I visited the surgeon's office yesterday and now have my surgery scheduled. March 11. Three weeks seems like a long time to keep waiting - as it has been about 2 already. But at same time, I had a few things in my schedule to work around: namely my continuance interview for provisional membership in the UMC.
Until that time, I'm really trying to avoid fats and proteins. After much of the reading I have done, these are the foods that will activate my gall bladder the most. So high-fiber and low-fat eating, here I come. It actually is probably exactly what I need to lose some weight and be a bit healthier too, so I'm not complaining.
My surgery will be at 7:30 in the morning - four small incisions - and I should be home that afternoon. It all seems kind of surreal to think about - I haven't had surgery since my tonsilectomy when I was little, and don't really remember much about that. I can't possibly imagine how I will feel, what I'll be able to do, how my body will respond. I guess I'll find out soon!
