Out! Darned Gall Bladder, OUT!

Tuesday, February 24, 2009

Well at long last, it's official...must have my gall bladder removed. My liver profile is WAY out of whack and there are multiple gallstones in my gall bladder. My doc says it is likely that the gallstones have been blocking things up and causing harm to my liver which will most likely reverse itself after the gall bladder is removed.

I'm hoping to be able to have my hernia repaired at the same time, as it has been bulging, but not causing any problems. I'm no fan of surgery, so if I can kill two birds with one trip to the OR I will be a happy camper!

Don't know yet when I'll have this done but will let you all know!

    Its always a relief to get some real answers and then some results from the doctors! I know it can be a challenge sometimes, a long drawn out process if you will. emoticon
