THE RESULTS ARE IN

Well, my doctor just called me with the results of my ultrasound that I had done today. I had no idea that my results would be back so soon, but unfortunately they were. I was hoping I wouldn't get this news, but unfortunately he informed me that I have several gallstones. Seeing as though I am a diabetic, have lots of symptoms and have quite a few gallstones he is recommending that I have surgery to have it taken out. UGHH, that is so not something I wanted to hear. I have had 2 surgeries, both female related and I hate the way I feel before and after surgery. My first surgery was for my ectopic pregnancy, where they removed my right tube and I got so freaking sick after that surgery. I was vomiting like a crazy maniac and I was miserable!! I also had a c-section when Cameron was born, but that was actually an a ok surgery because it resulted in me having my little miracle. I am just not looking forward to going under and waking up and dealing with all the side effects. It makes me nervous and to be honest I am down right scared. I realize that everything is in God's hands, but I can still be nervous - right? So, from here I need to contact a surgeon that my family doctor recommended and talk to him about surgery. My biggest issue is that the hospital that I will be having my surgery at is about 30 minutes from my home. I could go to the local hospital which is about 5 minutes from my home, but I don't know of any "good" surgeons locally and this is kinda a small town. I guess it is best to head into the Columbus area and have the surgery there. I will just feel so far away from my hubby and my little Cameron. I don't know what is worse...... the feeling of having the surgery or the feeling of not being close to Shawn and Cameron. I hope God grants me with some peace about this situation because right now I am a nervous wreck!!

Praying for you. I am right there with you. I have had so many gallbladder attacks lately though that I am actually looking forward to getting mine out.There is still talks of maybe while I am pregnant which makes me EXTREMLY nervous. If not then it will be right after I deliver. Hang in there. It is same day surgery so at least you will be in and out. Have you had any actual attacks? If not at least you get it removed before then because they are SO painful.

Oh Lisa, I'm so sorry to hear that you'll have to have surgery. I had gallbladder surgery 4 months after I had my c-section. I was sick sick sick with both of them just as you described. They did my gallbladder surgery laproscopically. It was an outpatient procedure and I was able to go home the same day.


I would definitely go with a doctor that you trust rather than a local hospital. I think that will make all the difference in the world.


Hopefully it won't be as bad as you think!!! *hugs*

Praying for you and for your peace. I just had major surgery 6 weeks ago and it was not fun, but knowing that I am better now makes it a little better. Know that you will be in my thoughts and prayers.
