Gallbladder Gone

I'm going to try & blog this through pain meds...Let's see how this goes. Tuesday, I had my gallbladder removed. Mom & D were with me & I was actually at peace all morning. I had been so nervous, up until then. They called me back & got me set up for surgery. My surgery was over before it was scheduled to begin. The only time I had an issue was when I go to the OR & they strapped my body down, legs, arms & all, then put the oxygen mask on me, I felt like I was suffocating, I told them I was freaking out, a nurse & 2 doctors came over to calm me down. Next thing I knew I was in recovery. I dealt with such extreme nausea in recovery. They said they normally give 12 cc of phenergan. They gave me 55 cc's! And I was still nauseous.
I was so thankful that I didn't have to spend the night in the hospital. I was worried about that, because I have never had to do that before!
I have been home in bed since, Of course getting up to walk around has been a good thing. I'm not allowed to do anything for a few weeks until I go for my post op appt.
I just glad that thing is out & I have to learn to eat differently. I'm down 59 pounds, so far. I sure as heck don't want to allow that weight loss go to waste. So my eating habits will for sure change.I'm going to have to learn what works for me. I've had so many people tell me different things. SOme went right back to eating like normal, while others had issues. I still have to go see an ENT when I'm healed up to see about my swallowing issues. All I know is that I am ready to feel better. 2015 has been a real kicker for me in the health department.
