Two months before my surgery I ended up with gallstones causing pancreatitis. I was in the hospital for two days. After my surgery in August my surgeon put me on Ursodiol 3x per day. He’s talking about gallbladder surgery 6-9 months after I had my sleeve done. The surgery date depends on how much weight I lose.

I had gallbladder issues 8 month out, had it removed at 11 months out. Gallbladder issues are no joke, mine was shooting small stones into my liver, they hospitalized me when I went jaundice.

Having gone through what I did and feeling so much better after gallbladder removal, I would say the sooner the better. My liver enzymes were always a little high, I thought that was my normal. It turns out I probably had “mild” gallbladder issues for years, but all is normal now.

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
