Who's had their Gallbladder removed?
 
I go see the surgeon tomorrow. It runs in the family. Good/bad I want to hear it all. I spent about 3 hours of testing last night to come up with this diagnosis.

Ha, almost made a thread like this yesterday. I have mine coming out on Monday morning.

Having the laparoscopic procedure? You'll probably go home the same day and be back at work in a couple of days.

I've not had one for 22 years
 
It's not bad, but you may want to change your diet. If you eat a lot of greasy food you'll be in the bathroom a lot.

Wife had hers taken out.

Really greasy foods mess with her stomach (cramps, $#its, etc) but outside of that she's fine...

I gave that up years ago along with sugar and caffeine. Don't have mom or grandma to the ask these questions, I weigh less now than I did in high school.

My wife had it done about 6 months ago. She was in and out in about 3 or 4 hors total. Rested up about a day or two and was back to normal. It's a pretty routine surgery.

Just trying to get a idea if I decide to go that way.

It's not a dramatic change to your life.

Make sure the x they put on you is not on your balls

Got mine out over ten years ago. Really greasy or rich foods kill me but that is the only difference. I don't particularly like either so it wasn't a big deal to give them up.

if they give you pain meds post op, make sure they give you a stool softener.

Had mine taken out in 1999, in by 9 out by 2....like everyone says, stay away from greasy or rich foods unless you find yourself 10 seconds from a bathroom.

If you like eating greasy learn to run with your butt cheeks clenched.

pimpchief 10-04-2012 06:25 PM

Thinking about taking mine out myself.

You're lucky you had it diagnosed by your doctor.

I had emergency surgery last January to remove my gall bladder. Prior to that I had no symptoms to indicate that anything was wrong. As I was driving to work one day I suddenly had an intense pain in my stomach. I got to work and decided to turn around and go home. By the time I had driven two blocks the pain got so bad that I decided to head to the emergency room instead. By the time I parked the car and walked inside, I was in so much pain and distress that I thought I was going to die.

They put me in a wheelchair, gave me morphine, ran some tests, and told me that my gall bladder was gangrenous and that they were going to have to remove it immediately.

Worst day of my life.

The surgery itself was pretty minor with a quick recovery time. Some doctors tell you to change your diet. My doctor said it wasn't necessary. However, if I eat greasy food I have the same experience that others have described.

Again, you're lucky the doctor found it before it shut down completely.
