We have too many stones at our house. We have pea gravel for a garden path at the side of our house. We have gravel for a patio and path in the backyard garden. Plus we have some large stone coming for the main patio this afternoon. I am excited about all of these stones, it means our garden is finally coming together. However, there is one more type of stone that I am not so happy about, gallstones. I have gallstones, can you believe that? First I break my ankle, I am finally getting over that (got the okay from my doctor today in fact), then yesterday I get told that the agonizing pain I have been having since Sunday night is gallstones. Guess what I get to do this afternoon? Go to a surgeon to discuss having my gallbladder taken out. Oh Yay! I talked to my friend who is a nurse yesterday and she said that I am not the typical gallstone patient, however sometimes pregnancy can bring them on. I was shocked when I found out it was something so serious, but most people live with gallstones for a long time without any symptoms. I guess when you have an "attack" is when they start to consider having the gallbladder removed.
I will keep you posted on what the surgeon says. It is an outpatient procedure and you are only away from work for a few days, but we have Cat's birthday coming up and then a camping trip the weekend after. Can this be the last medical issue we deal with for a long time? Please?
UPDATE: No surgery right now. I need to change my diet, keep it to bland and low fat for awhile. Nothing too spicy. Not fun but I would rather have that work then have surgery. Now that I have had one attack my chances of having another are higher, if that happens I will have surgery, but for now I can put it off.
