Thank you for all the well wishes Ladies.
I went to the two week post op appointment on Monday. I'm partially "ungrounded" to limited activity for the next two weeks, but other than that all is healing well. The fall I took 3/23 didn't cause too much damage. The internal bleeding that happened after I came home is healing with a spectacular array of bruising on my lower abdomen.
The surgeon said the infection was pretty bad, if I didn't go to the ER when we did, the gall bladder would have ruptured due to necrosis & that has very good chance of being be fatal.
It scares me that I didn't have very much pain from the gall bladder itself, most of the pain was from the pleurisy. Had those two things not happened at the same time, I would have ignored the gall bladder pain until it was too late. Apparently, I have a ridiculously high tolerance to pain.
I am relieved that I can do more because I doubt that I could have stood being forced to take it easy too much longer, I was ready to climb the walls.
