    Hi guys
    I’m 15 years old and a few weeks ago I got my keyhole surgery to remove my gallbladder.its been 4 weeks and 2 days. I stayed in the hospital for 4 days and was giving morphine to reduce the pain. While I was there I used to take it every 5 minutes cause the pain was really bad. A week later I was given codeine and took that for a week. I’ve realised i find it difficult to remember things and with exams coming up it’s been more stressful. I feel like the more I try to remember things the more I start to feel dizzy and get a bad headache. I don’t know what to do especially with mocks coming up. Any suggestions on what to do

    probably the best thing to do is to speak to your doctor.

    If you're still on or have just stopped the meds that's probably the reason. Also potentially a bit of dehydration/ lack of food if you've been feeling unwell and not eating and drinking as much as you should.
    Best to have a chat with your GP to be safe and see if they have any suggestions, but I wouldn't worry.

    If your exams are close you might also like to speak to your school/ college to see if they can help you out at all. I missed a bunch of content before my GCSE exams and after speaking to school a teacher helped me go over things at the end of the day. You might be able to get some support too.
