The doctors were much more worried about the infection in my pancreas than they were about my gall bladder. But all is well and stable now.



holycrap! you had your gall bladder taken out "hot?" ~ we refused that option (sounds like you had laproscopic surgery, my on-call surgeon was a geezer who wanted to sliced me open like a honeybaked ham).

you definitely win Gall Bladder Wars!

Thanks again everybody. All is going well. I'm just dealing now with being tired and sore. Keeping my kids from jumping on me has been the greatest challenge throughout this whole thing!

Dogbytes: Fortunately, I was able to have the laproscopic surgery. I was told before hand though, that there was a very good chance they would have to open me up anyway during the operation, but I wanted it out! Thankfully, it wasn't needed. I now have a 2" opening from my belly button down, and 4 other 1" openings in other places where they stuck in lights and other instruments. The surgery went well, but they put me on massive doses of antibiotics to deal with the infection, and pretty huge doses of morphine to deal with the pain. My surgeon was excellent and the staff treated me like a king with the huge exception of the food which I would not even feed a starving dog, it was terrible!

J$: Does it hurt you when I press...here?

Thanks again everybody for cheering me up. Now, where are my carving tools?...

Hey Finik glad you got no more Stinky Gallstones. I went thru the same pain in the emergency room but they didn't find out what it was. I didn't have gallstones but they finally figured out my g-bladder was full of Sludge and then they took it out and I was fine.
The worst part is over so be a good boy and don't carve for at Least 5 hours. Really glad you are feeling better and on the mend.

Best wishes, but PLLEEESE drink alot of water. Any type of surgery especially abdominal is very damaging to your system, just the drugs alone can throw you off balance for a while, just do your best to flush yourself out with a bunch of water.
Water a must, everything else in moderation. Dawn

I don't even know where my gall bladder is or what it does. I hope I never do. What is gall and why do I have a bladder full of it?

Hope yours is holding its gall normally again and for the rest of your life.

Oh, finkdaddy, what a scare -- I'm so glad to hear you're doing well. Infections in the gut are no small matter, pretty scary stuff. Thank goodness you're on the back end of it all now, and I hope you continue to heal well, and heal quickly.

I just wanted to give my sincere thank you to everyone for making me smile and feel loved (did I just say that? Percoset rules!). But seriously, Thank you.

Ah yes....ye ole' gallbladder attack!!! Been there...done that, don't miss it at all. My attack came on fast, sick as a dog, had a full blockage, had to have IV anti-biotics for the infection, stayed in the hospital over night, then they removed it the next day and I was home that night.

Gallbladder....who needs em!!!

Hope you are feeling better.
