Kimber,
Good luck with the consult! It really does sound like you need surgery, but still you can pick your surgeon. Did your doc give you a reason why he/she wanted you to see a different surgeon? Just curious.

Once that gall bladder is gone, you will feel much better - at least in terms of GI issues!

The good news is that if the surgery can be done laproscopically most people are 95-100% fully recovered in about 2 weeks.
2 confirmed herniated lumbar discs. Spinal Arthritis. Spinal Stenosis, diabetic peripheral nueropathy.
