Last Saturday I went to the company party and had a great time. That evening we had dinner with some friends, and I began having sharp pain in my chest and gut area. I was afraid I was having a heart attack, so my wife hustled me to the ER. It turns out they needed to do emergency surgery to remove my gall bladder. All went well, and I returned home yesterday. I am a little sore and a bit weak but have had no problems. I was truly relieved that it was not heart related and feel that I have been truly blessed.

Welcome home... buddy's wife had that, when they opened her gall bladder it looked like a pomegranate, so full of those li'l black "seeds".

They said when ONE of those blocks a bile duct, it's super painful... so I cannot imagine what you must have gone thru! [Eek!]

I'd too say you were blessed it was something relatively simple!

Thank you, Lord!

Glad you're well. Gall bladder attacks hurt!

Went through that myself a year and a half ago.
Once that gall bladder is done, it's done. I had pizza with the kids and about 30 mins later felt like I was dying.

Turns out the Gall Bladder is one of our 'you can afford to lose it' organs. Amazing design, this human body. Almost as if it were designed....intelligently. ;-)

Glad you're better. You wont' miss it!

God Bless,

Jack

Glad you are better Sam. Happy for you that it wasn't your heart.
