throwing-up

I am eight days past laproscopic gallbladder surgery----I am recovering from the surgery but I still get some nausea and diahrrea once a day---yesterday I almost felt normal, but today, the nausea is there---almost feels like reflux----before my surgery I had CT scan, abdominal ultrasound, HIDA scan and endoscope---all normal except HIDA and endoscope showed slight inflammation (of course I hadn't eaten in over two weeks because of severe nausea----all bllod work for pancreas and liver has been
I started out with just heartburn, then the pain, and then I began to throw up my toenails. I swear I was throwing up black bile, thats what it looked like!! I took 4 Aleve, 4 Excedrin, 4 Advil, and 2 Bayer. Nothing helped!!! My heart felt like some one had shoved a 2x4 through my chest and left it there. Needless to say I was sick all the next day (Sunday) and tried to go to work Monday. Couldnt do it so I went to the doctor and pleaded" make it stop hurting!!
Since then about every 6 months I get a stomach ache and bloating after which I throw up until I throw up bile. I have been told that this happens if I eat too much of the wrong foods and my existing bladder can't handle its digestion protocol and it goes into a spasm. After I throw up the overproduced bile I feel great until my next episode. Lately these episodes have been increasing in frequency and I'm getting more confused as to what foods I should not eat.
My husband had lapriscopic gallbladder surgery on the 6th of July, ever since he has had a nautious feeling and sometimes does throw up, says he feels weak, been back to the Dr. and he says everything is fine, healing is fine. If he is fine why is he having these symptoms?
I don't understand why I have the pain in through my back either, especially since it has been there since I woke up from the surgery. Maybe they can tell me something after the scope this Thursday. Good Luck!! Janice S.
I would suggest that you do have someone be with you the first 24 hours after your surgery to lift things, help you up to go to the bathroom if you need to, etc. After that, I did laundry, dishes and stuff. Good luck to you. Keep us posted.
YES, I USUALLY DO NOT EAT ALOT OF FATTY OR GREASY FOODS ANYWAY. WHEN I THROW UP, I AM BRING UP JUST A BROWN FEATHERY SUBSTANCE. I ASSUME IT IS TEA OR SODA. SOMETIMES, I HAVE EATEN BEFORE I GET SICK, SOMETIMES NOT. NO, I AM NOT HAVING DIARRHEA. IF ANYTHING IT IS THE OPPOSITE. I HAVE HEARD PEOPLE DO AFTER THIS SURGERY SOMETIMES, AND AT FIRST, I WAS HAVING TROUBLE WITH THAT, BUT NOW I'M BACK TO "STOPPING UP".
Most of the time the pain would get so bad that I would throw up and couldnt really do anything because I was in so much pain. Then over a year ago I started getting other symptoms with my stomach like nausea, sometimes vomiting, belching, acid indigestion. Somedays I was horribly sick and I would still get the random pain every few months. Went to several doctors have had several tests done an ultrasound on my gallbladder, x ray of my stomach and everything was fine.
Anyone who is experiencing such pain after gallbladder should never give up on getting the right diagnoses. It is terrible to go to Drs for help only to come out with the diagnoses of IBS which is so way off from this pain.
Now I had bad shoulder pains from where they blew me up so expect that too the next day after surgery. I have had a c section and the Laproscopic surgery was half of that for me. I had a great medical team so i did not get sick from the surgery and they kept ahead of the pain with pain killers. Now i feel so much better and have not had any trouble and hope i dont like some of you. I have lost 8 pounds since Oct 25th and I dont have the urge to eat every hour. I have to make myself eat.
I would usually get sick 3-4 hours after eating something that was fatty. I would dryheave, throw up, or have horrible burping attacks. Also, I would get right shoulder pain. My gallbladder was inflamed with stones. A doctor could see this on an ultrasound. Best of luck to you and hope you feel better soon!
The doc is putting off the surgery because the rate of problems after GB surgery for a lowered ejection fraction with NO stones is causing a lot of difficulty in the GI community. Post surgical problems seem to be showing up more and more, and a condition called SOD (sphincter of Oddi dysfunction) seems to be 'uncovered' in a lot of cases after the GB is gone. It's very possible that SOD may be the thing that was causing the pain the the first place. Big problem?
I have pain in my right abdomn, right below my rib cage. I don't actually ever throw up, or haveing anything come up. I just feel like complete crap after I eat, no matter what it is. Not to metion, I LOVE FOOD from pizza to hot wings to my mom's chicken and brocollii casserole. I can't enjoy food anymore, I dread the thought of eating because I know how I'm going to feel afterwards.
