ct scan results, blood test results and appointment with general surgeon...whew!!!

Hi Ladies,
I had my ct scan this morning and then went to my appointment with the GS. They didn't see any stones in my gall bladder but it is inlarged. Saw the Gs and he says my gall bladder is very inflamed and infected and it needs to come out asap, so I go in next wednesday and have it removed, he also thinks there may be adhesions in there but won't/can't do adhesion surgery at the same time unless they are blocking his way to the gall bladder, he is concerned that he may not be able to get to my gall bladder thru the scope because of the adhesions that could be in that area from my appendix surgery a few years ago. My liver enzymes were elevated as were my white cells so he is pretty sure of the infection and because of the locality of the pain is certain it is gall bladder related.
So, looks like I will be off to the castle one more time, hopefully this is the last time for me....
thanks to all of you for your support thru this...sending s your way!!!

I'm so sorry you will be having more surgery. I will keep you in my prayers that all goes well! Did the Dr think this is what has been causing your continuing pain? s

Sheri,
He thinks that this is what has been causing my increasing right sided pain over the last few weeks, he said he can't rule out adhesions causing some of the pain also, but we will have to wait and see if I still have pain after the gall bladder is out. He assured me though that I should feel a lot better once we get it out of there since it is so inflamed and infected.
Hopefully this is the major source of the pain and I won't need to worry about adhesions after this.
Keeping my fingers crossed for a easy recovery and no post op problems with this one...
s to you all...
Carmel
