Am back after a long time away-had my endoscopy last week the doctor reported all clear. have lost a stone recently so have found that my reflux has improved.

The only downside has been that the surgeon wants to take my gallbladder out. I not really keen as its not given me any problems at all... personally i just dont see the need.

Matt :-)

Hi Matt,
Glad that your endosopy results were good. I'm assuming that the stone was from your gallbladder?  If so, that's your answer.  One of those suckers could clog up the duct and you'd be in a world of hurt.  I'm sure your doc doesn't want it to have to be an emergency procedure.
Good luck with everything!

Mock Turtle,
After your post I looked at Matt's post again and I think you're right...he lost a stone in weight.  When mentioned in conjunction with the gallbladder, I misunderstood the statement. 
Thanks for clarifying.

you are welcome...but hey im still not sure, but think, (guess) the second interpretation (stone as in weight) is more likely

best wishes

I am glad to hear you are doing well Matt.
 
I did get a chuckle out of the thought of a 14 lb. gallstone :-) yeah Denise, you put a smile on my face.
 
Take care all,