When asked what white glob was no reply, just scheduled the gallbladder removal.I opted not to have gallbladder removed, changed diet, exclude dairy along with limiting fats.Avoid trans-fats and get fat from coconut oil, olive oil, butter, canola oil. Continue to see a white glob in my stool.Without going into the poorhouse with diagnostic/medical procedures is there any way a better diagnosis can be done with out all the costly testing?
Once liquids or a diet is tolerated, patients leave the hospital the same day or day after the laparoscopic gallbladder surgery. Activity is dependent on how the patient feels. Walking is encouraged. Patients can remove the dressings and shower the day after the operation. Patients will probably be able to get back to normal activities within a week's time, including driving, walking up stairs, light lifting and work. In general, recovery should be progressive, once the patient is at home.
My gallstones were more like marbles then the ordinary pea gravel kind, and I was set up for surgery immediately. Once any kind of stone gets hung up in the ducts it will trigger a attack and cause symptoms ranging from, diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, pain from the gallbladder region, back pain, and severe heartburn. I had it removed laparoscopically. They go through your belly button and make several small incision on your abdomen. The recovery time is much faster this way.
It was no where near my SOD pain, but it also was not attached to my digestive system anywhere as yours is. I ended up having to have a c-section type of surgery to have my ovary removed (it was a large hard mass.) I hope you don't have a bad attack in MI - good luck!
Hi, While I am not a doctor, I will do my best to answer this question -- hopefully one of the awesome doctors on here will answer with certainty though! I just had my gallbladder removed yesterday, and nothing was said to me about any limitations in regards to the clips.
's have thought it still might be my Gallbladder even though the tests did not show it.I had the surgery 12 days ago. After surgery,the Dr. said she found my duct at an acute angle and that could have been the problem. I returned this past Tuesday and my pathology reported the gallbladder to be "blue-gray to green and wrinkled;mucosal surface is pink-tan,bile stained;cystic duct is pin point and measures .1 cm with average mural thickness is .
I just had another surgery to deal with the adhesion problem. They kept on coming back after gallbladder surgery in 1998, and since then I have averaged one surgery a year for that one problem. The trick is to treat the symptoms of pain, nausea and vomiting for as long as possible before resorting to more surgery. Why? Because more surgery causes more scar tissue. At some point, the surgery becomes more dangerous and problematic than a cure.
One--I had 2 m/c (feb, apr 2006) and read progesterone of pregnancy can kick up gallbladder problems. Has anyone else had gallbladder issues while pregnant or after miscarrying. Two--I am of course now wondering if this could have caused the m/c (around 6-8 wks both). Three--any reports on life without a gallbladder? I don't know how long they will make me wait to TTC either. Just one more thing I dont need!
I actually found out i had gallbladder stones right before i found out i was pregnant, actually i was going in for surgery and the day before they called me and said nope you cant have surgery you are preganant. Yeah sorry to say that there isnt really anything you can do. Kazwel is correct avoid fatty foods and for me i have to avoid spicy food as well. If i want to have something fatty i try to have it ealier in the day.
After over a month, nothing changed, symptoms were still the same so he bumped me up to two a day. After about a week of taking it twice daily, my symptoms appeared to go away, but not for long. After maybe a couple months they reappeared and worse than ever. I have bloating now EVERYDAY and constantly. The pain comes and goes depending on the day. Sometimes i get pain on my left side as well. Maybe due to the bloating??
The one thing they all have in common after surgery is an intolerance for fatty foods. The gallbladder usually breaks this down, but when it malfunctions, you get the pain, vomiting, etc. They don't have pain or vomiting, but they do get diarrhea if they eat too many high-fat foods. I don't think cancer or early menopause has anything to do with it.
Well by the third day i was in such terrible pain i couldn't even move without crying out in pain and i started running a really high fever and shaking and throwing up really bad so my husband took me to another hospital within 30 minutes of being there they had given me morphine and was wheeling me up to emergency surgery after the surgery they told me my gallbladder was so badlyinfected if had even just waited one more day to come in me and baby would've died!!
I never have the really bad pain when I'm up and moving around...it typically wakes me up at night, when I'm obviously laying down sleeping. I'm just at a loss. The radiologist basically made me feel like an idiot today and told me my pain is "absolutely not" my gallbladder. I won't get to talk to my doctor until Monday, but I am *hoping* anyone out there may have experienced something similar or has any type of advice.
The test they do is an ERCP with man-something (they measure the pressure in the valve). some people have a problem with delayed stomach emptying after surgery. After watching my daughter go thru all this..i know..it sucks to be so young and be sick....hang in there...good luck.
