They recommended two procedures. The first was done yesterday: they put a scope down through me, up into the bile duct, and remove the stone. Today they will take me to the operating room and remove my gallbladder. They said they would normally go in orthoscopically but with my size that might not be available.
Normally I would be fine. I understand how simple and common the procedure is. But after my heart issue, I am scared. Been here five days. If this is done orthoscopically, I should be out Wednesday or Thursday. If this is done the old-fashioned way, I’m looking at another five days here.
