… and all is well!

Mr Esther’s gall bladder surgery went well. I know it’s a relatively common procedure and doesn’t take too long but still, I was worried. That was my soul mate they operated on, everything just HAD to go well and luckily it did. 🙂

Mr Esther has never had any gall bladder complaints before until Wednesday evening when the pain started and soon became intense. Turns out it wasn’t just gall stones that were bothering him, his whole gall bladder was completely infected. The surgeon called me after surgery and told me the gall bladder had been ‘close to death’, it’s good that it’s removed now. They want to keep Mr Esther in the hospital for a few days for observation, give him antibiotics and make sure the infection is gone. Hopefully he can come home again after the weekend. They gave us a little pot of gall stones that came out of him…

… and my goodness, I can’t believe he never had complaints before! He’s still groggy after surgery. We left him an hour and a half ago so that he could sleep a little. Going in to see him again in an hour. Thankfully all is well and all he has to do now is have the patience to recover.

Thank you all for your kind thoughts, support and reassurance!

  4. Good to hear this! I know from myself that going through a medical treatment or surgery, even a minor or routine one, makes me feel odd each time…. And it would be the same with regards to my husband too, so I completely get your feelings and your relief! Best wishes!

  5. So good to hear everything went well. In a sort of perverse way it was a good thing that the pain had become so bad that he went to see the doctor – with that infection it sounds pretty serious. Glad to know that he is well looked-after in hospital.
    And ooh – I envy you for the gall stones! I would’ve liked to have mine, too, but the Irish hospital did not dally with such fripperies. 😩

    • Danke! Mein Schatz ist zwar erschöpft und viel laufen geht noch nicht, aber es geht ihm schon besser. Es wird ihm hoffentlich noch besser gehen wenn er wieder zu Hause sein kann. 😊

  11. PassĂ©e par cette Ă©preuve , je lui apporte tout mon soutien. Ce type de pathologie est bĂ©nigne, si elle est prise Ă  temps. Mais si la personne est ĂągĂ©e ou si la nĂ©crose est importante, les infections peuvent ĂȘtre trĂšs graves. Je suis contente de la rapiditĂ© de cette prise en charge. Il va pouvoir se remettre doucement, avec quelques kilogrammes en moins et des souvenirs: quelle belle collection de cailloux!

    • Thank you, Squirrel! Yes, I too am very happy they were able to act on this quickly. On to full recovery (and a few less kilos – lol)!

      • 🙂 MES grands ADOLESCENTS SONT AVENTURIERS.
        Ma fille a passĂ© 5 jours Ă  Amsterdam, la semaine derniĂšre. Le logement Ă©tait horrible: peinture Ă©caillĂ©e, sanitaires communs…Elle a cassĂ© son tĂ©lĂ©phone portable, Ă  cause d’une chute. Son ordinateur portable a Ă©tĂ© cassĂ©, lors du trajet aller en avion. De plus, lors du retour en bus, elle a Ă©tĂ© contrĂŽlĂ©e par la douane volante. Tout a Ă©tĂ© fouillĂ©. Le chien avait dĂ©tectĂ© de la poudre dans sa valise (sĂ»rement rĂ©cupĂ©rĂ©e sur les vĂȘtements dans l’appartement). J’en suis malade rĂ©trospectivement.
