimber....

No worries, ok? If we all have to start thinking about about "off topic" posts... I don't see how this is going to work. But that's just me....

I hope you are feeling a little better today.

Kimber, it's not you and you've done nothing wrong. Don't start second guessing yourself. Just continue to post with the freedom you've always had and don't worry about it.

Frankly, I think that if there is one person causing issues, then out them by providing all the names they post under and they'll likely stay away. I just said that in the long goodbye post as well. Why give one person all this power and attention...it's time to move on.

Posting about surgical pain is just as relevant as other pain, especially when it's added to CP. The only suggestion I would make is maybe to keep it to one thread dealing with that topic, and that takes up less forum space, then starting a new thread each time. And it makes it easier for at least me to follow! You can post updates on that thread as to how things are (or aren't) progressing, and unless it gets too long (I think the mods like to keep threads to 2-3 pages, but I'm not sure of that) you don't need to start a new thread.

I'm glad you're slowly feeling better.

How are you doing since your surgery? Have you noticed a difference in your you pain. Is the pain and discomfort that you experienced before the surgery gone? I know that there is other pain issues that the surgery presents that takes a while to resolve, but is the pain that your Gallbadder caused, is that gone? You know Kimber there are many types of pain, even chronic pain, and all or at least most of us I believe come here for understanding and support and maybe sometimes just to vent our frustrations and hope that there is a compassionate ear that is listening and will assure us that we are not alone and that they really do care about us and want to help us! Those of us with Chronic Pain no matter what the cause, often lack understanding from others, you read about that in so many post! But here we do have a family that does care and understands us. Pam is right Kimber, Please don't start seconding guessing yourself. It is ok to want to be understood and have support! Gallbladder surgery is not a pleasant thing to have done! It is OK to share with us your thoughts and feeling and fears and frustrations about it!! You know I really don't know what I would have done without having the support of my CP family here while I was going through my Divorce, I was in allot of pain from that! and still am to a degee, and with it, if you add on my back and spine problems, and my ACDF surgery I had in September! Well honestly I did not have, and still don't have any family but the one I have right here! And they (You) have all made a huge difference in my life! and I Thank You all for it! So hang in there Kimber, we are all here for you!

Whitebeard,the gb pain and attacks are gone and was gone when I woke up from surgery. I am just healing slowly from surgery and in alot of pain . Last night i didnt sleep well cause I was having alot of incision pain. The trapped gas is getting a little better. I think I over did it with walking today to get the trapped gas out because I am really feeling it right now. Thanks for checking in with me. I hope you have a lpn.

Kimber, you are a delight to read! You make me laugh sometimes because you are so open and honest! Don't change a thing as far as I'm concerned. You need to vent and you need advise, isn't that what we are here for? I wish I had your courage to say the things you do and ask the questions you ask. If things get "off topic" sometimes, so? It is about you and your health. My sincere hope is that you will just be the person you have been and don't worry about all the stuff that's been going on. As far as I can tell, you are in no way a part of it. Type and talk all you need too and if you think of something new you need to ask, please do Kimber...I want to hear you always.

I don't think I could say it any better than Palady did.

Hi Kimber....

We all have our bad days and times we just don't know how we're going to hold together. Without being able to come here and share it makes it twice as hard. Keeping your wonderful posts more consolidated into fewer would be a good idea that helps save room and money to keep this site up and running but no one's complaining that I know of. If someone is then ask them to get hold of me or another mod or the admin and we'll help them work it out.
