I finally have a date for the removal of my gallbladder. Despite all the pain and problems it has caused me, I can't say the prospect is one I am looking forward to.
I am of course worrying about possible problems as with any surgery there are a few. Even if that is not the case, reading about persistent diarrhoea is not something I really want to have to be dealing with.
On top of that, despite being keyhole, I am not keen on being left with scars.
I am only 29 and this has stopped me from getting on with my life. That being said, having constant diarrhoea will stop me from getting on with my life just the same.
And as for having multiple scars on my body, I don't really want anything else to give my self-esteem any more of a battering.
Maybe I am just being pessimistic, but I am finding it hard to be positive.
This damn problem has made me end up in hospital almost once a month for the past year, being put on a morphine drip, infections, and having to have ERCP ... TWICE!
I simply don't want to be depressed after the surgery, nor do I want one problem to simply be replaced by another set of problems.
Anyhow, I think I have wasted enough of your time (assuming anyone has read this ... :cry: )
