I'm home

So yesterday I had my gallbladder removed. I came home that evening. I'm doing fine. My stomach looks pretty beat up! It also looks huge to me. They use gas to expand the whole abdominal area. Although they say they get most of it back out I still feel huge. It hurts to use my abs to do anything.

The surgeon told Pete that my stones were so big she had to make the incision bigger just to pull them out. Nice. We asked to keep or see the stones but apparently that is against OSHA regulations. She thought there may be paperwork to fill out if we wanted to do it anyway. I said it was not worth it. The surgeon thinks it's silly- the stones do belong to me, so really I should be able to keep them. No big deal. But I do think it would have been interesting.

But I'm home, doing fine and not doing much!
