Jill, you are strong and a fighter and don't forget we will all be here waiting to hear how it goes - so don't be away to long my love! I really do wish you well, hope it goes smoothly and you are home in a flash. About your BP, they will know it drops, will take extra precautions and keep a beady eye on you so don't worry about that.
Good luck and lots and lots of love Sally xxxxx ((((()))))

Thank you darling, but you are the one that needs the hugs right now (((((())))))! Try not to get too freaked out by it all, they will take everything into account and with a bit of luck they will be able to do keyhole surgery. My aunt had it and she has all kinds of problems with thryoid etc. She did well. I hope the same goes for you.
Will miss you lots - just get well soon.xx

Hey Jill at last !! waving goodbye to the old GB. You are bound to feel a lot better now once the surgery stuff has got better. Glad to hear you got your op sooner. But I still think they delayed it far too much for my liking. Making you go through all that pain and distress. Anyway tc xxx

Hi KJ that the NHS for u, if I hadnt been rushed in last fri, id still be waitng my turn, and I was on the Urgent list, surgeon came to see me and told me he had a cancellation, thats how I got the op!..ive also learnt since being in hosp, that many other patients have it too, and lots of the nurses have had theirs removed, so it is a common occurence....I jus cant beleive how good I feel, apart from being sore etc, still worried about eating 'Normal' foods etc, but im taking things slowly, my fella is cooking me turkey, jacket tatie and veg tonite, so kinda bland still, but that is best for me.....so glad they did keyhole....t5he only Bad thing that has come out5 of this is..... Im NOT going to have my fusion op this coming year(been delayed due to gb).....I cant face having a major spine op, will take me a long time to recover, surgeon told me this, and my last spine op in 2003, took at leasrt 8 months b4 the pain went!! so im seeing sugeon to discuss option in may/june, cantr remember at mo, ask him if i can delay op until after crimbo, the disc has gone above the origional spine op site, so he may sy no, waitied to long already......I have the comfort of knowing this op ive just had, I will be perfect in two weeks, mb less, and can drive, with my spine fusion, i will be debilitated for months and months....cant do it!....How r u sweetie?? xx

Hi KJ, yea hes pampered me lol.... i feel goood, cant beleive how well i feel, shows u how bad that rotten GB was, havnt got great appetite, but did eat turkey and jacket potatoe, without Burping lol, and No pain, thas all ive asked, and im over the moon.....do burp a bit, but not like b4......regards my fusion, when i c the surgeon, if he says that waiting longer will be far worse for me, then i guess I will have to have it.....but since having the GB removed, feel like ive got my life back, that totally debilitated me, and I now have a different out look on the artha tht I have, Im not goona let it beat me,, ive given in, and missed out on far too much with all the Arthritis pain,but now, at mo, anyway, artha is ok, neck hurts, but thingds change daily, dont they,Mb having the GB was a Blessing in disguise, I dont know, all I know is, I feel brill having that out, and I aint goona let Artha beat me again!!(assuming im not in too much pain that is LOLOL) but it has changed me.......for the good...crazy huh? xx

Okay Jill yeah I'm surprised as well how quick they started the pain. I've had my little buggers for about 10 years now. [ OOOOO better not diss 'em they might start fighting back ] ;0)

I keep meaning to ask my GP about the tablets that are supposed to dissolve them. I think it depends on if they are opaque or something like that but I keep forgetting to ask. I'm a right Dumbo!

Oh Booo they are right spoil sports ! Why can't ya keep 'em my Grannie had hers in a jam jar [ mind you that was 50 odd years ago ]. Read some more about the dissolving gall stones and it seems they can only do it with cholestrol type gall stones [ there are different types apparently ] and they can come back once the meds are stopped !! So not much use really are they ??
