I had my RNY June 4th, and my gallbladder (open) on June 27th. It took me a while to recover, and I would hope that at this point, I would be completely recovered. Unfortunately, I still have some very chronic aching on my right side (where the gallbladder was removed) and it travels around to my back. It can be sharp and stabbing, depending on my position. It is difficult to take a deep breath in without hurting. I have taken the 2nd day out sick from work since my return a month ago. I have applied for FMLA-intermidant-for days like today. With the economy as it is, I dont' want to lose my position. Every night, I sleep with a warm back on my side and abdomen. I just don't know what could be wrong. THe labs, including my liver enzymes, pancreatic enzymes, CBC, and chemistry panels were all normal. And the CT scan was also normal. Has this happened to anyone else? What was it? Am I just slow to heal? Any ideas or support or nice words would be appreciated. Thank you!
