For those of you who had any kind of surgery involving your guts. Such as those of you who had 360s done. I am 2 days post-op from laparoscopic gallbladder removal surgery. It has been very rough. I seriously underestimated this whole process. I spent 5 days in the hospital after my 2 level fusion back in July, I dare say recovery from the gb removal has been as bad if not slightly worse than the back. I take my hat off to those of you who had the 360. I can only hope this turns around soon. I am so miserable.

  • Kelly Jo, so sorry you had to go through this. I hope you feel better soon. How is your back doing? I do think you will recover quicker from the tummey surgery than with your back, even though I know you are miserable now. Hugs and prayers coming your way, Cali-Sue >:D< O:) >:D< O:)
