Ah, well, I guess I’ll just have to live without my gallstones after they’re removed. My mother had her gallbladder out in 1974, and the doctor offered her the stones. She didn’t want them.
Thank you, everyone, for the encouragement and support.30 October, 2007 at 4:25 am #84619

Eileen, praying for a good surgery and quick healing. I am sure you will feel much better in a short time. Prayers going out to you and your surgical staff. Let us know how you are afterward. Hug, purrs and love, Lynn30 October, 2007 at 1:31 pm #84623
Eileen, I am sending prayers for you and the surgeon. So glad to hear you didn’t have to have another round of tests, I know those GI series are horrible. Had my gall bladder removed when I was 20 years old. Doctors kept treating me for ulcers because no one so young and slim could have a bad gall bladder. An ulcer diet is almost the exact opposite of a diet for malfunctioning gall bladder. Finally after losing 25 pounds, and being in horrible pain for a long time, they decided to test. Shocked everyone. I can attest that you can live a normal life after the surgery, mine came out 43 years ago.30 October, 2007 at 2:07 pm #84624
My kid had hers removed last spring as an emergency so she had a few days in the hospital and a slower recovery. But you want to hear something cool? After my mom had hers out she was waiting for tests one day and heard two women talking behind her. One asked how the other was doing after having her gall bladder removed and the first one replied that she hadn’t had any migraines since then. My mom thought about it and realized her migraines diappeared when she had her gb out, too!30 October, 2007 at 2:11 pm #84625

Positive thoughts for you and your surgical staff. My dad had his removed last year at the age of 81… outpatient procedure, and was back on the golf course in less than a week.31 October, 2007 at 8:09 pm #84629
Well, TDKers, I’ll be leaving my office in about an hour to have a light supper, drink a bunch of fluids during the evening, then be NPO (nothing passed orally) after midnight. I can take my Prilosec and psych meds with a sip of water in the morning. I’m supposed to arrive at the hospital at 1:30 tomorrow afternoon, and, because the surgery is going to be done relatively late in the day, some folks think they might go on and keep me in the hospital overnight. A couple of people were concerned that I’d have to go without eating for so long, but eating really hasn’t been high on my list of things to do these days.
Because I don’t have a computer at home, I won’t be able to update you until I return to my office sometime next week. The last thing I’m going to do before shutting down here, though, will be to print out this thread so I can read it over and soak up all of your good wishes. Again, thanks so much for your support.
Here’s to TDK and health improvement!31 October, 2007 at 8:12 pm #84630
