I just had gallbladder removed on July 31st. I have four incisions that were sewn together with dissolvable stitches. I just found out disturbing news about my grandmas health and really want to smoke marijuana. I am not a habitual smoker so it only takes 2-4 small puffs to get me high. Is it on for me to smoke or should I steer clear?
My mom had her gallbladder removed as well as a small part of her liver last week due to a cyst and a benign Tumour. I am wondering if it s okay for her to smoke pot to help with her nausea? She hasn t been able to keep much for food down since her surgery and her nausea medicine isn t helping.
Is it possible for your body after a trauma (like surgery) to remember that pain and try to fix it. My friend had his gallbladder removed and it was very painful before surgery because of obvious reasons and prior because of the cutting into body. While in recovery marijuana was used and he said he felt a tingly sensation that felt good in the area that was in pain. So now that he is healed there has been marijuana use a couple times. That same feeling is felt where the gallbladder pain had been (upper abdominal into that back). He joked that it is kind of like a phantom limb type experience. My other friend said her boyfriend sometimes feels a tingly sensation where he had surgery on hernias. Though it is not confirmed if that feeling is with marijuana use. Anyways, I find it really interesting. Can you give any information for why this happens?

My daughter is a crohn's sufferer, diagnosed 12 months ago. She is on immunosuppressants and suffers repeat bladder infections. The crohn's itself is under control (we think) but today she is in pain again with an urgent need to pass water and there has been blood in her urine which has been absent with previous infections. She has mentioned her illness to doctors when getting treatment for "water infections" and they have been fairly dismissive of a link to crohns. The problem is we do not know what to expect if a flare-up occurs. Could this latest symptom (blood in her urine) be a symptom of flare-up or should we stop being concerned and assume it is another water/bladder infection? I would like her to go to A&E and get it checked but don't want to touble doctors unnecessarily.
I have had 3 c sections and since my last one 2 years ago I have had general discomfort in my lower mostly left abdomen. Lately I have had frequent urgent uncomfortable urination, with negative urine culture. Had renal ultrasound today that looked fairly normal I think. Wonder about scar tissue? Also I have ulcerative colitis but haven't had a serious flair in about 2 years.
