Like the comment I don’t trust doctors at all and here is why. Unlike the last commenter my gall bladder was not removed until it was extremely painful and when they took it out it was gangrenous and it almost killed me. Doctors have killed 2 of my sisters one by not properly diagnosing lung cancer until it was stage 4 and other by not treating another sister after finding stage 1 lung cancer. I have seen people in my family die and almost die because of incompetence and carelessness. I have seen them giving one drug and then another because the first drug cause another problem and on and on and on. In addition I worked in hospitals for 41 years and saw the good, bad and the ugly and believe me there are plenty of mistakes and not only in surgery.
To stay healthy or to get healthy do your research and don’t be afraid to ask your physician questions; and challenge your physician and always, always before surgery get a second and even third opinion. And if your young considering becoming a physicians because we are in dire need of good ones.
One thought on “Trusting doctors with your gall bladder”
Yes, once you are diagnosed with having a gallstone and is scheduled for gallbladder removal, you should know your doctor. You should check the doctor that will perform the laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
