I realize that my physician wanted to wait until I got stronger after my september 17th reversal from my ileostomy, but I have been just miserable.
 
Anyway else out there who went out there?  I am just sick.  Back pain, shortness of breath, pain under my right rib.  I have two large gallstones and some inflammation in my gallbladder.
 
Thanks! ksd

I had my reversal August 8th, and my doctor cleared me for gallbladder surgery for the end of October. I ended up waiting until Dec 5th, because of work and ER scheduling. I now need my fifth surgery, and my surgeon said 6 weeks was enough time between gallbladder and abdominal hernia surgery. Then again, those two are both laproscopic.

In the meantime, be VERY VERY VERY careful about what you eat. Try to keep that gallbladder quiet while you wait.
If at first you do not succeed, then skydiving is surely not meant for you.


Jo - UC, total colectomy and ileostomy on August 24, 2007. Step 2 & ileostomy switched to left side - May 27, 2008, and take down August 8, 2008. Gallbladder removed December 5, 2008. LIFE IS GOOD.

Thank you for the information.  What type of symptoms did you have while waiting for the surgery?

Oh, I forgot to ask did you have anything bad happen after your gallbladder surgery?
