I had my gallbladder surgery back in June. I still have pain when I breathe in deeply - it's a sharp pain where I think my gallbladder used to be. Has anyone experienced this before?
Also, I had internal bleeding after my gallbladder surgery and my surgeon can't explain why that would happen, just that I am one of the rare percentages. I had to have a blood transfusion. Has anyone else experienced this?
Alecia, I am sorry that you had problems with your surgery. Mine was relatively easy and so was recovery. It was my symptoms after surgery that were troublesome.
I would wait about 4-6 months to begin cleansing your liver. It is full of stones as you will find as you flush. Are you following some of the recommendations regarding diet and fats. There are lots of links and reading to do to help educate yourself.
Good luck and feel free to ask questions any time.
If you had internal bleeding, you may have scar tissue from where the bleeding irritated the delicate internal tissues, and the body reabsorbed the blood. Scar tissue does not have the same elasticity as normal tissue and so pulls causing pain and discomfort.
The abdominal cavity has fewer nerves than other areas of the body, and so gives vague symptoms vs the more specific information the skin would give, if disturbed, for example.
A chiropractor or cranialsacral therapist can stretch that tissue, if that is what it is, and perhaps alleviate your pain.
I'm curious f you have laprascopic surgery, because I've read that this is somewhat of a common problem because surgeons can sometimes not fully close you, or nick another organ. I still have pain where my GB was. I actually had an attack about a month after my GB was removed! They never tell you those things before they rip your organs out. I have read that sometimes stones can form in the nub/stump left from the GB, or liver stones can travel to that spot and get stuck. Another issue may be that you just aren't producing enough bile. That's my theory, anyway. I drink Peppermint leaf tea when I start feeling the pain, and it generally helps, because it enduces bile production.
