Yup, I got gallstones

I went for my abdominal scan this afternoon and yup, I definitely got gallstones and they are big ones. The radiographer said that luckily the gallbladder lining is still nice and thin so the operation should be routine. Apparently if it's thick, it's harder for the surgeons to remove. It should be keyhole surgery and a weeks recovery. So, I'm on the waiting list so I no idea when it will be done or how long I will have to wait for. At least the problem for the bad pain has been idenfied officially now and I can maintain a healthy diet that will lessen the attacks
