Anyone had experience with gallbladder surgery?
Well, it looks as though I may have a gallbladder surgery coming up.(yuck!) Seems I have all the symptoms. When I went in almost two years ago for my AVR they did an ultrasound of my liver, and discovered I had gallstones! Well I put it out of my mind of course. I've been getting symptoms on and off, for about a year. It's not getting any better,and this is the only option.
Has anyone here had gallbladder surgery, after AVR? If so what was your experience? Also were you put on an antibiotic, beforehand? What type of tests did they do before the actual surgery? Was it Laprascopic surgery? (hope I'm spelling that right)
Thanks for any info you can give me. It's greatly appreciated!
