I have previously blogged about the upcoming surgery and it was done yesterday.  The experience was all right as surgeries go.  I am sore in particular areas – as to be expected.  Being me, I asked for pictures and the surgeon was nice to provide three.  I have cropped down to the best one and note that this is the gallbladder and the item accented by the tool is the port from the gallbladder to the common bile duct (I believe).  It is a bit smaller than I was imagining.  gallbladderNow I am waiting on pathology to determine what was the actual problem on the inside.
