Recovering

I had surgery on Thursday to remove my gallbladder, and have been slowly recovering over the weekend. It was a laparoscopic, so I was in and out in just a few hours, with only four small wounds in my gut. I'm doing good, pain-wise, I haven't even needed the T3's the doctor prescribed. My biggest problem is exhaustion, I can't get up and do anything for long without getting really tired. I made it down to the corner store for more juice a couple of times, but the incision in my belly button gets really uncomfortable when I move around to much, So I won't be going very far for a while yet. Especially until my digestion settles down. They also partially shaved my stomach, and the stubble is really starting to itch.

I have a follow up with my doctor on Thursday and with the hospital doctor next Friday.

Ouch! Glad to hear you are on the mend. What happened to require surgery, that's kinda o.O stuff...

I had stones that were causing severe attacks. This was the first time I ever had surgery.

I sincerely hope this is the last time too - best wishes for a rapid and full recovery.

Glad you are doing well. Take it easy. I guess we won't see you out this Friday to games night. Maybe next week?

*hugs*

Urg, Tagg had that done a few years back, and it's no fun! Hope you feel better soon. *hugs gently*

Ouchies. >< Yeah that's gonna be uncomfortable until it closes up completely. Hang in there dude, and make sure the wound area stays clean as best as you can manage.

Just feel grateful the surgeons didn't decide to shave your hair into embarrassing shapes or pictures. x_x

Yeah, It a balance between keeping them clean, and keeping them dry, but they're good so far.

^_^ Well, they did only shave one side, so it does look weird.
