Artic, when you say you feel a lot better how did it make you feel ill?
I used to get bloated,doubled up with pain in my sides and i mean both sides i know it does not make sense but its called defered pain, used get pain in my pancres, inflamed liver it was while i was seeing a gastro specialist when i mentioned all the pain and twice i was rushed into hospital because i could not breath properly thought i was having an heart attack he said Ho that will be from your gall stones
i said i never knew i had gall stones yes he replied it as showed up on the scan last year i had took, this is after he also had done a liver biopsy which he found out i have cirrhosis of the liver from the good old days of drinking
Then i first had a angiagram main vain in your leg cut open and a camera put in which leads to your heart to see if that was ok and not furred up etc, if it's not you have a stench put in but that came back ok, then six months later i was booked in to have gall bladder removed he said faily easy key hole surgery but sometime we have to open the person up because of complications this was in April 2009 my bladder was that infected and stretched that much they could not do key hole so i was opened up, the consultant told my wife i was lucky as if i had left it much longer it would have burst and then i would have been in a right state.
Still feels numb now after two years as the stomach muscles had to be cut and the nerve endings, of cause now i have no bladder and the same ammount bile to digest the food as before so have to watch the fatty foods bacon lamb fat on the beef etc still eat it but not as often as i did, well you know i occasionaly have a drink
or two but no pain and go to the toilet better too, my op went septic though so had to have it dressed for about a month, if you are given the chance to have the op take it before it gets to bad,and while the stones are small and maybe not to many the longer you leave it the worse they will become as they pile on top of each other. I did have pics of the scar from just after the op untill it healed but i just can not find them mind i would not want to scare you,
may have already
no really get it done you will not look back Arctic
