The riskiest part of the whole thing is the ride to and from hospital. I had heart surgery and everything went great. Was out of hospital in 3 days. Almost got hit by another driver at intersection when he ran a red light.

All the best.

Possibly if the doc has a cancellation or otherwise available spot to get you to surgery before July 4, he could fit you in. Also be sure to let him know if you become much sicker, ie, you run a high fever, notice you're becoming jaundiced ( yellow), or you have severe unrelenting pain around the middle to the left side of your abdomen, and/or you have severe vomitting and can't keep anything down.

I've also known lots of people (including many family members) who have had gallbladder surgery, and had no problems with it.

Hey thank you for taking your time writing. When I was in hospital on Saturday, they gave me medicine to take at home for when I get an attack. What mostly bugs me a lot is that I have a diskomfort on my right tummy when am sitting. And that I get pain in my tummy cause ALL I eat is little bowls of cereals 2 x a day..... I am so tired and hungry but its like I cannot eat any thing else any more. ((

While no fun, in context, you are extremely lucky to have something so minor and so easily fixed.

No. In my case they knew it was a problem from an MRI a year before. I said leave it alone as it didn't bother me at the time when they asked if I wanted it out.

1 year later it started hurting on the right side of my back after eating spicy food (I thought it was gas ). Another MRI and it was out three hours after walking into hospital.

You'll be fine.

Best,

Dave

I had an ultrasound, a blood test, and some kind of nuclear test that ended up showing bile backing up into the liver. Never had an MRI, but I did have an endoscopy while I was in the hospital, shortly before my surgery.

This was in 1997, so some procedures may have changed. If the ultrasound shows the gallbladder to be full of stones, that might be enough to indicate surgery.
