oh well.. I'm not here a few days and then...

Barbara, I'm glad you are back home safe and don't wait that long the next time!!!

LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

When my daughter had hers out at age 18, she had just had a baby and couldn't pick him up for 2 weeks afterwards because she had it done the old way. I don't know why they didn't do hers laparoscopically.

I am just a little sore today. It hurts a little to go from lying to sitting position, and from sitting to standing, but really not bad.

I had mine done a month after giving birth to my first born.

Hi Barb~
I am in bed recovering from gallbladder surgery that I had on February 26th! I am sore and quite bored...so that is how I happened to find this site. It looks like a great place! I hope you a speedy recovery!

Candee, I hope you feel better as quickly as I did. Yours was a day behind mine. Hopefully all went well with your surgery and your recovery is going well. As my doctor said, no crunches for awhile! I'm sure he could tell by looking at me that I haven't done a crunch in a while anyway! If I had, it might have sped this process up even more!

I'm glad you found us, even if it was through having this surgery. This is a great site, with good people. I'm sure you can see that from the responses this thread (and many others).

Yeh, I think we all wait too long for everything. Let's remove the body parts at, say, 4 years old. We can remove the tonsils, adenoids, appendix, and gall bladders, maybe even half a liver, all at once. Then they just won't be there to go bad on us or give us any trouble as we get older.

Maybe we should get a stomach bypass while we're at it, and a heart shunt or two. That way, we avoid the whole overweight thing, and don't have to worry about hardening of the arteries. Now, who'll be the first to sign up their kids? Moohuahahahahaha

(Note, this ridiculous message was placed to demonstrate dark humor only. Please don't take it seriously and start removing body parts from children. And, don't try this at home.)

And Barb; you know we love ya, and am not taking any shots at you with this posting. I just had my funny-bone tickled in a strange way and couldn't resist.
