Hey everybody

I've been having pain in my top part of the stomach and today I just got back from the ER. They did an ultrasound and found out I have gallstones. So in the near future here I'll be having surgery to have my gallbladder removed. Posting here in case I actually die on the operating table. Pretty unlikely but you never know and if that should ever happen you'll know why I'm not posting here anymore.

I too am probably going to have to have surgery in the near future. I will find out over the next couple of weeks!

It is very very rare that people actually die during an operation, but as you know there is always a risk. I talk from personal experience. I had to have an operation when I was in my early twenties [many many moons ago now]. My heart stopped for just over three and a half minutes because I was allergic to two of the components of the anesthetic. Fortunately, the anaesthetist was my Doctor and knew exactly what to do. He gave me an antidote and then an alternative anesthetic so they could finish the operation. They bagged me [among other things] etc for the full three and a half minutes. The two components of the anesthetic that I am allergic to are plastered in big red writing on the front of my notes as well as numerous times inside them.

I have had a couple of operations since then an I have insisted that I talk to the actual anaesthetist in person beforehand.

What I am trying to say is, they are professionals who know exactly what to do if a problem arises, I know, I owe my Doctor my life!

I understand where you are coming from though as human nature always thinks of the worst case scenario!

I had gallstones several years ago. Very painful experience - I couldn't sit still or stand up, let a lone write, until the doctors treated me. The Doctors were going to remove my gallbladder, but I found out from a friend that you can get the gallstones dissolved. So upon hear this, that is what I decided that I was going to do.

The Doctors did not want me to dissolve the stones - they said that the stones will return if I follow that procedure, and there is a risk of the gallstone entering the pancreas, and that could be fatal. I still disagreed with my Doctors, and proceeded self-dissolve the stones, without any medical supervision.

The entire process took several months and I have never had to deal with the pain returning since then. I adjust my diet to include Soya milk, just to be sure.

Out of my own experience, I always recommend dissolving gallstones to people. However, it is probably quicker to do surgery, as the Doctors use Keyhole surgery, which is quite common, and uncomplicated compared to other surgical procedures.

Thanks for that bit of information, Paul. I'm not allergic to anything that I know of. And my parents aren't either and they have both had surgeries. So that's good.

Yeah, I think I'd rather get the thing removed. I read in my paper work after leaving the ER about possible problems with the liver I think it was. Cirrhosis? Don't want that.

Was your urine dark in color? Mine has been and that's not like me. They did blood and urine tests and the urine came back fine.

cholecystitis? or cirrhosis? Cirrhosis is a bit more serious if it is diagnosed. There can be overlapping symptoms that can make it hard to pin-point a single cause, for example did you get yellowy tint to the skin?

Liver stones are similar to gallstones, except liver stones are calcified stones, whereas gallstones are cholesterol stones.

Yes, I had urine tests during my hospital stay! I cannot remember the results. Discolouration can mean dehydration. So be sure to intake plenty of liquid to discount that possibility.

Work with your Doctor to narrow down the diagnosis. I was sure that I was dealing with gallstones, when I made my own decision.

Anyway, I wish you well, and a speedy recovery!

Home now. Never want to go thorough that again. Battle scares are sore, but doing alright. My dark urine was do to stones in the tract. So I had two surgeries; one for the removal of the stones and another to remove the gallbladder altogether. Had to stay an extra day do to the possibility of a pancreatitis.

One thing about anesthesia, you close you eyes, then all of a sudden a couple nurses are waking you up and you just want to sleep at the same time you feel nauseous. But I never through up.
