Wow-you are one tough Cookie!! I guess after what you've been through, sleeping in your own bed, is the best medicine. Take Care, and try to Rest Up and don't over-do it!!

So glad to hear it went well and that this era of gall bladder attacks is behind you! Rest up, stay ahead of the pain, and feel better soon!

Rest and take it easy. You'll up and going in no time.

When I had my taken out, the key was to sleep slighly upright so that I didn't have to put as much work into getting up. Mine was done Lap as well, I just didn't realize how much you use your trunk (core) to do anything.

Yay!!! It's over. Finally. You can put those gall bladder episodes behind you now. Thank Goodness. Sounds like everything went well. Although am I hearing that you didn't get it done laproscopically? Regardless, it seems as if everything went smoother then smooth. Here's hoping your recovery does the same and then some. You are quite the trooper! Rest. Take care of you and before you know it, you will be up and running......
