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.
