Gallstones and Gallbladder

I forgot to mention that my doc thinks my gallbladder needs to go.  He saw QUITE a few gallstones so many that he thinks it needs to go.  I told him to just do it at the same time as band, hernia but he said he didn't want to "dirty" the surgery.  I guess gallbladder removal is a dirty surgery.  He asked how bad the pain was and I seriously didn't know I had pain in the upper right of my chest...I will need to start to pay attention.  Because I didn't notice any pain he thinks we may be able to hold off until end of year.  I just hope it doesn't happen mid year when I am in the zone of losing weight because you have to empty the band to do it. <sigh>
It really makes me think I would have never caught the hernia or gallbladder issues had I not started down this path. 
I am really tired today.  No caffeine headaches so that is awesome.  I did have some yummy chicken last night for dinner.  I was really in the mood the chew something last night.(and not my hubbies ear off--ha!)
PS.
I am real nervous that the gallbladder thing is going to start being painful, but I guess there is nothing I can do about it.

Oh geez - when it rains it pours!! I hope you don't have pain from it and I hope it doesn't interfere later on with your green zone. That is not fun!! I am sorry you have to go thru the extra dilemma :(

Oh dear. Well, at least they caught it. Hope they can hold off on it though because it would not be fun to be recovering from one surgery just to go back in for another.

It's better that it's on their radar now. I had some gallbladder issues after losing a good bit of weight and it was pretty painful. If you aren't feeling it, it's a good thing. :)

That news would be concerning...However, your Dr. thinks you can hold off until the end of the year, so hopefully you can if not longer right!! Try to focus on next week one big step at a time...
