After a year or more of on-again, off-again chronic pain in my abdomen, I've had my gallbladder removed. Come to find out it was sick! This is a surgery I would not recommend. I'm left with 4 holes in my belly and forced to a strict bland, no fat diet. The positive is I've lost about 12 pounds.
I thank God for a capable surgeon who listened to me and allowed me to ask questions. Even more I thank God for a great wife who waited on me and helped me whenever I needed anything. It will be 3 weeks this coming Monday and I'm just starting to introduce "real food" to my stomach again. I even mowed part of the yard today! Since my "episodes" seemed to occur every 6-8 weeks, I won't be able to confirm that this was all about my gallbladder for a few months. But I am already feeling better than I did prior to the surgery, so I'm very hopeful that this has taken care of all my issues I've been enduring over the last 14-16 months.
