Jolt – Daily Prompt

My husband isn’t doing as well as he should be doing after a laparoscopic gallbladder removal. He had a lot of scar tissue built up around the gallbladder from it being inflamed. The doctor showed us pictures today, it was pretty awesome to see what the doctor sees. He did go back to work last week, but came home cranky and in a lot of pain. He wasn’t actually cranky towards me, just towards the fact that he could not work.

Our debt is mounting and we will be climbing out of this hole for a while. But that is okay in my book as long as my husband’s health is taken care of first. I can rearrange bills and satisfy some with partial payments as I need to.

My health, on the other hand, has taken a jolt from the stress. I have worried about my husband healing properly and what has been causing him the added pain. Maybe my nerves will settle down now that the surgeon has seen him and explained why he is still having pain.

It seems the scar tissue that was built up was supporting an inflamed gallbladder and now the inflammation is on the surrounding areas, including the liver because the surgeon removed the scar tissue. He went from one angry area to another. At least knowing why the pain hasn’t gone away is helping my nerves.

Maybe I can get my Avon estore to take off so I can supplement our lack of income.

    Oh wow, the vicious gallbladder. I had a gallbladder from ‘hell’ a couple of years ago. Long story short, it took 2 surgeries to get rid of this useless organ as there was so much infection, and I was in and out of the hospital about 5-6 times. A gallbladder attack’s pain is excruciating, and so relieved when they finally removed it. Haven’t had any problems since. I can understand your stress with money issues and illness though, that’s enough to bring on huge anxiety. Stay strong, you are a true warrior. Hugs xo

      I’m so sorry you had to go through so much agony! Thank you for understanding our issues. My husband is doing much better now that the nasty thing is out of him.
