Most of my friends know that I've been struggling with gut pain for a number of years. I've been around and around with Doctors several times, and finally was referred to a Surgeon, who has agreed to perform a Laparoscopy Exploratory on me. Most of the Docs I've seen tell me that my outward symptoms indicate a gall bladder problem..... but all of the gall bladder tests come back "normal". I'm scheduled for surgery on 20 Dec @ 8am. Please pray that this will find/fix whatever my issue(s) might be, and I can get back to "the old me", and not have to rely on pain meds to make it through the day. The Doc says unless there are complications, I should be back home that afternoon. I'll update everyone once the surgery is over, and hoping/praying that my issue(s) are resolved.
