Yep, that is what I thought too. We need to support each other regardless of the decision. I think I am still going to do it. I have bad attacks only once in a while because of the stones. I know many many people who have had this surgery and none of them have any complaints at all afterwards. They are happy they did it and feel a million times better. Hopefully it will be the same positive outcome for me too. I don't have email right now but I will keep posting even after my surgery to let people know how it went.
