I am having my op on the 25th so  7 days to go and counting smile This friday I have to go on for bloods  which they did already but they mentioned something about saving this one??? Anyone else had this.? Also are they looking to see if it is inflamed  so then they can decided wether to operate or not ? It has been mentioned to me if its inflamed they wont operate for 6 weeks at least! I cant wait any longer. This has been going on for 6 months now.

I am really struggling with discomfort now. I cant lean up against anything with out it triggering the discomfort.I cant travel in the car it is just too uncomfortable and lieing in bed is so difficult and takes me an age to get comfortable. I cant move my right arm out far as it will also trigger the pain .Then i wake up in the morning feeling relly sick and sore and it takes all morning to ease off. If  I get hungry that makes the sickness  and discomfort worse. I take sickness tabs dr gave me but they knock me out. I am only eating plain veg and porridge.  I have one large stone in the GB. I have the odd stabbing pain but have never had severe pain just nagging pain most of the time in the right side and round the back.

I cant wait for next week!

      I wish you well with your operation. I had 1 large stone too as did my cousin. Watch the fatty foods for a while after the operation and get plenty of rest. Wishing you a successful outcome. All the best and keep us posted. X

      Thanks Ace. Yes I will defintely be steering clear of the high  fat as the weight loss  ( 2 stone at moment! ) has been an added bonus smile

    Not sure about bloods. I only had to go and give blood once before my operation.

    I had gallbladder removed at end of April.

    Still having to be careful what I eat but I am a lot better than I was before.

    Good luck hope they are able to operate sooner rather than later.

    Take care and keep in touch

    Praying for you.

    Love Sarah xxx

    Hello Jane, I believe the reason they want recent blood is to Do a group and save of your blood type in case you need a blood transfusion not everywhere does this but some hospitals do, it could be that you have a less common blood type.

    Best of luck for next week, mine is next month. please come on and let us know how it all goes.

And also as my journey progresses.  I have found this forum to be such a  brillant help  so I want to do my bit to  share and hopefully put others minds at rest  smile All the best for yours next month. I look forward to hearing how you get on  smile

    Jane,

    Goodluck on the surgery. Drawing blood work is standard procedure. Just checking to make sure other issues dont occur. Make to tell them if you are taking any meds. Also go ahead and stock up on some soups, bread, crackers, brown/white rice. Rest as much as possible.
