I’ve been told i’ll most likely need open gallbladder removal surgery as my gallbladder was so inflamed, infected and had necrotic areas. I was in hospital for 3 weeks on IV antibiotics. I had a gallbladder drain in for 8 weeks, it’s just been removed. Had anyone had open surgery? I’m really scared. 6 inch scar, lots of pain, six to eight weeks recovery??? I have a spinal condition, paralysis in one leg and use a wheelchair. I think it sounds too much for me but realise now i’ve been having pain and symptoms for about 2 years. Do you think it is worth the risk? Has anyone decided against surgery? From what I read on here most people seem to be as bad after. Not sure it’s worth it. Thanks Claire
