((((((Patty)))))))), I knew you must be feeling very bad since you havn't been around much. I wish you could have come here so we could have been more support.
I had my galbladder out in 2000, so I wasn't sick with anything else at the time. I was different than Lynnwood though I had to stay in the hospital over night.
The only thing I can tell ya that might help is that they put 4 little holes in me one on the side and 3 straight down my belly. The sugery was not a problem but what was a problem is that they fill you up with gas to move things around to get to your gallbladder. The gas was painful. The only way to get rid of it is to roll around in bed and walk as much as possible so you can get rid of it. I hope they can get this flare out of the way before the surgery.
keep us informed I'm so sorry you are having such a rough time.

I am so sorry you aren't feeling well! I will be thinking of you. I saw Dr. Albert Thursday... I am just liking her so much! I feel like I can really trust her. She set up an appointment with Dr. Stanley for me, he's a perinatologist. This way I can be established with him when I get pregnant, and it looks like I'll deliver at Mercy.
I hope you feel better very soon. We were lucky up here and didn't lose power, but we had blizzard-like conditions again today! Take care of yourself and I will be thinking of you and praying for your health to improve!
I'm sorry your going through this on top of everything else. I had my gallbladder removed 4 years ago as well. I was put in the hospital the morning before the surgery and given high doses of pred and antibiotics by IV. I was there 2 nights and did well after the surgery. We are all different...
Like Lynnwood said, the faster you get up and move around the better. Also, like Redrose said, you really have to watch what you eat for awhile.
I hope your surgery goes well and you recover quickly. Please take care and keep us updated. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Patty I'm worried about ya! How are you doing? please check in when you can. Or I will be sending you and email.
