I saw a consultant way back in August about ripping out my gallbladder, as it was finally caught in the act of being inflamed. Not hearing anything for a while after I phoned his secretary. As an aside she asked if I would accept a cancellation, which I was. One came up last week so I grabbed it, metaphorically, with both hands! A week on and most of the pain has gone and just left with a little 'upper right' ache, and a few small incision scars. The worst bit, other than immediate post-op, has been the glue they used to cover or stick the last bit of the cuts. It pulled and irritated my skin a bit. So it's been picked off! Something quite therapeutic in picking scabs and the like.
