Happy 31st Birthday to me!
But wait, am I happy with my birthday today?
Yes and No.
Yes, because I spent the celebration together with my loved ones. My family, my wife and my son together with my wife’s godchild and my son’s nanny, visited my parents house where we ate lunch. My two sisters and my niece were present and a close friend was also there.
And of course, the main piece of the gathering was the FOOD! Wow! Delicious! My favorites were there but then again the words of my surgeon popped up as warning sign. My surgeon, Dr. Rosello and my internist, Dra. Singidas prohibited told me that I should eat low fat and avoid oily foods.
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.
