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!

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
