Quick note to let all of you wonderful people know that I am GOOD!!! The actual surgery only took about 45 minutes and everything went very well. My doctor just happens to be the best at this surgery. I am thankful I was able to get him.
Coming out of anesthesia was the difficult part but I was home an in my own bed by 12:30
Drank gallons of Gator aid and water. There is no pain to speak of. My stomach feel tight and where my gallbladder was it pulls when I stand up straight or turn wrong. So the need for pain meds is a not issue for me. Yeahhh...My stomach looks like they beat me up it is all bruised and the surgery sties are really bruised. Ahhhh no you will not be getting a photo of my tummy. LOL
I won't be running any races soon but I feel so much better knowing this bag of rocks is out of me. I will be getting my stones after pathology. It takes about two weeks. Yes I will be creating with them. If they are strong enough my friend and I will make some cabs from that gimonsterous rock and then run them all through the tumbling machine. I do know they come in an array of colors so it will be exciting to see what color mine are. Geee did you ever know a person so excited to have gallbladder surgery and then more excited to get the stones. Heyyy you all know I am just a wee bit on the touched side. LOL
I am so honored to have friends like all of you. I cherish each and every one of you and all the prayers, healing energy and positive thoughts will come back to you. Thank you from the bottom of my and the top of my heart.
So here are some photos of gallstones.
These amber colors are petty cool
