I hope and pray nothing serious is going on. I just wanna get normal again. I know people here have said their nausea went on for months and that made me feel better, now since I've talked to the nurse I don't feel as good anymore. thanks for all the replies though!

Zofran tip - If you have been taking Zofran 4mg, ask for Zofran 8mg ODT (Oral Dissolving Tablet) and ask for a 2nd Med if Zofran is ineffective alone.

My wife went through chemo, nausea sucks but there are many ways to treat it




Usually the "number" associated with running a fever would be 100.4, if you are having a post op infection maybe they will just check with a blood draw.

I don't think it's a post op infection cause it's been going on since before the surgery while they were doing a lot of blood work. they said it could be because of the gallbladder not working, just my.bodys reaction to it. that after surgery it should go away but it hasn't. I wanna say I have allergies, not sure to what, but especially in the mornings I have runny nose, watery eyes, dry cough, headache and sometimes this low grade fever. not sure what it is but its been going on before my surgery. been taking claratin but hasn't mad it all go away. will bring it out tomorrow at Dr but my main thing is my nausea.

just wanted to update people. went to Dr and saod that it could be that my body is so used to being sick for so long that it just doesn't realise it doesnt need to be sick. she said it.could take 4-5 weeks to resolve but in the meantime quit taking 3 of my medicines. perscription prilosect and omega 3 becausw i started both of thise right before the nausea started and metformin because it could also cause nausea and other symptoms. she gave me more zofran and said try taking one before I go to bed and see if that helps, but also have me another prescription in case the zofran doesn't work. in 2 days I will be 3 weeks post op, so if it takes 4-5 weeks normally, I'm hoping I see some improvement soon. if nothing helps they made an appointment for a gi specialist in January. hoping I don't have to go.

Let yourself heal. I know how horrible nausea is, it's way up there on my list of the worst feelings in life. If the medication isn't helping enough, you have to try something else. Sometimes it's something that sounds useless, like your posture. It's very easy to squish that upper stomach area if you hunch over, so try to be straight, especially when you eat and for a bit after. Take some long, deep breaths because it can relax your muscles in case you're tense (worrying about getting nauseous). Even if it sounds stupid to you, sometimes a little thing can make a big difference. Stress and fear do awful things to you and if you can let them go for a minute, you can feel a lot better.

I hope you get to cancel that January appointment, too. Let us know.

I go back to the Dr tomorrow as a check up, but so far I feel better since I've got off those meds. gonna talk to Dr tomorrow about the appointment but hopefully I won't have to go. I'm still feeling a little heartburn since I'm off that medicine but they said I can take an over the counter medicine. helps but not completely

Prilosec can cause bone loss and make them brittle. I never knew that until my pharmacist told me. So I stopped after taking it for 5 frigging years!
I cut back and rarely eat anything with gluten, no sodas, no spicey foods. Only thing I snack on is M&Ms and Cool Ranch Doritos (they are gluten free)...and lots of sweet green decaf tea. No more GERD! And..no more nausea. AND...stronger bones now that I stopped the prilosec and anything remotely close to it OTC.
Try going gluten free yourself and see if that helps. We don't have a gall bladder so our stomachs and intestines have to work extra hard to break foods down without the gall bladder to assist.

I hope you feel better soon. It sucks to feel icky for so long. Been there, done that.

I've done research that says many who have gallbladders removed take ox bile or other bile acid factors. I have my GB but I started taking the ox bile for my own bowel health. Interesting changes for me, good changes.

Hello,

I recently just got my gallbladder removed do to it not functioning well and I had one big gallstone. The day of the surgery I was fine just aching but today the day after the surgery I started a low grade fever which kinda bother because I feel cold and chiver a little. I am a little concerned, I looked it up and says it could be normal to get little low grade fever after surgery and so did my mother say because it happened to her after her gall bladder was removed. Anyone here had the same problem? Hope I feel better soon because I was already struggling with gallbladder for 3 months!

Thanks in advance
Laura
