Hi Bernadette, yes I had my gallbladder out. I had it done with about
5 small incisions, laproscopically. I thought that something was wrong with my right kidney. I was having horrible pain at night and would get up and lay on the floor and stretch thinking it was maybe muscles too. NOPE, it was gall stones. Small ones but boy it hurt! The doctor said it can caused flank pain which is what made me think kidney. It was not a bad surgery other than I got so sick from the anitistetic (sp) that I had to stay overnight. That did hurt, so from then on I always had the patch behind the ear. That helps with the sickness.
Hang in there, and I am glad you are getting some answers and it is not you heart!
Hope you have a Merry Christmas!
It's only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth -- and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up, we will then begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it was the only one we had.
