Sorry I haven t posted. I think it is a given that when were don't hear from each other we are taking a mental break or we are just too darn sick! Unfortuneately, it is "B" for me. In addition to the usual problems, I have bloated (50 lbs in 3 weeks), and severe abdominal pain. Constant nausea, headaches, stomach pain severe! I spent last thanksgiving in hospital with this so it is not a new problem. (I will also have a hernia repair at the same time).
My questions are these:
Has the gallbladder surgery helped (fellow Lymers)?
Doesn't it make sense that if I am getting ready to
get another port, I would rather any "movement" go straight through rather than park in the gallbladder(bile)?
What is recovery like? How long should I expect?
Should I get the port before the surgery or wait and get a few weeks under my belt?
I really appreciate your stories/advice.
For Jennifer in Tampa, are there any support groups arround here? I really need one. If not, how about you and I starting one? After over 2 years my marriage is going south very fast, I could use a group!
