  • Myroctomey, done, going home - .... Snag

    Follks everything was almost prefect before getting into Rpchester Airport to return to Omaha. Everthing execpt for my Gall Blader. After, 11 hours of pain and suffering on plane and UNMC ER Omaha NE. The verdict was a pulip and sludge in Gall bladder. The Truma team, cardio surgen and all 12-13 MDs that were invloved in checking and diagnosis, were very impressed with the qaulity of myectomy and rate of recovery -specially CV surgens.

    In the past 20 years no indication of damaged gall bladder was found in my blood test (including 3 in Mayo in the past 16 months). Details on this was miised later.

    At any rate, I am at home. Being revovery from surgery and dealing with a failing GB (possible surgery within 3 weeeks) I am feeling good, have not had any of the HOCM symptums.

    Sorry to hear about the complications with your gallbladder. If it's not one thing, it's another, isn't it? But it sounds like your myectomy was a complete success, performed by very competent surgeons, and you just have to be happy about that! Hope everything with your gallbladder gets resolved quickly

        Great developments in GB removal allows for same day surgery in most cases - if you flew through your myectomy - this is a cakewalk

          I was not nagging about GB, just reporting my condition and CV surgens opinons here in Omaha that how good the myectomy was done. My only question mark is how it was missed in the lab results. Any complete blood profile could have find it.

          I am feeling good now and going through rib-bones and joints reallignment. No sypmtoms of HOCM, at all.
