Honey, I'm Home!

Flowers sent by my workplace - they know me so well - I love purples and pinks and especially mini-carnations!

Well, the surgery is over and I am now minus one gallbladder, which was full of stones! Everything went well, and while I am in pain, it's being managed pretty good thanks to some Darvocet. One thing I didn't expect was to hurt near my collarbones, going toward my shoulders...apparently that is the result of the air they pump into you in order to see everything laparoscopically. It is about on par with the incision pain! But I've eaten and had lots of water and moved around the house a bit between naps, so that's good. According to the doctor, I will probably hurt worse tomorrow - so we'll see. I have my meds, my TV remote, and computer access when I can drag myself out of bed (which I should be doing periodically), so hopefully I'll be able to weather whatever my body throws at me.

Thanks again for all the well-wishes!!!

    I'm glad it went well for you. I'm glad you have pain pills and aren't afraid to use them when you need them.

    Hoping you have a very speedy recovery!

    I did think of you all day today, and I was actually a bit shocked to see a comment by you so quickly at my blog.

    Sending you virtual flowers of your choice. =)

  11. Hubby had his gallbladder out, before we even met. He still has to be careful what he eats - greasy foods make him sick.

    Glad you're doing well. Impressed at your speed of recovery.

  13. I'm glad your surgery went well! Do you think you'll weigh less now that your gall bladder is removed? How much does that weigh anyway?

    I wish you a speedy recovery!

    (thanks for the comment on my last post, it really helped me relax a bit just putting it so simply!)
