    Good job. My father-in-law developed sepsis from an infected gallbladder and his life has been a living heck sense then. You are doing the right thing.

    Well, I had surgery and it was a bear. Started as laparoscopic but the Doc quickly discovered that wouldn't work. My gallbladder was 2x the size it should have been, had 100s of popcorn kernel sized stones, and if I had waited any longer the gallbladder would have began dying. The Doc was surprised I was never in pain as it's the worst he'd ever seen.

    Now after a 2 day hospital stay and a 6in incision with quite a few staples, I'm on the mend. But hospital's really need longer beds for people who are tall. Because being 6'4 I was cramped up.

    Wow, sorry to hear about the complications. Rest up!
