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.
