I responded to your last post. If you have stones then you need your gb removed. I did not have stones & I still hurt on the left side. I am also a very nervous person & I have a real problem with trusting doc's since my fathers death with liver cancer. I have been to so oooo many doc's. I finally got in to where my dad went & they told him straight up. They was very upset because he was misdiagnosed. They tell me it is despepsia ( heart burn ) & probably caused by nerves & gerd. I thought I never had heart burn with my gerd! It is so strange how some people discribe symptoms & others don't. also no disrespect to anyone, but you can drive yourself nuts looking for answers to your symptoms, we are all so different. I would not hesitate to have gb removed if I had stones.

Hi Crazzy

Good luck for your operation - I have found a link to a site about this operation

http://www.medic8.com/healthguide/articles/lapchole.html

I ma a theatre nurse and this is a very common operation. If you have gallbladder pain then you need this operation, Im sure you will much better after it.

Let us know how you get on and good luck - you will be fine

Take care
Victoria

I'm sorryou are feeling this way. Im sure your husband wants to be there for you and he on't feel you are complaining. Illness can make people feel anxious, depressed and worried. Its normal to wor, especially about an upcoming procedure. Try not to worry about going off to sleep. Anaesthetics are so safe nowadays.
Try not to worry about having cancer - people who feel ill usually have some kind of health anxiety and so often think they have cancer. If you did, they would find it. Im sure you have nothing to worry about. Pain from the gallbladder can be horrible and intense.
If this carries on and you feel your mind is just going ontp overdrive, talk to your doctor about couselling. In the UK, at our hospital where I work, we have health psychologists who deal with this sort of thing.

Take care and keep in touch

crazzy,

I really understand how you feel. I really did not want to have my gallbladder removed either. Mine came out last month. I was so close to cancelling it but I felt that I had no choice but to go through with it.

I think I remember that you said that you have stones and sludge. It has got to come out if that is the case.

Give yourself time to heal after the procedure. Don't rush yourself. Don't push your body. Take time to rest and heal.

Maybe you will one of those people who is up and going within 3-5 days; but if you are not, don't feel bad. Rest and heal. You will feel better over time.

It has been 3 weeks since mine and I do feel better. However I am not back to feeling good or normal. I know that this is because of my fibromyalgia. It is just going to take time.

Take the time you need after the surgery. Don't let anyone rush you or tell you that you are suppose to feel better now and get back to your routine. It will happen. Don't feel bad if it takes longer.

Try to do some positive self-talk instead of telling yoursel that it is cancer. Your brain can either talk yourself into a panic or talk yourself out of panic but YOU control the chatter in your brain. Make it friendly and positive. This is a learned behavior for everyone. So if you are use to thinking the worse, it wiil take time and practice to change that. However it will be worth it. Start making those changes today!! (I need to do the same!!)

God Bless.
