Hi - I'm new to these boards, and I'm basically here because I have to have a surgical consultation on the 16th (which is also my birthday
) which is making really nervous. I have gallstones, but I don't know how big they are yet.
I'm also really concerned about the life style changes I'll have to adopt. If I just have the stones removed, will I still need to change my diet as radically or at all? I know that if I have the whole thing removed I can't really eat fat, which is going to be hard for me since I do a lot of eating on the run. Should I really be this worried or am I just psyching myself out?
Thanks for the help and providing a space for me to rant!
