Well I went in to see my surgain on monday because I have a spot that looked funny to me.Most of my stomich is one big hernia.I wear a compresion garment all the time so it dosn`t look so lop sided.My surgain wants to wait six more months to repair it because my body has gone through so much in the last 9 months.But after I went in he wanted to send me for a MRI. but I had just had one 15 min. before for the infection in my back.He took a look at it and called me today to tell me that he is going to have to repair that spot thursday.The bowel is just under the skin and the skin is getting thiner he says that it will make a hole through the skin and the bowel if we leave it alone(not good).I was thinking that he would just go ahead and fix it all (I also need my gallbladder removed)But he sayed NO.What a let down.So I guess he is just fixing that one place then in six months he will do the rest.So I will post later in the week to tell you how it went. redface redface redface redface redface redface

Yeah keep us updated =) I hope everything goes well for you. When i got my gallbladder test it said it was only working 9% but then when i asked the surgeon if she could just take it out the same time she takes my colon out she said it might just be because of all the medications Im on right now thats making my gallbladder not work properly. So maybe thats why yours is bad? about 8 months ago I had a gallbladder test and it said it was working just fine

Keep us posted =) and good luck

In my case I know that my gallbladder has to come out because it was bad befor all of this started.I dont mind lossing my gallbladder at all. I just wish he could do it all right now.But he dosnt want to so I will wat six months and he will repair the rest of my hernias and take out that to. I also have to go back to the spine DR. now that I am done with the antibiotics for the infection in my spinal disc so that he can take a X-Ray to see if my vertabray have fused if not he will have to do that with surgary.Well thank you for reading my post.I will send a post when I can to tell anyone who wants to know how it turns out tomarow.
