biliary disease, gallbladder deaths and other painful lessons

Monday, September 23, 2013

hi my friends- i am happy last week is in the past. rushed my son into hospital - the first time was a marathon eleven hours in emerge. they sent him home with a diagnosis of gall stones and some stress on liver.
the next day we rushed him back - he had high fever and was very yellow- he had a bilary duct blocked and bile was going thru his system. the pain was excruciating.
because he is so heavy - they did not want to do surgery - but they did a scope down from his throat- washed sludge out of the gall bladder as best they could and he was four days on nothing but iv antibiotics and saline.
FAT FAIR AND FORTY applies to the guys too!!
be warned - your body is a marvel and it WILL ATTACK YOU if you don't take care.

    I know what pain he was in. I had gallstones, sludge in my pancreas and finally my gall bladder removed about 20 years ago. The gall bladder attacks can be so painful! I hope he recovers quickly.

    My prayers go out to you.
    The only thing worse than having physical trouble is watching your child go through it.

    I had my gallbladder removed in December. Long story short I went through the bile leak twice and had two more surgeries. After 11 days in the hospital I lost 17 pounds. It was painful. Will pray your son finds health.
