I posted a few months ago about some problems I was having with my gallbladder and gallstones. I ended up in hospital for a week in December with pancreatitis caused by gallstones. I have been pain-free since December but I still have gallstones in my gallbladder according to a MRI scan I had recently. I am currently waiting for a cholecystectomy. I have the preoperative appointment coming up soon, so the surgery will probably happen a few weeks after that. I am having some doubts about whether I should have the surgery. I have read multiple testimonies online from people who have had their gallbladders removed and are now suffering chronic health problems as a result. I am also worried about the surgery itself. I am balancing those fears against the possibility that the pain from the gallstones will return and I will end up in hospital again. The pain was the worst I have ever experienced. Would you have the surgery in my situation? I am not sure what to do.
