Just a quick update. After waiting for my op and chasing my consultants secretary and getting no where I contacted Pals last Monday, 23rd of May. On the Thursday 26th of May I received a phone call from the hospital saying that they could do my operation that Saturday 28th of May! Panic stations only left me 36 hours to sort everything out!
Operation went well and I am now at home recuperating, I went down to theatre at 10.30 am and was back on the ward by 2.00pm and discharged at 6.30pm! I won't lie I am still in a lot of pain and discomfort but already feel so much better in myself.
When the Surgeon spoke to me post op he said my Gallbladder was rotten, it was full of sludge as well as stones and had completely stopped functioning, it was no longer producing bile and my ducts were all blocked with stones, he was amazed that I had not been a lot poorlier than I already was. If you have been waiting to long for your surgery please chase it up and push for a date, im really pleased I did, if it had been left much longer im sure I would of ended up as an emergency needing open surgery, as it was luckily it was still manageable by key hole thank god. Take care all xx
