Short of breath and pain in my back. Had gallbladder removed last week

I'm in pain and feel short of breath/winded. It feels like I have an elephant sitting on my back. Going to the docs isn't exactly an option as I have 2 3 year olds off nursery with D&V and there is no way I can take them with me. Is this normal?

Glad you've got sorted - I was concerned about PE given your symptoms. Take it the jabs are anti-coag (enoxaparin/heparin) - you may be on it a while. Hopefully you'll get home soon, and look after yourself (that's an order!)

When you had your gall bladder op were you in hospital more than 24 hours?

If so, were you given injections in your tummy afterwards?

Glad you are in safe hands. smile

No when I had my op I was kept over night but that was all.
