Gallbladder surgery

Gallbladder surgery
Hello,

I am a 27 year old who recently had a few gallbladder attacks and found out that I have multiple gallbladder stones and a contracted gallbladder via ultrasound. Iwent to see a GI surgeon today. He was referred to me by my CF specialist. I was not very happy with the consultation and the bottom line was that surgeon was not comfortable with operating on me because I had Meconium Ileus when I was born and so 27 years later I have a lot of scar tissue. The surgeon really needed to consult with me CF specialist before we schedule any procedures. I was very frustrated when I left the office because I felt that I really did not get any answers and the surgeon did not know anything about CF.
I thought I would post on this forum and see if anyone has had a similar issue with gallbladder attacks and stones or if anyone else had Meconium Ileus? How are you doing now? Also if anyone knows of a good GI surgeon in NJ, NY or PA that has experience with CF complications that would be very helpful.
