My Bolshie Husband
Dave was so lucky to have a wife like you Maisie.
I had keyhole for gall Bladder, externally it looks really good but they still maybe cutting through muscle and other tissue etc so was warned the internals will be delicate for up to 6 weeks, no driving for 2 weeks as a sudden emergency stop could have the seatbelt doing a lot of damage due to its positioning. I think I was in for 2 days.I hope that Mark makes a quick recovery. With keyhole surgery they often let you home the same day now.
Yip I spent a lot of time in bed for the 1st week and then slowly recovered from it, the pain for me was more like if I had just done 100 sit ups for the 1st time and the muscles aching from it. The bigger problem I had was the `toilet` eat a meal and find the nearest toilet that took about 4 months before my digestive system eventually adjusted, fine now though.I too didn't make the quick recovery they lead you to believe it will be. The pain however was not where my gallbladder had been removed, but at the top of my leg/groin area.
