gall bladder surgery with a fib

I am an 81 year old female in relatively good health but am on  eliqis for atrial fibulation, and diabetes.
I ha a gall bladder attack 35 years ago and a second attack 4 years ago, last friday night l had a very painful attack that lasted a number of hours. I am have been careful not to get dehydrated but I am very weak and nauseated.hopefully I will not have another attack.  My question is ...would it even be safe for me to have surgery...?

I'm sorry to hear about your gallbladder attacks.  They can be very painful, as you know.  While I cannot comment on your specific situation, neither age, nor diabetes, nor atrial fibrillation are absolute contraindications to surgery.  You should be seen and evaluated by a cardiologist who can comment on your specific situation and make recommendations regarding your anti-coagulation medicine before any potential operation.
