I had no idea there was any problem with my gallbladder, however I'd gotten used to feeling poorly. I was 2 hours away from home when nausea hit, and my wife said I was the sickest person she'd ever seen.

I barely got to my home hospital. I had emergency surgery, and my gallbladder was gangrenous--and close to rupturing. And it was life threatening. Fortunately, they could do the surgery with the laparoscope.

For those just having a regular gallbladder surgery, the worst part about the ordeal is getting the IV inserted--a 5 second procedure.

There's no living with a bad gallbladder. The alternative could be death. In the vast majority of cases, gallbladder surgery is just no big deal.

Hope all went well.

I had mine out almost a year and a half ago. Pain was so bad I went to ER one morning and had it out a few months later. Tried to change eating habits and live with it but eventually it would be back so I just had it out. Good decision!

Had the surgery 4 days ago, still very sore, but glad it's over and done. My main concern was having a stroke during surgery because I am high risk because of Afib. They took good care of me and now I don't have a GOLF BALL SIZE STONE. Thanks for the replies and encouragement, they helped a lot.
