Oh no!  I’m so sorry about your upcoming surgery!  I hope that the recovery isn’t bad and you will be well in no time.

PS – Why did they have to do the endo biopsy while you are awake?  Geez, that seems like something they should knock you out for and they really were not honest about the pain involved!

thumpurr:  I think you are  focussing on the worst possible outcomes. Most people who have laparoscopic gallbladder surgery do just fine and are so glad they had the procedure done.<br /> Hopefully you will be one of those people.

Do you think you may be over-dramatizing just a bit? I’ve had a few endometrial biopsies in the past and they were moderately uncomfortable, but short-lived and tolerable. I’ve also had my gall bladder removed laparoscopically, and within a few days was back to normal. Approach this with a positive attitude, and you’ll be fine. Not the end of the world, my dear.

I have had gal bladder problems for years, but I’m not so bad that the doctors are willing to take it out yet.  I really wish they would.  I have attacks of pain so bad when it flares up that I’m on my back, on the couch for a day or two until it stops.  I would focus on how much better you will feel once it is done!    Yes, the lack of income isn’t much fun, but the lack of pain will allow you to enjoy your wedding so much more!

I’m nurse. Most people who have their gallbladder removed actually feel better after the surgery since they don’t have all of the pain. You will have to ease back into a normal diet after the surgery. And there may be some things you can’t eat, but you can tolerate food a whole lot better after the surgery than before.

thumpurr:  I also had a endo that went horribly I feel you! I was in so much pain in tears and I have a pretty high pain tolerance level. But I think you will feel a million times better aver your surgury just breath its all for the better.

thumpurr:  Well, if the doctors told you only liquids then you need to only eat liquids. Did they say of you can have thick liquids or just clear liquids? If you can have thick then you can have cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup. That will probably be the most filling thing. Jello is also more filling than just drinking juice.
