Thursday I had my gallbladder removed. I'd say I feel better but right now that would be a lie. I do look better. My skin is no longer a sickly yellow that it has been for almost a year. I'm now in the bloom of pink to my cheeks once more.
Due to my adhesions the surgeon couldn't do the normal four-five cuts on the right side. He had to do one cut under my xiphoid process, another two off to the left, 1 just above my naval. Two look to be infected already but it is hard to tell under the layers of glue.
The strapping pain from the gas is the killer. My shoulders hurt so bad. I gained roughly 8 pounds from the gas and fluids of surgery and have 3 more to shed. I had been losing weight before the surgery and eating healthy. I was already down to a size 14 and working towards a size 12. Right now the only thing comfortable is sweat pants.
We aren't going to Korea as a family. Do to the mess with the N.K leader the area I would have gone to is now not allowing family members. For now E is enjoying her time with daddy.
Ugh I need to go lie down again. My arms are killing me.
