Thanks for the words of encouragement. Please post a progress report after your surgery and let me know how it went. I'm still very nervous about it, but I think I should be more nervous about what might happen if I don't get it out. I know many people who have had their gb out and none of them have had any of the complications people speak of on this site. Hopefully ours will have a favourable outcome as well. Good luck with your surgery, I wish you a speedy recovery!
