Thanks to all for the prayers, everything went well, she asked the doctor for the stones (shes always been a little strange), anyway I have a bottle of gallbladder stones, 11 of them, they sound like rocks, no wonder she hurt so bad.  I will keep this short as it does not involve cp, she is spending the night at the hospital, only due to her post surgery pain, it could not be controlled with percocet (pills), so they are giving her morphine thru her IV.  That should do the trick.  Other than that all went very well.
Again, thanks for the prayers, the power of prayer is mighty.
Take care all,

Thanks for the update...hope she will start to feel better soon. I've had many friends who had this surgery...and I had my appendix out with added adhesion removal by scope....and usually you are up and running fine by a week...

The most painful part is the "air" that gets trapped in there that they use...So when it would go up in my shoulders...ouch!...

Hopefully tomorrow she can go home with some Percocets but then only need them for a day or two max for the worst pain...I'll keep the prayers for the recovery.

Again...glad to hear it went well..
Take care..

So glad to read her surgery went off just fine. Man, 11 stones wow, she had to been miserable poor thing. I hate to hear she is having such bad pain but very glad they kept her to get it under control before releasing her. The gas can be a real booger to deal with too. I hope it does not hit her hard but walking is what does the trick, have her walk in the house to help get rid of it.

Sending good vibes her way.......Susie
