So I had gallbladder surgery yesterday. It was actually pretty neat! I got there around 11 am and they got me prepped for surgery. At noon, I was taken into a big surgery room and laid down and like that I was out like a light! When I came to, I was recovering very nicely in a recovery room. it was pretty surreal to go fade out and then wake up moments later and everything's all done!
Everything's a bit sore. I have several small incisions that are taped up. They did exploratory surgery in my abdomen to see if anything else was wrong and found everything to be ok. They also found a gallstone in my bile duct and got rid of that too.
I'm on Vicodin and it is good stuff! I've never been on a painkiller before but this thing works. Monica, Jeff, Laura and Josh got me some beautiful flowers that are on top of my nightstand so I can peek at them all the time when I wake up or need a pick me up!
All in all, I'm happy to have gone through this and hope to be ouch free soon.
