+1

My surgeon tried to do mine laparascopically, but there was too much scar tissue from previous abdominal surgeries (four). So he did it the regular way. The incision was only about three inches long! My mom had gallbladder surgery in the '90s and her incision was about eight inches long.

I was set for several days in the hospital, but they sent me home the next day because I was in the hospital bed surrounded by my laptop, cell phone, several magazines, and a dozen jazz CDs I was ripping to the laptop. The resident said it didn't look like I needed to be there

Surgery has come a long way, baby. You'll be home before you know it.

When Steve has his gall bladder out, it is just day surgery

That's how it's supposed to be. With me, though, because of the scar tissue, they were expecting a difficult surgery and possibly complications. I had an excellent surgeon, though.

Fluffy Angel,
I'm not a nurse but I'm the worlds worst at fearing the worst. I've had 4 at the least bad outcomes from being put to sleep so no matter what I refuse it and then for weeks before my dh shows up at the coffee shop, work, dialysis with me with bite marks all over. I snarl and snap at everyone refuse to eat,and snip at anyone who comes near me, I get so angry people look at me as if I'm a nasty old lady. And you know what I am. The poor nurses who have to Get me hooked to an IV, and especially the ones who ask me questions that I've already answered 4-5 times already take a step back when I say what again? So keep cooking and baking and let your family say thanks. But warn them to back off if they even look as if they might tell you it will be ok, you'll be fine, we love you. Any of that stuff sends me right over the edge.OH yes, You will be just fine!!!

Yep, it is easy peasy now, they just yank everything out through the belly button! Even my upcoming (hopefully soon) hysterectomy is supposed to be done that way.

Surgery, of course, went well if I haven't posted anything since. Thank you all for the uplifting & encouraging words of wisdom. I read this just before I was called back for my surgery & didn't have a chance to respond right away. Feeling much better now.
