I had GB removed Jan. 5th 2010. Was sick as a dog prior to it for a few months. The surgery itself was a cake walk, pain didnt even require an advil or anything. However, I have had at least 3 nasty bouts of what felt like another GB attack even though its gone and half a dozen other attacks lasting for 3-5 days at a time with nausea and abdominal discomfort. Doc said it can take up to 6 months and after seeing the posts in here I guess I can take that. I have been given Zantac for the acid reflux c**p I have developed. But its hard to eat or take pills when you feel miserable. The only time I feel great is when I’m sleeping, lol. Anywho, I had 108 stones and the GB removed. Checked a few weeks later for additional stones and none. All my bilirubin level tests have been normal. I know it has to get better…I can’t live like this forever. Seriously, I cannot. I need to be able to work. So far I have been unemployed with this c**p for over a year. I can’t hold a spot when I am sick every other week for days at a time. Considering getting on SSI or disability or something. Doc said I’m not crazy, but depressed and I can go along with that too. Gave me an anti depressant to take now. Gonna start it this week. Blarg. This is not fun. Sex life is down the drain cuz of feeling like c**p all of the time. Marriage is suffering now. What the hell are we supposed to do? If I am not doing better in 3 months, what then? Sorry needed to vent a bit.
