I had mine out at the same time. Can you see if they will do that??

It's probably best to discuss the appropriate strategy with your surgeon. One of my prequisite tests showed that I have a rather large gallstone. I spoke with my surgeon about it and since it is not currently giving me any problems, we're going to wait until 2-3 months after my sleeve to take out my gallbladder. I was worried that I was going to have to my gallbladder out before the sleeve. I asked about having it out during the same surgery as my sleeve, but my surgeon prefers to do them separately.

I recommend you a website: Gallstones where you can find instructions for liver and gallbladder flush and non-operative methods for treating gallstones. Despite the role that the gallbladder plays in bile collecting and thickening, patients can still live a normal life after its resection, with or without any ailments. Does this mean that we do not need this little organ, which quite often reminds us about its existence? Maybe it would be worth considering non-operative methods related with treating gallstones before making the decision to undergo surgical intervention, since results of the latter cannot be reversed?

If you decide to do something like this, do it under a physician's care. I don't want to scare you, but just like your appendix can rupture, your gallbladder can too and that can be dangerous.

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.

      I have two initial consultations coming up. November 30th I am traveling to Richmond Virginia to VCU and on December 2nd I am consulting with a bariatric surgeon in Salem Virginia. 
      Let's hope my insurance is good for this decision. 
      I wanted an extended tummy tuck but I cannot justify the out of pocket expense yet. Pray for me.
