Home Again, Home Again, Riggity-jig

My gallbladder is out, I'm home, off pain meds and all is well.

Sounds great but the road was rough getting here. Because I have Situs Inversus or more accurately Situs Ambiguous. along with vascular abnormalities, my surgery took longer then normal. Four times longer. The surgery went well, the healing is also going well but the first few days I kept having muscle spasms in my abdomen that left me gasping for breath and well, crying, which really is not like me. I usually can handle pain. Not this time. I was a whiny blubbering baby about the whole thing. But damn, it hurt like hell!

Once one of the doctors figured out I was having muscle spasms and gave me a muscle relaxer the whiny blubbery-ness went away and I went home. Yay!

I also consented to having a liver biopsy done at the same time. I have tumors on my liver two of which have already been determined to be hemangiomas and another was one of those things no one is really sure about, so yeah, good times. I also gave permission so the researchers could look for islets in the liver tissue and all such happiness. I'll let you know what the results are as soon as I find out.

Keep your fingers crossed for tumor - benign, and islets - many.

Good luck to you on both. What an opportunity for the researchers and how generous of you.
