Gone for a few days

Just thought I would let everyone know I will be gone for a few days. I been having some stomach issues and thought I kept get the flu. But, then the issues got closer together and worse. So a trip to the GI doctor some testing, and was determined my gall bladder was bad. So hope fully tomorrow I will wake up with a few incisions and feel better finally. Now there was a plus to all of this those holiday pounds everyone gets, no need to shed them here, sense, haven't really eaten in a month. But, I don't recommend that as a means of weight loss, just eating healthier would be a little easier. Anyway if anyone leaves me a message don't expect to hear something for a few days, or if I do answer may not be very logical. Now if you see me logged in, that is me, killing time sense I have major issues sleeping outside of my bed and anesthesia keeps me up for days. Anyway catch everyone latter have a good rest of the week.

  • feel better soon, looks like your having the MIS for it, i had mine removed with the open surgery, 7 and half inch incision, was not fun

    but with the MIS, its a much easier recovery

    take care

  • Surgery is done, and not really sure what was done, as my niece said two different things. I have made it through the night which was not small feat. So hopefully my cousin is on his wake to pick me up, I have know Idea what is going on here, but I know I need some pain relief, So the pm doctor is on the way home, Not to mention I have stronger meds at home, than what they are giving me. But I think I have found out what is really bad care?

    Tam I'm so sorry you've had such bad care! That really ticks me off!

    I hope when you get home and take your meds you'll get some relief. Take it easy and try to rest.

    Geez..you go for help and pain relief and what do ya get?? Sorry Tam.

  • thinking about you and sorry things went oop'sy for you. we will get chatting soon and have a good catch up, i keep saying this to mitch!!.......someday soon.

    LOVE P

    P.S miss you loads xxx
  • Thanks everyone. I did get home and to my own bed and it is so much better here for me. Apparently the hospital was changing computer systems so my prior meds didn't come through right, so they thought they were giving me to much. But in reality it was lower than my normal doses of meds. Finally a good nurse came on duty and read my bottles and realized the problem. But I still prefer being home. It sure didn't help my fear of hospitals, just made it all worse is all.

    Yes, P we do need to catch up soon, I am holding you to that promise.

    Thanks to all of you whom sent E-cards they did keep me a little entertain and my mind off the pain for a short term, so much appreciated.
  • Glad you're home Tammy!! Were your ears burning at all tonight? We were asking about you in chat, lol. Hope you have a speedy and easy recovery!!
