It’s been a year now of living life with no gallbladder.
Right after the Lap Chole (Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy) operation, I thought I would become a vegetarian. But the hospital served chicken – on a low fat diet. So, meat was still part of my diet. Then, we bought a microwave oven for cooking my food. And even thought of buying a steam cooker.
Yet, after doing some tests on eating the foods to be avoided, I managed to eat some fatty foods. And even end up eating the foods that I regularly eat.
This is my journey of living a life with no gallbladder. My gallbladder was removed around 10 am on October 1, 2009 through Lap Chole (Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy) procedure – a 3-spot incision at the Cebu Doctors University Hospital. The operation was performed by Dr. Don Edward Rosello with Dr. Stephen Aldrich Alsay, the anesthesiologist who put me to sleep.
My life is not the same after the operation, it is the start of a new day, new perspective.
