Sending speedy recovery wishes out your way. And by the way, what is a "hot" gall bladder? Doesn't sound pleasant at all.

a "hot" gall bladder Joyce, is one that is ready to explode, if that happens the surgery is much more invasive with a longer recovery.

Oh my :shock: thank God they got it before it exploded, I'm assuming if that happens then there's the risk of infection as well. He's recovering satisfactorily?

He is, he's at home already and resting up for his attack on PV (and unsuspecting fish) in a few weeks! Sleeping in one's own bed helps the healing process a lot. He's been given strict orders by several to take it easy and stay out of the hospital!

Hope Howard is feeling better soon. Signs of growing old man.... with the weaker sex it's the 'hot flashes', as males we can't be left out, we need something 'hot' too, so just a little snip snip, and you're back to fishing in PV.

As predicted...

It will take more than a pesky gall bladder to keep Howard down for long

Much to the chagrin of the fish... :lol:

He'll be back to sorts in no time I'm sure. Not doing too badly to live that many years on earth and this is your very first surgery procedure. We should all be so lucky.

From the way he was talking, I think it will take a lot more than a gall bladder to stop him from making his 24th annual trip.

Get better soon, amigo. See you for a sunset drink in 23 days.

Thank you all.

All seems to be going well. The entire thing has been no fun. But, I am grateful that it has been resolved as it has. Open Gall Bladder surgery required a week in the Hospital, 3 weeks to a month recovery and the fact that they were able to do a Laproscopic removal got me out in 24 hours and now a week at home getting the drain removed ( Monday) and generally feeling stronger is a walk in the park. And it still gives me 2 weeks to get ready for PV.

Again, thank you all for your kind thoughts. It means a great deal to me.
