I had my gallbladder out 2.5 weeks ago. It was diseased - I didn't have stone, but it wasn't working properly and was causing lots of shoulder pain. So I got it removed. I was a little nervous about getting it removed, because it is surgery and surgery can't be undone. I was worried that the pain wasn't actually caused by my gallbladder and I worried that having the gallbladder out wasn't the right thing to do.
It was :) Since I have had it out I feel much better - no shoulder pain and I feel less sluggish in general. I know now that I made the right decision. My doctors also think my diseased gallbladder may be tied to me not losing weight. Time will tell on that one, I have a lost a few pounds post surgery but I think that is to be expected since I have not eaten much at all.
The surgeon told me not to workout for 4-6 weeks, other than walking. I am not really complying, since I am going to start working out again today - 2.5 weeks post surgery. I am going to go back to Body Pump today - I really really miss it! But I am going to take it a little easier than normal and probably won't do the ab workouts.
I am excited to get back to working out, even if I keep things low key for another week or two. My body needs workouts for stress reduction if nothing else.
Hope everyone has a great 4th!!
