3 Tips To Prevent Discomfort And Heal After Your Gallbladder Surgery

by Ankita Srivastav Health Advisior & Consultant
Gallbladder surgery has now become very common. Almost every good hospital in Kolkata provides the service of gallbladder surgery. You might also get discharged pretty quickly, especially if it was laparoscopic surgery. But you might feel a bit discomfort after the surgery and you also need time to heal properly. Here are three tips to prevent any discomfort and will also help you to heal quickly. 

Give Yourself Time To Heal

Every person’s body takes a different amount of time to heal. Your body will usually take 1-3 weeks to recover fully from gallbladder surgery. You might experience belly pain, sore throat, bruising and pain at the incision site, nausea and vomiting and in some cases pain in your upper back and shoulders. This pain may take you at least a week to fully recover from. During all these, you need to rest and take your medicines properly. Only then, you will be able to heal properly with time. Don’t become impatient and follow doctor’s orders. 

Keep Moving

On the one hand, it is recommended for you to take rest as much as possible, but after a certain point, you will need to start moving. Usually, a gallbladder surgery patient should have complete rest for 24 hrs or as recommended by the doctor after coming home. after that, you will need to get up and walk as often as possible. The more you will be active, the better your recovery will be. But don’t overdo it. Your body will let you know when you have reached your limit. The only thing you need to be aware of is to not lift anything heavy for at least the first six weeks. Your incision site needs to heal properly before you try to lift anything heavy. 

Modify Your Diet

The very first thing you need to do after surgery is to modify your diet. Several things that you might have loved to eat before will need to be removed from your list. These normally include food that has fat. Fried or fatty foods can lead to abdominal cramping and diarrhoea. Your diet should consist of low-fat foods which are high in fibre that includes fruits and vegetables, whole grains, healthy proteins, beans, peas, lentils, etc. Remember to eat your meals only in
small proportions throughout the day.

These tips will make your life easy after your gallbladder surgery. Always look for the best hospital offering gallbladder surgery in Kolkata.
