Scared to Death!

I have been having a dull and burning pain right under my right rib cage for the past year. I finally went to a doctor who sent me for a ultrasound. The ultrasound revealed I was "extremely tender" in this area, a inflammed gallbladder, but with no gallstones. My doctor has set-up an appointment with a surgeon for this coming Tuesday (April 19th). I do not know what to expect!

I have had previous surgeries (hysterectomy, apendix taken out) but this really scares me for some reason. I do not know if I will be able to have this done lap or if they will want to do an open procedure (this really scares me)! I am overweight by 86 lbs (I am only 5'4"). Also, I was recently diagnosed with "hypertension" and placed on "blood pressure medication." I am 45 years of age!

If anyone has any advise or help I would really appreciate a kind ear! Thank you!
