I have been away. It was last week on Tuesday, that I had surgery. In December and January, I was having pains in my abdomen. It wasn't my usual Ulcerative Colitis pain, or flare up. The pain lasted from 24-36 hrs and I just stayed in bed. I saw my GI and he suspected gallstones. I had an ultrasound done and it was gallstones. I never felt that pain before- it was in the center between by chest, by the sternum. The pain was so intense that the first time it happened I woke up from sleeping. The pain was also in my back. I had my gallbladder removed. I was worried about stomach issues since I have read from others that they were having bathroom and stomach pains. I can actually say, I feel better. Yeah, the surgical site hurts, but over all I feel a difference. I am slowly getting back to "normal" as I can be. Watching my 2 girls, I did not get the prescription of meds. I just took 2 Tylenol as need for pain. I felt for me it was too risky to take them since I need to be "aware" watching my kids. I hope to catch up later this week and post my pictures from my Shrimp Toast.
