Patty, it's good that others have had this surgery. I've heard that it's pretty simple, and can be done with just a few small holes! Amazing. Yeah, you'll want to at least double your pred after the surgery for a while to make sure you don't flare. But your doctors will tell you exactly how much to take. I think of all the surgery to have, the gallbladder is likely one of the simplest.
I think once it's gone, you will notice a difference in how you feel. If your body is being poisoned it just makes sense that your symptoms will improve when it's gone. Let's hope!!
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
