Gallbladder follow up

It has been almost five weeks since having my gallbladder removed. I had my follow up appointment with the surgeon yesterday. He asked if I would like the gallbladder back and I told him, "No way. I can eat anything now." Apparently, I had lots of stones, scarring and inflammation. This led to the conclusion that the gallbladder has been sick for a very long time and I was lucky to have had only one attack. Before the surgery, I thought about canceling because I didn't think it was acting up. Now I know better. No more Maalox. No more upset stomach. I hadn't realized how much it was bothering me because the onset was gradual.

The doctor says I am healing very well and he lifted all restrictions on food and activity.

That's excellent news! I'm glad you're recovering so well after your surgery! :-D It's great that you haven't had an upset stomach since the surgery and that you can probably do without Maalox and cutting certain foods out of your diet. If you're noticing a difference now, I bet you'll feel it even more when you're completely recovered! :-)
Yup. It's wonderful. I doubt I'll notice anything more on the healing. All that's left is for the scars to fade. I just can't believe I didn't notice how much the gallbladder was bothering me. I am very happy I had it removed. Of course, both parents had problems and I am quite overweight, so it was not completely unexpected. That said, I feel great now.
