    If you're so inclined, please say a little prayer for the missus as she goes in first thing in the morning to have her gall bladder removed. I'd be mighty obliged to you all if you do. Doc (the real one) says it is a simple laproscopic procedure, but you never know. :confused:
    Thanks,
    Doc

    Best wishes to your wife for a safe surgery and a quick recovery Doc! One of my wife's friends went through that recently and is doing just fine.

    I had the gall bladder surgery done a couple of years ago. The surgery isn't bad. Just tell her not to try to use her stomach muscles for a few weeks. No sit ups. Believe me, I tried to sit up once! I then learned to lay on my side and push myself up with my arms.

    There is no such thing as simple surgery. Anything invasive is fraught with possible danger. My prayers are with her, and to strengthen you. God Bless

    Gall bladder surgery is one f the oldest operations; Samuel Pepys had it done.
    One of my first supervisors had it. He consoled himself with the knowledge that, if he survived the operation, his insurance rating would still be normal.
    Give her all our best wishes.

    Doc,
    Best wishes and prayers. A former girlfriend of mine had the laproscopic gall-bladder surgery while we were dating, three or four small scars, she was up and about in a couple days and back to normal in a couple weeks. Let's just say her pain tolerance wasn't nearly as high as most women I've known, so if she could take it and be better in a couple weeks anyone else would jog home after they wake up.

    Thanks for all of your well wishes and prayers. Mrs. Doc's surgery went fine and she is resting comfortably. Amazingly, she's even cleared to go home later today if she wants to or she can stay the night. I'm staying home with her tomorrow. Would I be a cad if I tried to sneak in some train time while she's napping?

    Doc
