Oh man, I'm so sorry to hear this! You're going to feel better once it's all over, but that sure is a bummer. Do you know when you're going to have it done? How did your boss take the news? Keep us posted on how you're doing.
My daughter had to have an open gall bladder operation for the same reasons..she is only 11 but she said that was the easiest operation that she has had. her incision was only about 4 inches,and she was up and walking etc the next day. Compared to everything you all have gone through,this seemed to be the easiest. It does suck though and I'm sorry to hear about it...You will be in my prayers!!But w/ daughter she did feel alot better after and it seemed to be her quickest recovery....Keep us posted!!

I'm sorry to hear you have to go through this stuff (and I mean the other word) again. I did have my gallbladder removed but it was part of my first "mega" surgery, so I can't relate even to the open surgery since they did so many other things at that time. What I do know is that I have returned to a normal diet and I have had seemingly no ill effects from having the gall-bladder out.
I hope they can do it laproscopically but if not I hope it goes smoothly with the open. Either way I'm sure you'll be ready for spring training
