Default Gallbladder out

Well, I made it through the surgery yesterday and went home the same day. I'm a bit tender by my belly button and right side ribs. It doesn't hurt too bad. No nausea. However, I gave my wife and mother the scare of a lifetime when I was in recovery and pulling a code blue. They said it was a rare reaction to getting put under. I should be back fishing soon though!

Default Re: Gallbladder out

After I got mine out it only hurt when I laughed...or sneezed or anything like that. I haven't missed it a day since. I feel like that thing tried to kill me.

Glad I didn't code when I came to. I always wake up wanting to fight, ha, like I could take anyone when I feel good let alone when I am fresh out of surgery. Everyone just laughs at me.

I've never yet requested Bumble Bee Tuna after surgery though.

Yeah, it hurts a bit when I laugh or take a deep breath. I haven't sneezed yet thankfully, but hiccups weren't fun.

J: Good to hear everything turned out ok, I'm sure your family was pretty shaken up with the code Blue.

It's good to know you are recovering something in a week or so a little Fly Fishing should really help.
Cheer & a Fast recovery.

Dear God! Just saw this and I had mine go sideways while I was in the middle of my vineyard. Don't know if its a requirement here in Oregon but in California no one works alone. If you have to go 'somewhere' (driving a tractor) you have a cell phone on you.

Triming vines or some such when mine went out. Discovered what the word 'pain' was all about. Only good thing is the local fire department was less than a mile away and I'm still talking to the 911 lady and can here the sirens pulling into the yard.

EMT's found me on the ground next to the ATV; into emergency surgery minutes later. The cell phone? Still use the same one 15+ years later.

When I had my most recent gallbladder "attack" before surgery, I also discovered what pain really was. I couldn't stand up straight and had to get a shot of something strong because I almost passed out from the pain. I also developed Jaundice because the little stones were all jammed up in the tubes around the liver. I'm just glad it's said and done. The worst part of this actually has been the gas bubbles around my neck and shoulder from being inflated with air during the procedure.

Glad to hear the surgery was a success, despite the scare of coding. Here's to a speedy recovery and hoping you're back out on the water giving the fish a hard time.
