Gallbladder

April 2, 2009 at 9:58 am 1 comment

I found out yesterday that I have to have my gallbladder removed. Tuesday night (well, actually very early Wednesday morning) I went to the ER in extreme pain in my chest and back and I was really nauseated. They gave me some Zofran and Dilaudid, then did blood work and a CT scan. The CT isn’t usually good for diagnosing gallbladder problems, but it picked up some kind of “matter” in there. I called Dr. M’s office and they sent me right over for an ultrasound yesterday. When I went by the office to get the order, I talked to Dr. M for a few minutes. He said it definitely needs to come out. He wanted to get me in TODAY! I was like, um yeah, how about next week? LOL So I go in sometime next Thursday, April 9th, for the surgery. He didn’t seem too surprised at all that this is happening. I guess I’m in a high risk category, times two, with fast weight loss and just having a baby.

I’m done asking, what’s next. I’m now just anticipating the next crappy thing that could happen. I am scared to death to have surgery and completely freaked out. I’m also still having some pain, though not nearly as bad because I’m eating very low fat, bland foods. I guess the bright side of this is that it will help me get back on track food wise. LOL
