Holy smokes!! the gas is incredible!!

(((Dawn))), the "M" medication Kim is referring to is Mylicon, similar to Gas-X. It is pretty effective and worth a try!

What happens with a lap is that they blow your belly up with CO2 to visualize things better; if your doctor didn't do a really thorough job of getting rid of it before removing the scope, that's what causes all the problems. It's not totally an intestinal thing, which is why it takes so much longer than regular gas to feel better. But it will absorb soon! Lying flat is a great idea, as it keeps the gas from rising and irritating the nerve that leads to your shoulder. And, of course, ing always helps, as you can.

I sure hope this gall bladder surgery solves many of your problems and that you're feeling better SOON!

Big s -- and sorry I've not been in touch sooner (long story, but I'm not on-site very much these days...).

Holy smokes!! the gas is incredible!!

Hello there
I had my gallbladder out in May. It wasn't to bad the gas is what you are feeling and it is awful. I used phasyme and walked alot and it did help. As far as healing time listen to your body it will let you know what it is ready to do or not ready. I wouldn't try to lift anything or bend to much. DO NOT PUSH A VACCUM., or a mop that hurts.
I felt like crap for the first week then slowly it got better. Within a month I was back to my ol self. But don't push yourself, it takes everyone different lengths to heal. But listen to your baky it will let you now.
I hopw that help. If you need to talk PM me.'


Take care
Jen

Thnks you so much ladies for the insight!! I have had no idea what a lap was really as I had never had one before. This really is different than an Abdomninal and I would not have thought so from what I have been told.

Jen..thanks for the insight on healing time, I needed to know that, as my family has the idea ALREADY, Two days post that I'm fine and should be up and cleaning. Sheesh, One day they will get a clue.


(((((Audrey))))))) I look for you from time to time to see how you are doing dear and miss your posts! Thank you for explaining to me some of the process. I had no Idea. I knew they "fill you with air" but didn't really have a clue as to what a "lap" was. I still haven't figured out which hole everything came out of!!! I'm amazed at the difference in surgery...My tummy is going thru things I didn't think possible!! hee hee I'm glad to see you still here from time to time to check on us...please let us know how you are doing sweetie!

Holy smokes!! the gas is incredible!!

Hi Dawn
I hope you feel better soon. I had my GB out last Sept. It was my first and only lap. The worst part for me was the pulling sensation around the naval incision. It took a couple weeks before that sensation went away. As far as feeling nauseous and the other symptoms from the sick Gb it went away almost immediately. I never experienced the gas symptoms. I could have gone back to work sooner, but I stayed off for about three weeks. I wanted to make sure I was healed, since I have a physical job.
I hope your symptoms were taken care of. I still had constipation (bowel issues) going on and found out I had a rectocele and enterocele a month later. Too bad it wasn't found sooner, so that everything could have been fixed at once.Good luck with the colon dr. appt. I am seeing a colon dr too for more bowel issues. I am awaiting a defecogram test again as I may have another prolapse.
I hope you feel better and better as each day passes.

Holy smokes!! the gas is incredible!!

Talk about belly button pulling... I sometimes feel like he sewed things up way to tight inside!!! And I've noticed for someone who isn't supposed to have stitches...well...there is this thread hanging out of one site that is itching and driving me crazy under my steri-strips....where did this thread come from????????

Still doing the Genealogy thing and loving being able to spend the time on it...now to start putting my binders with my information together!!

Reguarding stitch

Hi Dawn, It sounds like your spirits are up a little bit! About the stitch, what ever you don don't pull it! It could be a "running stitch"? I think the what they call it when they stitch in the inside? It's one long continouse(sp) stitch. Anyway I had one of those and yes they itch like crazy as it heals! How far back have you gotten in the geneology? Glad your keeping busy! Take care Netty

I pulled the steri strip off the thread... that helped. whew....it was driving me crazy!!!

I went to our "local hangout" today and that was nice...i got a card signed from everyone to wish me well. Everyone picked on me today.

I do have a question....why are my ankles and feet swelling to such large proportions??? the EKG showed I had some heart problems could this be causing this? I can't wear anything but flip flops and even these show tightness???

and In several families I've gottem as far as 1730....anyone want help? I love Genealogy!!!!
