Fibro, surgery & avoiding a flair

Jan 22, 2018 8:04 PM

My gall bladder is diseased. The doctors want to take it out. My fibro has been out of control for several months. Has anyone with fibro had surgery without causing a flair? I’m just sick about this. I was so bad for so long that the idea of volunteering to even possibly go back there is more than I can handle.

I have had 2 surgeries and I felt no different than I did prior just more pain but in different area. Mind over matter... I suggest you ad something like a book or painting drawing coloring. While you recover. I have triggers but I use my art to escape the pain. Get plenty of rest and let your body heal. Most people get bored with recovery and getting your mind busy helps, helped me a lot and everyday.
