One Year Ago
One year ago today. I went in for gallbladder surgery. I had gotten sick on Christmas Eve, with what I thought was indigestion. Oh how my stomach ached. I went to the emergency clinic the day after Christmas, the PA pushed on my abdomen. I almost came off the table, wow she said it's your gallbladder. I was sent home with pain killers and antacids. Two days later the hospital called with instructions telling me they were going to do an ultrasound. I went infor the ultrasound. It showed my gallbladder was full of polyps. It must come out. We meet with the surgeon, scheduled my out patient surgey. I went in for the surgery. Of course my luck was complications, I have to much scar tissue from having an emergency c-section. So the surgeon had to cut my side open. The result was one week in the hospital with a morphine pic. My bestie Julie came to see me everyday and Hubs never left my side. I went home with pain pills and gorgeous staples. The day I was scheduled to have the staples removed, there was a snow storm and my appointment was cancelled. I went back to work before I was released. I was so ready to get life back to normal. It was weeks before I could sleep in the bed. Months before I felt normal oh the heartburn. I feel back to normal now. Once in a while I have a twinge where my scar is. I'm hoping no more surgeries are in my future.
