I thought it would be prudent to make a post on here about my upcoming surgery. You’ve all heard me complain and bitch and moan about the ridiculous pain that I get put through from this gall bladder/gall stones problem that I have. Well, on July 18th I’m getting my gall bladder taken out.
Some people have asked me if I’m scared about the surgery. Honestly, I’m not scared as much as I am anxious, you know? I have never had surgery before so I’m not quite sure what to expect, but I know that the Doctor seemed really nice and helpful at our meeting yesterday and his staff was top notch (not rude and nasty like at some doctor’s offices).
In any event, the Doctor believes that I will be able to get the surgery done in the morning and be home by the afternoon or early evening. Also, I should be able to eat anything that I want (within reason) the next day and I should really only need a week or so after the surgery to be back to 100%. I’m definitely looking forward to being able to re-expand my food intake because I’ve been extra conservative with it lately – pretty much toast and tomato soup for me…and even the tomato soup has been bad for my stomach lately! Actually, I had some rice and carrots last night, but I had to stop eating it halfway through – it was way too bland!
So if any one has ever had their gall bladder removed before, make sure you contact me to let me know what I’m in for. Other than that, I’ll give it my best to be up on the blog every day posting what’s going on!
