Yes, I'm very thankful for the newer laparoacopic method! Wow, 6 months is a long time.
I don't know about you, but those pain episodes I was having from my gall bladder going bad are the worst I've ever felt in my life. So agonizing it brought me to tears.
One of the stones came out and blocked up my pancreas, and I ended up with pancreatitis. My lipaste was up over 3600, and I guess the pancreas is considered inflamed when it's over 40. It was a pretty crazy week.
