It's been a long haul getting where I am today, but glad I made my choices to finally getting my Gallbladder removed.
Over the past three years I have endured numerous, painful biliary colic attacks, visits to A&E and deferred three operations, thinking my problem would just disappear. I would be poorly one minute and then feel great the next. "Why do I need the operation?".
I controlled my bouts by omitting foods/drinks that would exacerbate my problem; alas, to no avail. This problem does not go away, it just hangs in there waiting for the next attack. This could happen anytime and anywhere. Once for me 36,000 ft in the air!
It's taken all this time for me realise that by having the operation I would never have to experience biliary colic again. I have needed to be where I am today to appreciate that to live life without pain is precious, as sadly some of us have no option.
I'm now three weeks post op and just been given the green light by my Consultant. I feel fabulous, and touch wood no pain. Off course my incisions are sore and still feel bruised, but feeling so much better.
Its still early days and am taking things easy. I can eat and drink whatever I want and all thanks to my surgeon and God.
So, after all my years of suffering, there's light at the end of the tunnel.......and I don't regret having the operation. Do I wish I had the operation ages ago, No.....because I needed to take this route to appreciate what I now have.
Wishing you all well, and hope your lives are long and healthy
Take care xx
