We sent DJ a quick text this morning, only to discover that he's in hospital..... :oo:

Not life threatening, but some pain. Tummy problems. (I hope it was OK to post this DJ. I'll seek forgiveness, not permission, later).

I know all on the board will be hoping DJ has a quick recovery. I've left a phone message, but no answer thus far. I'll keep you all posted (assuming DJ is OK with it all).

It seems the turning Gods have something against Vicmarc owners..... :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

Whats DJ's fav music :D:D - hard rock

Whats DJ's fav Song :D:D - rock around the clock

Yep they just keep coming DJ but i am thinking of you.

Ern not sure if you can turn them but they might make a nice inlay in a lidded box or something.

When i worked in the Abattoirs the stones from cows were worth quite a bit of money - would it be aphrodisiac or something?

Hey DJ,
Hope you recover soon. I had 'em, worse than childbirth they say, but SWMBO won't have it. My doc decided to take out the gall bladder but did it with keyhole surgery, 2 nights in hospital and back at work the next week. No more pain.
You picked a lousy time for it but all us lurkers feel for you.

DJ these blokes are all bastwerds stirring you up giving you Curry, Yoghurt is the answer.

Aunt had 46 of them.

Now there would be a problem does the DR allow them to group together amalgamate and form one solid mass and let them pass naturally gives knew meaning to shyting bricks.

Now something that size would make easy a doz pens ( will it be oil finish or CA) no way would I be putting that pen in my mouth :oo: :no:. Maybe a salt and pepper shaker

Mr Brush
27th Dec 2009, 09:56 AM
I had a mate with the same problem - they used an ultrasonic doodad to break the stones up so that they would pass naturally.

Of course, from that day on he was known far and wide as "pebbledash".....:D

I had my gall bladder removed. It was a relatively minor op and saved all those excruciating pains curled up in bed sweating while clutching a hotwater bottle to my tum and pretending not to sob. I can really recommend it if your doctor suggests it as an option. No problems since I have to say, and not terribly many scars either as they do it as a laparoscopy these days (three incisions, about an inch across. Recovery time depends on your state of health, but I was back in action within three weeks (they say six, but don't believe them).

Gee DJ, just heard.

Know how you feel, I had to have my gall bladder out 6 months ago after passing out on the kitchen floor.

Hope your op goes well and things settle down again for you. Just remember, no heavy lifting for at least 6 weeks after - nothing over 4kgs that is.

For me it was a good way of dieting :U, nor more really rich food or excess food :no:

I was given two months for it to settle down and now the operation is

And I may beat you too Allan :q was told today that they would book me in for 3 weeks time.

But a lot of this also depends on tomorrows ultrasound as one of my blood test has indicated that one of the stones has moved and that if it has as feared, they will have to send me to Box Hill Hospital to remove the stone as it could cause an infection, reason for Box Hill is because they have to go down through my mouth :o which they can't do here at Maroondah.

Well I'm back at Maroondah Hospital after having an ERCP performed on me at Box Hill Hospital, unfortunately they were not able to get at the stone in question but inserted a stent in the bile duct which has made a big difference and I'm no longer jaundiced or in pain.

I guess I find out the rest when the doc does the next lot of rounds.

Don't worry, at the worst that might mean that in case of operation they will not feel comfortable operating laparoscopically (3 small cuts) and prefer the tried and true (one larger cut) which is safer but requires a slightly longer recovery period. Again, best wishes.

They will be doing the operation laparoscopically at a later date to remove the gall bladder, but they can't do it whilst the gall bladder is inflammed. The stay in hospital now is about getting the pain settled but took a bit longer due to the blocked bile duct, hence the trip to BH to get the the stone removed via ERCP (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endoscopic_retrograde_cholangiopancreatography) but they weren't able to get at it so they put a stent in the bile duct to clear the blockage

Well things have changed again :gaah:

I have been discharged and currently sitting at my folks house.

The operation was cancelled, due to some missing reports that didn't accompany my return from Box Hill after the ERCP, the Doc wasn't aware of a couple of things and said that if I was to have the Gall Bladder out tomorrow and that by chance there was still a stone in me, it could be problematic for me. So I have been booked in as an outpatient on Wednesday for an MRCP (http://www.mydr.com.au/tests-investigations/magnetic-resonance-cholangiopancreatography-mrcp) and then we'll progress from there.
