I had mine out in Oct of 1998. Put it off for several years and like you say, lost the battle. It was not bad and I made it fine except I tried to go back to work way too soon. So you better take plenty of time to recover.
Please keep us informed.

Surgery was Monday. Gallbladder out and I'm home recovering. Except for being sore I'm doing great. Everyone around me said they can't even tell I had surgery. I'm resting alot and not pushing my luck. I see the surgeon next Monday for a F/U appt but so far Im doing great. I feel soooooooo much better.
He said if I would have had another attack, it would have probably ruptured. I had one stone ( among many) the size of a walnut!!!!
Thanks for all the support and encourgament. I had the best Nurses, Medics and Surgeon!!! They erased all my fears!
I consider myself so fortunate. Surgery was at 1030 am but I went 1/2 hour early and I was discharged from the hospital by 1430 in the afternoon!!!! EXCELLENT. I slept the first day/night away. Doing better today, still sore but taking it slow.
