My wife has to go in on September 5th and have her gall bladder out. They’ve told her it’s an outpatient procedure now, and that it may take a week to recuperate.
I was wondering if anyone here has had the operation, and if you have any information I can pass on to her. Were you sore for a week? Did it leave a nasty scar? Did you have to take painkillers? Should she stay in bed? What amount of moving around is OK?
Stuff like that. Anything I can tell her to make it less scary and prepare her for what’s going to happen during and afterward will help a lot.
