My name is Ronny and my doctor insisted that I should schedule to have my gallbladder removed because I have been experiencing discomfort in the upper abdominal area for some time now. I have had 2 sonograms done and both scans came out inconclusive of anything wrong I also had a hyida scan with the nuclear injection to track things in my body and nothing wrong could be found, the reason why my doctor suggested having the surgery of a cholecystectomy (removal of the gallbladder) is because my insurance is running out and I would not be covered in the near future and that my body can function with out a gallbladder and such. Well I am having second thought's and have already decided to opt out of the surgery and get more of a understanding of what is wrong with myself and find out all the alternatives rather the do something IMO seems drastic and have surgery based on a factor of not having insurance, I am not in extreme pain and can function for the most part normally , hell I went to work today ( I work in construction) I still do have discomfort and some pain at times and other times I do not at all, it likes comes and goes sparatacally, I know I am up there in age I just turned 50 and Both my parents and my sisters have had this surgery, my brother did not though and we look a lot alike though there is ten years in age between us. I do know that I weigh more now then I ever did in the past @ 210 pounds I am 6'1'', I used to be on average 185 pounds, and I am concerned that it may be my diet and over weightiness contributing to this problem I am experiencing. I like to get peoples opinions on this and what they think. Thank you for reading and leaving a response.
