Went to the surgeon

Aug 07, 2008 - 4 comments

I went to the surgeon today and he said that I definately HAD to get my gallbladder out and the sooner the better.  I told him I couldn't do it before Wednesday because I have planned a surprise birthday party for my 11 year old and my oldest daughter is going to see her boyfriend graduate from his marine basic training.  He talked me into having it on Tuesday and if anything happens he is going to have to do it as an emergency.  

The only thing I am dreading is the gas pains after the laproscopic surgery.  They are going to keep me overnight so I really hope they have me on a pain pump.  I know it sounds stupid, but when I have those things, I am able to deal with the pain and it doesn't leave me craving pills.  I just want something to get me through until the gas pains subsides.  I know I am harping on this, but I have had several bad experiences dealing with gas pains and that is something I REALLY never want to deal with again.

Pain was unbearable

Well the pain got the best of me today.  I ended up taking a total of 2 7.5 lortabs.  I had put it off  as long as I could, but finally gave in.  I decided I could handle the guilty feeling better than I could handle the pain.  Called my hubby and told him he had to bring me one and he did.  He said since I had held out so long, he thought he could trust me leaving 1 on the counter in case i need it later.  I made it 7 hours and I had to take the other one.  I will be glad when this thing comes out.

Nerve Study

Aug 03, 2008 - 0 comments

Well I went for the nerve study this morning, and the tech said there was nothing that showed up as needing surgery.  Thank God.  I am really scared of surgery and being put to sleep.  But the problem with my shoulder is still there.  I wake up in the night crying in pain and don't know what to do.  All the x-rays were clear,but as my husband says, something aint right.  

Mother in law hell

Well all is good, I didn't injury anyone tonight.  My hubby was gone tonight so I wasn't able to talk to him about my feelings, but I did however write him a 4 page letter detailing the way his mother is driving me crazy.  I don't know how he is going to react about it, but we are going to just have to wait and see.  As for the pill issue.  Didn't go as far as using anything so it is all still good.

I will be back tomorrow.
