Surgery in the near future. Worn out

I’m feeling discouraged. I had to call an ambulance last night and the night before. Incredible nausea and vomiting. Oh, and abdominal pain. Now they think I have an infected gallbladder. That means surgery in the very near future. I just had surgery last week. I had a lipoma removed from my left hip area. I’m having flashbacks from childhood related to this. Hate flashbacks! Related to the trauma of the ambulance ride to ER and how I was treated in ER and the procedures in ER. Needs lots of prayers. :pray:


I’m so sorry that you’re in such a rough stretch. Are you getting any relief at least from the gi distress? I know that right now isn’t the moment, as you clearly have more pressing concerns. But at some point in the future, you may want to work with a therapist on the trauma. It will likely be well worth the time and energy.

I do see a trauma therapist which has been such a blessing. I had a surgical consultation yesterday. It was bizarre. I told him about all my symptoms and that for 1 1/2 years, I’ve felt feverish. At times running a low grade fever. He said that having a low grade fever is not likely connected to my gallbladder. He said he was going on vacation for 2 weeks and that he didn’t see the need to remove me gallbladder. Today, I went online to view my chart to see what he wrote. He documented that he listened to my heart and lungs. He documented that he didn’t feel any enlargement of my liver or spleen. He documented that he could hear bowel sounds and that I wasn’t experiencing any abdominal pain. When I saw him yesterday HE DID’NT EVEN TOUCH ME! He didn’t even shake my hand. He blatantly documented false information. AGAIN, I feel dismissed and unheard.
