I Survived Gall Bladder Removal!
0

15 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone- I went in today to have gall bladder removed and it went fine. i'm a little sore and tired but I woke up from the anesthesia hungry!

And I woke up to a lovely bouquet of orchids from my sweey hubby.

They did Reiki on me before surgery- reiki on the feet feels GOOD!

Thanks for all your prayers and good wishes, Beverly

I'm so glad for you! I was wondering if you had decided to go through with it. Guess what I had this a.m.?

An ultrasound on my gall bladder. Won't know what's what until next week though.

I'm praying all continues to go well for you.

Whoa...hey! I certainly didn't expect to see you for a couple of days. So they released you same day???? And you woke up hungry??? You and your surgeon are both pretty awesome :)

Oh, Bev, I'm so glad it went well for you! I just pm'd you thinking it would be a couple of days before you got on the forums.

Take care and continue the strong recovery! {{{HUG}}}

Don't overdo it.

hi I happy to know that you came out well from your surgery. I had my gallbladder remove on 5/5 and it took me longer to get better about a week just to move around.

I still can't pick up my one year old son.

    • I do think sunscreen could be an issue for people. I realize that it is only an issue if ingested. I have very pale children. We use thick zinc oxide and waterproof sunscreen. I apply it every hour or we will burn. I have it coating my hands at the end of every pool trip. We swim daily in the summer in a Texas. There is nothing else to do when it's this hot!  It takes me multiple hand washings to get it off my hands. Often times, while at the pool or beach, we eat - chips, watermelon, nuts etc. I assume it touches the food i ingest. Ours is gluten-free. 
    • I'm sorry I don't  In fact I just looked and only found this on the uk datasheet; So maybe I was wrong!
    • I am Catholic and I totally understand. At my home parish, there is a layman who has celiac.  He has arranged to have these hosts ordered from the Benedictine sisters of Perpetual adoration. http://www.benedictinesisters.org/ At the beginning  mass, anyone who needs a gluten-free hose can take it from the main receptacle and place it in a special pix.  The priest has them and they are consecrated and with the priest.    He is handling the gluten and the gluten-free host back and forth.  But, I talked to this fellow and he said that he has not had any symptoms of cross-contamination and he is fairly sensitive.   I am celiac but really don't get any obvious symptoms so I can't tell you if cross-contamination is an issue or not   I also partake in the wine,  but I try to sit in the first or second row( to be the first to drink the wine)  to limit cross-contamination.  I make sure to be aware if the priest Saying mass puts a small piece of bread in each chalice (then I do not partake.) psawyer is right though.  Consuming either form of  eucharist is adequate and acceptable.   Often times I just take the wine.   I have considered becoming a Eucharistic minister.  This would completely eliminate the possibility of cross-contamination. If you were the first person to drink from the chalice, there would be no chance of cross-contamination at all.  Traveling is tough.   I often times abstain when I am traveling  but many parishes now offer gluten-free hosts  so I'm sure you could research it  and contact the parish ahead of time. One of my best friends has Ncgs  and he can take the gluten-free host with no trouble.   I know a priest whose nephew is celiac in central Texas. . I haven't talk to him personally about the situation (just his SIL) but I'm sure  he would be happy to talk about it if needed.  I don't know what part of Texas you're in  but let me know.
    • Do you know the specific name of the wheat protein in Nizoral? Thank you!
    • Welcome to the community here. I am not Catholic, but have been a member here for many years, and a moderator for ten. This topic comes up from time to time. I am Episcopalian, similar in most beliefs. Talk to your priest. In my church, receiving one form of communion is sufficient to meet the obligation, so I usually just take the cup. I arrange with the priest to be first in line, lest the cup be contaminated from another communicant. For the wafer to qualify in the Roman Catholic Church, it must be made from wheat. There are some sources of low-gluten wafers, but I have no personal experience with the. The Episcopalian (Anglican) church allows a wafer that does not contain wheat.
