    Default I'm back from surgery

    Well it was supposed to be a simple Laparoscopic surgery, but he found a lot
    of scar tissue from my last surgery...so instead of cutting he just tried
    Laparoscopic in different areas. Wayne say my stomach look like I was shot
    with a machine gun. He finally got it when he was about three inches from
    the gall bladder. He told me it was the biggest most inflamed gallbladder
    that he has ever removed, and the surgery was pretty tough. He kept me in
    over night so they could give me heprin to tin my blood. I don't know what
    they did to me on the table but I have been so stiff I can barely move,
    Wayne has been a dear helping me up and down from the couch. I am loosening
    up a bit...I can usually get off the couch myself now...still hard work
    though. He also told me I had the beginnings of Cirrhosis of the liver
    caused by obesity and the live may heal itself if I loose more weight.

    Welcome back, Jacquie. Well, at least it's done. Losing weight will also
    help your BP and diabetes. Good luck with that!

    Goodness, its a wonder you weren't permanently suffering severe pain, or
    were you? Good that it's out. Muscles react to tender spots, that should
    clear up soon. Hope you heal quickly.

    Jacquie, gall bladder inflammation and fatty liver are both typical of
    Cushing's or other adrenal disorder. Over the years, you've mentioned
    quite a few things I can't recall now that have made it clear that your
    adrenal surgery did not completely address your disease based upon what
    I know of it.

    I hope you'll recover quickly and smoothly and find a smart
    endocrinologist. Like looking for hen's teeth, but you should be
    evaluated, these are not isolated, unrelated disorders.

    Feel better soon.

    I'm really glad for you that it's over, but sorry that it didn't go as
    smoothly as you had hoped. The main thing is, take it easy and recover fully
    before attempting too many things. Once you're recovered you can continue to
    work on the other things like weight loss etc. Good for Wayne that he's
    being so helpful!

    Thanks everyone for the get well wishes. I am feeling much better today, my
    side still hurts but I can move around a lot better. Still watching my fat
    intake until my liver gets the bile dumping together So far not running
    to the toilet, and no nausea...knock on wood.

    It will probably take 6 to 8 weeks to get back to "sort of normal". Keep
    an eye out for infections too. I've had 2 operations this Spring, and
    the both got infected within a week. Maybe it's just me.
