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,
I've never had it removed myself, but reading up, it looks like it'll be relatively imperceptible once you've recovered from the surgery. You may notice some changes in your digestion, but it'll be pretty manageable things that won't impede your quality of life.
Hope you get well soon. A friend of mine had gallstones removed when he was like 16 yrs old and he is perfect now.
My mother and Grandmother both had the same situation. They're fine and got back to work not too long afterwards so you should be fine.
My father got his gallbladder removed and everyone went ok with his surgery. I pray that everything ends up well for you too.
I am sorry to hear that Rose. I shall keep you in my prayers and I hope you have a speedy recovery.
I myself haven’t had my gallbladder removed but my bud Dez has, I don’t know anything about the surgery itself but he’s doing great now! He’s as lively and crazy as ever! I’m sure you’ll be perfectly fine, just hang in there! if you ever need to vent don’t hesitate to send me a note!
Thank you dear. It's good to hear your friend is doing well.
Oh ouch, hope you have a speedy recovery love
I hope all goes well for you.
