Still sick

I went to the Dr. today and she confirmed that it is probably my gallbladder and is sending me for a ultrasound tomorrow.  She said that the CAT scan will probably not pick up stones.  The ultrasound will.  If there are stones, I will get surgery.  This is not coming at a good time as I have very little benefit time at work.  Disability does not pay very much either.  So we will be struggling and may have to depend on Travis' paycheck to get by.  Besides, if I apply for any services, they will probably count his check too. 

I have been having some pain and feeling feverish today.  I hope they figure out what is wrong, so I can get to feeling better.  Linda

Gallbladder surgery is nothing like it once was.  Now it is done by laparoscopy and usually does not require an overnight stay in the hospital.  My 2 daughters and I have all had this surgery and were back in our  usual routine in 3 to 4 days.  If your work is not terribly physical, you will probably not be down long. Good luck.

I had my gallbladder removed a few years ago.  It's not that bad.  I was back to work in a week!
