Gall Bladder Wants Out
I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! How was my weekend you ask?
Well, Friday night I had the worst pain I have ever felt (EVER). My whole chest was on fire and it spread around my chest through to my back. After feeling this way for about three hours I realized that I needed to go to the hospital - I felt like I was having a heart attack. I went to the ER at 11 pm Friday and was released at 6:30 am Saturday morning with the diagnosis of gall stones. I have to have my gall bladder removed, they wanted to do it while I was there, but I just can't do it this week. I know that sounds crazy, but it is true, things are beyond crazy. This is the worst time since all of the royalties are due Friday - there is no way around it. I am the only person who knows how to complete royalties for our licensor. Lame, I know.
Anyway, it got me to thinking that maybe it was good that I waited. I mean this guy is like a trauma doctor - I am not very comfortable with him and his knowledge of the band. I mean he just kept talking to me like a was a normal person - well, the truth is - I'm not. So, I am followed his instructions and made an appointment for Thursday (his only office hours) to schedule the surgery. However, I am also trying to contact Dr. Ren's office, I feel like she should know what's going on...
Has anyone else had their gall bladder removed post-band? Please share - did a general surgeon perform the surgery or did your lap-band doc?
