And to think I actually thought there was a chance "they" might remove it today . . .

Another scan tomorrow. Then a consultation with a surgeon on Friday.

To make a long, boring story merely short and boring: I won't be posting anymore about the Great Gall Bladder Fiasco of 2006 unless something truly interesting happens.

Take heart that the process is moving about 100,000 times faster than it would up here in Canada. An operation like that MIGHT happen after being on a waiting list for 6-10 months. Of course, it would technically be "Free"...

I'm no medical expert but it sounds to me like something they could use laproscopy for. They'd make a very small inscision, slip the laproscopic tube in, slurp out the gall bladder sludge, and you're outta there. I'd suggest asking about the procedure first. Laproscopy is MUCH less invasive than the traditional scalpel.

It is lacroscopic. More of a repair job than major surgery. I should have mentioned that!

You mean you're not starting up another blog, www.mactonniesgallbladder.blogspot.com ? [G]

Seriously, I know you are anxious to get the problem resolved, but another scan and consultation is better than just yanking it out. Good luck.

Best,

Ray

Thanks. I've been hurting. I can't wait to get this damned thing out (or deflated, or whatever they decide to do to it).
