Thank you for what you have said. I saw my regular doctor over one week ago and then went for my ultrasound a week ago today. I am sure it is the waiting around that has gotten me so anxious. I was diagnosed with "hypertension" a couple of months ago and up until then I did not take medications for such things. I know I desperately need to lose some weight and get my health back.
I am only 45 years old and feel 60. I have been having stomach and gallbladder problems for quite some time now. I will go to see the surgeon tomorrow to schedule my surgery (hopefully he will get me in right away). My palms get sweaty just typing the word "surgery." I guess if it has to come out... it has to come out. As my husband tells me, "bite the bullet and lets get it done."
