((((((Patty)))))))), I knew you must be feeling very bad since you havn't been around much. I wish you could have come here so we could have been more support.
I had my galbladder out in 2000, so I wasn't sick with anything else at the time. I was different than Lynnwood though I had to stay in the hospital over night.
The only thing I can tell ya that might help is that they put 4 little holes in me one on the side and 3 straight down my belly. The sugery was not a problem but what was a problem is that they fill you up with gas to move things around to get to your gallbladder. The gas was painful. The only way to get rid of it is to roll around in bed and walk as much as possible so you can get rid of it. I hope they can get this flare out of the way before the surgery.
keep us informed I'm so sorry you are having such a rough time.
