I'm alittle nervous I had to come off of the weekly Humira injection 4 weeks ago and things are pretty tough right now.  I;m wondering if alks have had this before particulary the gall bladder emovak and intestinal lap.  What has the recovery time been and what kinda of diet do people find successful.  I'm in a bit of a bind since I have both Crohn's and IBS.  I also do not respond well to anethesia.  I have a very difficult time going under.  I was wide awake for cardiac ablation whicjh is pefromed under concieous sedation but none of it worked even after being given the does of a 300 lb male.  I've got my fingers crossed that evrything will work out. A couple of thoughts and prayers would help.
Thanks & enjoy the weekend!

I will keep you in my prayers that this surgery will give you some relief. You will have some more d after this but that can be helped with Questran. Try to stay away from fatty foods for a while also. Good luck!

talk to your anesthesiologist of options. epidural worked better for me than in my arm for bowel surgery. They asked me like from 1 to 10 how i was feeling, that way they can make adjustments.
