Had my gallbladder surgery on Wednesday. Overall everything went well. I did have a vasal vagal reaction to IV morphine in recovery that caused my blood pressure to go as low as 85/31. So that kept me in recovery longer than expected. They had to wait until my BP went up to at least 100 to send me back to same day surgery. I was pretty nauseated all that day and when I got home I got sick, but felt so much better afterwards. Each day is getting easier and my incision(the only one) at my umbilicus is looking pretty good. Today I even baked some muffins and cookies.

I've been taking it easy on food and I started out on clear liquids and have been progressing from there. So far there hasn't been any problems. My mom and I made some chicken/quail soup in the pressure cooker Thursday and that really hit the spot. I still don't have much of an appetite but that's allright because I can live off my reserve. :lol:

All the nurses and staff were great and they went the extra mile to ensure everything was safe for me to take. They even had someone from the pharmacy(they have an in house Walgreens) to come up and talk with me and to fill my scrips before I went home.

Glad it went so well and you are recovering nicely!
It's amazing how differently it is done now.

I had my GB out in 1985--"old school" style.
I have a zipper from my breast bone all the way down, taking a slight right around my belly button.
Old surgeon---- thought he was doing an exploratory in addition to the Cholecystectomy.

Took me weeks to recover. Ah, the "good old days" --not!

So glad you are on the mend!!!! :)

Thanks everyone. Still doing pretty good. I was sore last night but it might have had something to do with falling out of the desk chair. :o

I've been thrown by the riding lawn mower, but never a desk chair. Yowzers!

Be careful, Miss Roda, ;)
