Our expert says:
I am sorry to hear that you are still feeling so ill after your gallbladder operation and that you still suffer from pain. Because you can not do any exercise until the surgeon gives permission (not that you do any harm to your operation scar), I would recommend that you consult a clinical dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area). The dietitian will take a diet and medical history and work out a special diet prescription for you so that you start losing weight. Also keep in mind that you may be feeling very depressed after the op and that it may be a good idea to get some assistance from a clinical psychologist (ask your dr to refer you) so that your emotional balance can be restored.
I hope you will soon be feeling much better and that you now start losing weight.
