Déjà vu

I stayed out of the hospital a little over 24 hrs. The pain was bad, but the vomiting made me turn myself back in. Got transferred up the road in the wee hours (first ambulance ride as a patientt), had ERCP this AM to remove the offending stone from my common bile duct (first time I've been intubated and put under general anesthesia). Gonna have the gallbladder out tomorrow, Lord willing and the lipase don't rise. And Dilaudid is my friend. Yes it is. That and Zofran.

you're having the actual gallbladder out? ...Don't you need that? (minimal medical knowledge here)

Anyway *hugs* I hope you feel better very quickly. :/

Also, Merry Christmas! Hope you have a good one, even if you're spending it in hospital.

Thankfully, it's one of those organs you can live without - like your appendix or spleen. Once you've got stones in it that are giving you symptoms, having it out is the only cure. It's a pretty common procedure.

Thanks so much for your well-wishes. Hope y'all had a very Merry Christmas!

I hope you're feeling better soon and on the road to recovery sooner. I hope you'll still have some holiday cheer even if it is just the drugs :)

I hope it's all over now and you're well on your way to an excellent recovery... Don't think about the bill... D xx

Thank you. I'm trying not to think about it. The ambulance ride alone will be over $1,000... Gah!
