Gall Bladder

Sometimes it happens without warning, one feels pain and then has to see a doctor. In this case, it was gall stones. The gall bladder had to be removed. The people at the hospital were friendly and provided excellent treatment. The operation was done with minimal incision and was painless. Soon the person is back in daily life again, after a couple nights in the hospital.

It started as a pain in the stomach a few months ago, a cramping sensation. A few weeks ago, it hurt enough to make it difficult to eat. Then the pain seemed to ease off, only to come back a week later, with a vengeance. First they put a thing down the throat to remove the stones. Then the doctors make four small incisions in the belly to remove the gall bladder.
