Am having gall bladder surgery at one this afternoon. After six months of tests, nausea, weight loss and worry, I entered the hospital Sunday, admitted to the cardiac wing with chest pain. After they had done all the testing. I requested that they do an ultrasound of my gall bladder. Sure enough, it was a hot one. This is just one more example of how you h ave to steer your own boat in today's medical waters. The surgeon was amazed that no one had thought to check the gallbladder
Good luck with your surgery. I hope you have a trouble-free operation and now some well-deserved peace of mind.
Medicine is so fragmented today. I had one of my doctors tell me, " You know, too many doctors can kill you." Sounds like that's what went on with your heart valve. Hope you have good results. Phoenix.
Good luck to you mags! Hope the gallbladder removal solves your problems.
thanks! Hope so too. Just met my exceedingly handsome anesthesiologist..we talked about the surgery, dogs, and books....
So you will sleep with him?
why yes, I think I probably will
Rumors say he might be boring, though. I hear that he puts a lot of women to sleep.
Yeah, I've heard that, too. He wouldn't be the first man to do that, though.

six months of tests, nausea, weight loss and worry
And may all of this be be gone for good. (Sounds terrible!)
Hi Izzie! Thanks for the good wishes. R. has been taking good care, and will continue to, I'm sure
it has been the pits. Hope this will resolve it....
Oh I do to!
Sounds like a really rotten 6 months you've just been through.
they're coming to take me away soon......I'm getting a bit nervous. The lady in the next room has stopped sccreaming for the moment. She's been yelling "help," "get me out of here", "Kelly" and "where's my leg" pretty steadily since I got to this room at three yesterday afternoon. My nurse friend calls the behavior "sundowners" for the time of day it occurs among older hospital patients,
thoughts with you guys, mags...
wishing you a swift recovery.
That damn Kelly, always taking legs.
"sundown syndrome" is a common occurrence in medical/psychological situations and seems to be a malady specifically related to evening depression.
Hope you are feeling much better soon Mags.
