Diagnosis Gallstones

Ok the results are in and it is gallstones. So I will get a referral to a surgeon next week. We go from there. I am, in a way, relieved to know what it is. But still nervous about the surgery. I have heard it is same day surgery. Which would be great. I am going to limit my food intake until then. I just dont want to take any chances. I will load up on water and keep a troddin on. I did work out yesterday and it was good. I will go to the gym tomorrow. I feel like I am slowly getting back to myself again. The weight seems to be goin down which I am happy about.Today I was told nothing to eat or drink for 6 hrs prior to test. After my test I went to Walmart, Costco and a grocery store. By the time I was in the grocery store I starving and dying of thirst. I picked up a coke zero for the ride home. While I was shopping the temptation to pick up a quick snack was just incredible. I looked at a little Debbie pie and I thought what could one do to hurt me? I startled myself on how quick my fat ways can ease back into my life. I literally cussed myself out and of course I did not stoop so low as to buy anything to snack on. I drank my zero on the ride home. Put everything away, drank a bottle of water, than another one. I cooked a lean cuisine and made my shake. You know I dont think I could have handled the guilt of cheating and the gallstones all in one day. I am glad I was strong.

Gallstone surgery is much better than it was even 15 years go. It's fairly non-evasive and it's often outpatient surgery. You'll do fine and be healed in no time. Cheers, Rick

the surgery is not bad at all. I was up and about within a few hours.

Great job on not getting a snack! You go, girl!

I had my gallbladder removed about 5 years ago, and all I have to show for it is 3 half-inch scars -- not bad at all, and was only in the hospital overnight because my surgery was late in the day. Best of luck to you!
