    Just wanted to tell you that my DD that just had the baby had emergency gallbladder surgery today. She had tons of stones, inflamed liver and pancreatitis. She was one sick girl. I've been at the hospital all day and I'm pooped.

    No quilting today :( ....had to throw that in so that this post would be legal :lol:

    So sorry to hear that. I hope she will be on the road to a speedy recovery very soon. My DD also had gallbladder removed after her 2nd baby, but not emergency. You (and she) must be mentally drained and physically exhausted. Sorry I am not nearer, or I would help you out... Keep us updated on her condition. Hope the baby and father are doing OK, too.

    Been there and done that about 2.5 years ago. I do feel sorry for her as pancreatitis is a really horrible thing to have.

    If she had keyhole surgery, she will recover quite quickly. However, tell her to take her own time as the surgeons' estimate that I would be fully recovered in 7 - 10 days was way out.

    Sadly, if it was not keyhole it does take much, much longer to get back to normal.

    Once she is on the road to recovery, she will start to feel really great, but do tell her to watch the fats. Many of us that are missing a gall bladder have problems with metabolising fats.

    Finally, your daughter is being well looked after and my experience was that my family and friends suffered more than I did.

    We are rooting for her and you

    I know others that have been through this. It will take time for her to get her strength back. She is so lucky to have you to help her out. I will add her to my prayers. Please keep us updated on her progress. Best wishes to all of you!

    Sooz, Crawl in bed and get a good rest, I bet you will be pretty busy for awhile. Hope your daughter has a quick recovery, sad to think of anyone having such pain.

    I had gall bladder surgery right after my daughter was born, too. That was 25 years ago. They said that the baby caused my gall bladder to not function properly because I am short bodied.

    Thanks everyone! She is home now and doing really well. The best part was while in the hospital they had someone come and help her apply for medicaid!!!! I'm so excited. Lets hope she qualifies. They said everything looked good and that she should. Next is WIC and we'll do that as soon as she feels up to it.

    Me....I just slept for 3 hours and feel worlds better. It is looking good for sewing tomorrow!! In fact... I may just run downstairs and at least hold fabric for awhile. Sometimes that helps :)

    I had pancreatits and gall bladder suregery about 5 or 6 years ago. I had the key hole surgery and it went well and my recovery was not long at all. Sure did gain the weight after that. So tell her to watch what she eats and how much. She no longer has the bile to help with degestion so it will be easy to gain weight. I was in the hospital for 6 days before they did my surgery as I was so yellow that they had to wait til the fever was down and the yellow went away before they did the surgery. The pancreatits is avery painful and I wouldn't wish it on any one and the Dr said I was very lucky I did not go into shock or any thng like that. Take care nad tell her I wish her well. Huggies, Fay

    I had pancreatitis from a stone getting stick in the bile duct and Dr. was shocked I wasn't in pain, I wasn't, had surgery and gallbaldder came out, had to spend the night, another stone lodged in bile duct and was antibiotics. Went back to work next day. I don't feel pain like most people.
    Dr. and surgeon said I could eat anything I wanted and I have.

    I can wince in sympathy. I still have trouble metabolizing fats after having this exact problem. It does seem to be more prevalent in women who have had children. On the very positive side she is not going to be doubled over asking someone to put her out of her misery now. Just slowly add fats back into her diet. Her body will have to learn to adjust to not having the gall bladder to regulate how much bile is dumped into the digestive tract at one time.

    I know this has worn you out as much as her. You might need to adopt the "new mommy" plan. Sleep when the kids sleep so you have energy do deal with the other stuff. Everything else is just a bonus.

    This, unfortunately, isn't that uncommon. The Dr. told me that after having the same thing happen to me nearly, 27 years ago, when my first born was born. He said it had something to do with the hormones that are rushing through your body when you are pregnant.

    The surgeon told us that he has removed gallbladders from 10 new moms this week!! And yes, he says it is the hormones.

    I had to have mine out between our two daughters births. Sadly I have had problems with fats too for 18 years now. Interesting because the surgeon says this happens in only 1% of the surgeries. I think it is much higher than this as this conversation so clearly shows!
