Sorry to hear about all your troubles. I can tell you from my own surgery experience (I had my GB out Feb 23/05) that things seemed to have gotten worse before they got better. I had the constipation for almost a week, then some very hard BM's, then some liquid ones. Only thing I can say is that your body is still recovering and it's not an easy thing to get over. I had lots of pain after surgery, remember that your muscles and tissues are all torn and cut up. I had pain for at least two weeks after my surgery, and it was quite strong pain -I stopped taking pain meds after day 4 b/c they constipated me and made me sick. From what I've read here, if you had any type of leakage of bile, you would be extremely sick, fever, vomiting etc. Possible that there was a stone still in the bile duct, which would give you similar pains like u were having an attack... It's true that the gas they put inside you makes you feel very sore and bloated, and it can take several days before it comes out of your body. You know your body best, so if you feel like something is really wrong, then a trip to the ER just to check things out wouldn't be a bad thing -better safe than sorry. Hang in there though, I'm sure you'll start to feel better in a couple of weeks. Don't over exert yourself, take it easy, and try to eat "light". Remember that it's a whole new digestive system without your gallbladder and you have to reintroduce foods slowly. I wish you all the best! Feel free to ask any questions you might have. Don't despair, recovery is slow, but once you start to feel a bit better, it will progress quickly.
