One of the most exciting things however, is that I ate ALLERGEN FOODS! It's funny because everyone I talked to after surgery, including several doctors, said that my gallbladder could have been causing my food allergies. I just didn't really believe it and then something compelled me to take a bite of a gingerbread twix at the craft fair on Friday (I never cheat by the way) and I didn't get sick, didn't get a rash. Later that night I ate a little bit of cheese at Outback! So far I've tried a bite of twix, the outback cheese, mozarella cheese, eaten a whole bag of m & ms, half a mcdonald's hash brown, and then had cheddar cheese twice yesterday. So far I only had a few stabs from the mozarella but everything else has been fine. Before, if cheese even touched something I ate I would break out in hives on my face, legs, and hands, likely throw up, be sick for days, and look like I had two black eyes. Obviously I'm over the moon :)
I'm just hoping that all of this sticks because it would be amazing to eat like a regular person again. People don't realize how much food plays into daily life until they can't participate anymore. Now before I sound too crazy, I actually know an acquaintance that had food allergies before his gallbladder was removed and is now fine. Apparently my husband told me right after surgery but I had no recollection haha!
