I just posted this on the UC forum but only got one reply =[ So maybe you can help =]
Has anyone that had their colon removed also had their gallbladder taken out? I had a CCK HIDA scan done Monday and then Tuesday a scope. The CCK test said my gallbladder only worked 9% and the normal is 30% so my doctor is going to talk to my surgeon and see if she wants it removed and if she can do it the same time she takes my colon out. Im a little sad. The scope showed absoulutely no improvement in my colon but the good thing is that it hasnt gotten worse either =)!! Ive tried Remi and Methtrexate and since those havent worked Ive decided to get surgery. I have an appt with my surgeon on Tuesday! Im really excited about
that because Ill find out when I get my two step surgery.
So..has anyone had their gallbladder removed? Doc says it kinda runs hand in hand with IBD which i also have.
Thank you =)
So..i was just reading about getting a catheder when you get the surgery.. OUCH im realllly scared about that. Im not really comfortable with a nurse seeing ME down there =( Maybe im just being a baby about it but how bad does getting one hurt? and how bad does it hurt when they take it out? Ahh im REALLY scared now.
