Had mine out 3 years ago

I had the same procedure, a lapro. Was back to work and healed in a little less than 3 weeks.

Compared to a hyster. this is a walk in the park. I had crystals not stones, but imense pain. My Hida scan was on a Monday, had my esophogus stretched on Wed, and the GB surgery that Friday.

I have had 2 emergency esophogus surgeries, one preventative, 3 knee surgeries, sinus surgery. lasik surgery on my eyes and 2 broken arms at once in the last 10 years. Now I can add the hysterctomy. The easiest was the gall bladder.

I have to watch my fat intake but that is a small price to pay for no pain. Not to mention, I have lost a few lbs and I am back to were I want to be now. Now, yes... I do miss many of my fav high fat foods, like ice cream but the healthy diet outweighs the cravings.

If you need help after about diet, write to me, and don't hesitate to see a nutrionalist like I did and insurance covered it too.

Good luck.

Well, what can I say? Glad it's out and not causing anymore pain?

Still, surgery is surgery and please take care of yourself while you heal...especially surgery that's "unexpected" might leave you unprepared for rest or meals, etc.

Don't know much about gallbladder post op recovery...but I hope you continue to heal well!

Really, you should feel so much better after recovery from this. Good grief, is there anything else left to do??? Nothing scarier than emergency surgery. Like, "wait, I have to go home and do my research on this first!" I'm glad it's over for you. Now all that's left is to rest and recover.

This seems to be happening to a few sisters. I read that Estrogen and or HRT is a big factor in gallstones. Wonder how long it takes to make a stone? Don't answer that Maria...you go to bed.

Take care, I wish you well,

I am glad you are home. Get plenty of rest and avoid spicey and fried foods for a while longer. You may experience loose stoles for a week or two, but that is normal. Your body has to get used to functioning without your GB.
I had GB surgery 4 months post op. I felt much, much better with it gone. Mine was also inflamed with stones and adhesions all over it. No wonder I had been so nauseous throughout my hyst. recovery. I thought maybe the dr. had left something in there!
(not really!)

I'm sorry to hear about your gallbladder!! I just had a total hyst on January 19th along with a gallbladder surgery because it just happened to be acting up at the same time. To tell you the truth the gallbladder part is great!! I have no ill side effects, I don't even have any pain in that side of my stomache where the incisions are, it's wonderful. I can even eat what I want and not want to throw up anymore!! I think you'll do just fine, and be a lot happier afterwards, I wish you the best!!!!

Maria, I sure would like to know the relationship between the hysterectomy and the stones. I did read that estrogen and or HRT encourage stones, but there must be something else too.
It's happening so much here... that gallstones should be listed as a possible side effect of a hysterectomy

Take care,
