Weird Gall Bladder Removal Question
0

14 posts in this topic

Only here could I ask this question!!!!!!!!

For all of you who've had your gall bladder removed via laproscopy, did you have any strange after effects with your belly button? I had it out mid-May and recently my belly button which is an innie, is acting like it wants to be an outtie and it's FREAKIN ME OUT! I am very skittish about my navel anyway but I feel like I can literally push my belly button back in.

Help!!!!!!!!!! I feel like there's an alien- it doesn't hurt but it is uncomfy!

Are you sure it's related to the gall bladder removal?

I ask bacause my husband has a herniated navel. It sounds like what you are describing.

His doctor told him that he should have it repaired, but that it wasn't urgent or serious. He's planning on doing it, but not right now.

Nope. My daughter and I both had our gall bladders removed laparoscopically, with no problems like what you are describing. My belly button scar is pinker and bubbly on one end, but it doesn't protrude.

I also had my gall-bladder removed mid-May by lap. No problems at all once I recovered from surgery and a couple of weeks for my system to adjust.

Hi Beverly. Just talked to Lynne today and she told me about this. I guess I missed this thread. I am glad you are having this fixed. Do, they also do this by Laparoscopicaaaly? You are having this done soon - right? Hugs

Hey Mtndog formerly Berneses! Wow, that stinks that you need another surgery! I thought of you when I read this post, and I thought....hmmm, just how many of us had mid-May gallbladderectomies.

Has living a gallbladderless life been as grand for you as for me? Sadly though the euphoria did subside....in my case probably terminated early due to some difficult doses of reality.

Ah yess...... some difficult doses of reality on this end too.

I can't get in to see the surgeon until October 2nd so I'm going to call my primary tomorrow and see if she can call the surgeon to get me in faster. It is a laprascopic procedure but I'm bummed that I have to have a surgery again. Oh well.

I've had a head cold and I look like an idiot as I have to put one hand on my tummy and one over my mouth every time I cough, sneeze and laugh. I feel like a demented Santa Claus. :P

I always wondered what was on the other side of your belly button, now I wish I didn't know. :ph34r: Good thing I got my nose pierced and not my navel. Ouch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :unsure:

Hey Beverly -- I had my belly button pierced with Ashley when she was 16. It was back when I was wearing a size 7 (I'm 6'1"). After having a 9lb 13 oz, then a 9lb 6oz baby, it was like piercing a doggoned shar-pei!!!!! I told the girl to pick a wrinkle! Unfortunately, she picked up SEVERAL, and I couldn't find a belly ring to fit it (and it got infected and stayed that way for 4 weeks) so I had to take it out. Started feeling faint, so Ashley had to take it the rest of the way out for me. She, however, started gagging!

    • I would be very careful in giving this kind of advice, she is in an advanced stage. I was there and one additional symptom that I was getting was a strong urge to commit suicide so eating gluten for three months might not be the way to go for some people. If a gluten free diet stop the problems them gluten is the problem or a least part of it. I eliminated MSG from my diet because I notice that the common denominator for some products that affected my well being was MSG. I eliminated oats because I notice that I would get canker sores every time I ate it. Wheat is what affect my brain the most, irritability gets uncontrollable, my mental capacity greatly diminish, rash in my arms appear, can't sleep,etc. Barley makes my stomach groan, and constipated. Will try testing how Rye affect me some later time. 
    • Hi Aly and welcome You may want to repost this in a new thread, that way more people will see it and can advise you.  I think you would be much better off getting the celiac test now, if you stay off gluten you will need to go back on it and that can be much harder. That said, loads of your symptoms look like they could be gluten related.  I had a persistent 'trapped nerve' for instance under my eye which would twitch like crazy. Since I went gluten-free doesn't happen any more.  Best of luck! Matt
    • Your scalp sounds like seborrheic dermatitis. I have that and although its better after going gluten-free its very persistent. The dermatologist recommended Nizoral shampoo for it and it does help. I think dairy has a big part to play with skin problems, for me at least. 
    • I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu. I have yet to meet another celiac, so that tells you something about our limitations here. I work in Waikiki and do frequent Rouffage. It is nothing fancy, small place, but keeps me fed when I need something. I also like Greens and Vines. It is a vegan restaurant and worth every penny. Greens and vines sets up at the KCC farmers market on Saturdays too. Places in Waikiki that do offer a gluten-free menu include, PF Changs, Dennys, Big City Diner and California Pizza kitchen. I do not trust those places due to the risk, but they "offer" gluten-free options. I did try and order a beer at Yard House in Waikiki. They label clearly states that it contained wheat, so yeah sent that back with the waiter. I have also tied Doraku in Waikiki. I called ahead and spoke with management. That went well and they offer gluten free soy sauce. There is a deli at Down to Earth Grocery store in Honolulu that has gluten-free options, but the whole foods here do not offer hot food that is gluten free. They do have a hot food bar, but you have to stick to the whole plain salad and veggie options. It's good to hear the hotels here are getting better, beyond Waikiki hotels there is no one really interested in being gluten free.
    • Just found this site today. Did you ever find one? I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu.
