So... some of you know, others do not but I'm going to give this update today because it's pretty important.
I've been in and out of the ER for the past few weeks, I went again yesterday after getting horrible pain after eating.
They did a CT scan on me and I have gallstones and require surgery to remove my gallbladder.
I'm not sure when this is going to be scheduled and what all will happen with it because nobody in my family has had theirs removed, I'll be the first.
But I wanted to give everyone a heads up.
The good news is that the gallstones haven't caused an infection and I'm taking antibiotics now to try to prevent said infection and I'm on a very restricted low fat diet. I'm doing alright for now, the likelihood of a flare up with a low fat diet should be relatively low, but if I do have one they've prescribed me pain medication in the case that it does happen.
I'll keep you all in the loop on any other updates as we get the surgery planned and how my recovery is going once it's done.
And like... if anyone has had their gallbladder removed... I could really use some advice and reassurance that I'm not going to die... so please feel free to message me if you have and are willing to share advice.
Commissioners, please note I'm still working though commissions, it's just been horrible slow.
Between 40+ hours of work each week, several ER visits, and these almost constant pain flair ups I've been trying my best to keep pushing through. I hope you can all forgive me for this continued delay. Thank you for being patient with me still.
Love and Hugs,
