Hey all, recently I've been feeling kinda crappy, so went to the Dr. I've known I have gallstones for years, but really no problems. She ordered an ultrasound. Results were positive for gallstones, no wall thickening, no bile duct problems, no infection. She still suggests that I get it removed. Problem is, I'm going on a vacation that i've been saving up for, for over 3 years!! Even if they do the surgery next week (which isn't possible, I'm sure), I question whether or not I'd be okay to travel. I'd almost rather risk a gallstone attack while on vacation than be recovering from surgery and having to watch what I eat..... What do you guys think??? I'm only going for 10 days, and it's to my 'home', so if something DID happen, I would be okay with having surgery there too. It would just be cruddy to be spending my vacation in the hospital.... lol Advice?? It seemed to me that my Dr. was pretty quick to say "get it out". ????
