My gallbladder surgery was last Thursday. The surgery went well. The doctor used the daVinci robotic arm which meant only one small incision just below my belly button. I had to spend one night in the hospital because of the nausea from the anesthesia and pain, but by Friday morning I was well enough to go home.
Since then, I've been taking it easy on the sofa with an occasional trip out to get fresh air and to move around. I still need help getting up and down and the other day, a sneeze took me by surprise and I couldn't prepare for it and it really hurt. But I haven't been needing as much medicine for the pain and not much of the stronger stuff at all.
Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers. I was only a little nervous about the surgery and as I was being rolled in to the operating room, I felt totally peaceful.
I'm so glad my gallbladder is gone and I can start getting back to my normal life.
