Best wishes. Friend had it done about a year and a half ago on Thanksgiving Day. He was up in a day and not much pain. Took a couple months for his gut to settle back into a normal rhythm.

We hope it goes well what ever you do, just if it is surgery remember up and moving works real well.
Good luck

Celt--the stone is 2 centimeters in size

According to Google that 2 centimeters = 0.787401575 inch, I'd rather go for Ultra Sonics, But that's just Me. Good Luck Blurf and Suz.


Actually that is really big for gallstones. There's also 4 others behind it so there's evidence that eliminating these ultrasonically won't stop them from reforming so we have no choice but to remove the gallbladder.

Wow! That's a load, all right. Good Lord willing, there will be no complications, and Suz will be back to nearly normal real soon.

What a mess. The soonest a surgeon will see her just for consult is April 25th. Then surgery may not be until May. The worst thing is unless she has a GB attack she's absolutely fine yet they want to keep her out until the 25th (and beyond).

OMG, That does sound bad to Me, But I'm not a Doctor, Hopefully Suz and You will be alright until Suz is operated on.

Heck it sounds like you live in Alberta; they are famous up here for wait listing people. What S^S said, avoid fatty foods. I don't like to scare you, but perhaps you should read up on some of the things a gall stone can do if it gets jammed in to the tube that goes to the duodenum. Can you lobby some how for faster service? A call to the local news paper to complain about the wait times people have to indure for help some times makes doctors hurry things up. It is an out side chance, but what ever works.
Good luck!

The only way to get faster service is for her to have a full-on GB attack and then we'll go to the ER for emergency surgery. They say she's had it for a year and as long as she watches her diet she "should" be ok.

Blurf..........................

From my entire family to you and Suz go our deepest prayers for the best outcome.

My daughter had this surgery under emergency conditions, miss diagnosis etc. She is fine today and eats most anything in small quantities.

And I seem to remember you kicked somebody's a** from that chair so I know your as tough as they come.

Keep the faith and you will both be ok.

I appreciate all the support as does Suz.

We are keeping this thread open.

She mistakenly drank some Whole Milk earlier so she could react later....we are just in a real holding pattern right now.

Work has cleared the way so whenever whatever happens I can simply leave work during a shift if need be with no writeup.

Hi Blurf, Still sending good thoughts your way. I know what your wife is goiong through. Had my gallbladder taken out in 90. A nice cheesy pepperoni pizza did me in. She will feel so much better after its gone. Hang in there, we are all pulling for the both of you.

Suz is pretty frustrated this morning. She feels like she could go back to work until the surgery or GB attack (whichever occurs first) but she's concerned that if she has another occurance (an occurance is leaving early or calling in sick...she has 3 occurances surrounding this whole incident) at work that she could lose her job.

She is currently written out on disability by her doctor.

She just left to see the original surgeon from the first surgery (she's OB/GYN only & can't perform the GB surgery) who we hope will realize that it was her error in not even considering the potential signs of a Gall Bladder issue and help us get her to a surgeon quicker. Guilt can be a powerful emotion. I told her to play it very subtly and not come out and slam the doctor and put her on the defensive.

Updates later as I get them

The surgeon from the original surgery REFUSED to call the surgeon who will perform the upcoming Gall Bladder surgery---just flat out refused.

Found out that the Chief of Medicine at our major hospital was the guy who bought my father's practice on his retirement. Phone calls are being made. Business is about to pick up.
