lucky for me the dr was able to remove the gallbladder thru the laproscopy, rather than the open -- and i did have alot of small stones in the gallbladder.-- now i can begin to heal -- once i get rid of this gas! - wow! -- belching up a storm! - and who can tell me how long before i can sleep lying down on my bed again? - thank goodness for lawn chairs that recline! -- thanks!!
