galbladder
« on: February 17, 2009, 08:04:06 AM »
Hello everyone

haven't been here for a looong time. But now I have a question I would like to ask you all: I have stones in my galbladder, and I wonder if that has got anything to do with HIV or with HIV-medication. I have been searching the whole site but I couldn't find anything. Anyone else with similar problems?

Hey Coen,

First, I don't know if you remember me, but it is good to see you!  ;D  Are you still enjoying the cold weather up there in The Netherlands?

Regarding gall stones, I have never heard of them being associated with HIV. I have known a number of people who have had them, but it was usually associated with being middle age or older.

Have they talked about removing your gall bladder?

HUGS,

Mark

Got through the procedure very well, I'm relieved!

Yes, it was a laparoscopic surgery which makes the time to recover shorter. Lucky me! The doctors told me that my liver was bigger than normal, due to many years of medication use. That made it more difficult but they managed to do it with the laparoscopy anyway.

Hey Coen,

I am glad the surgery went well and there were no problems. That is very good news!  ;D

I hear you regarding the enlarged liver. I am beginning to think that also comes with the territory.

Rest well and recover quickly.

HUGS,

Mark

Hey Coen,

Glad the surgery went well.  I had my gallbladder taken out laparoscopically years ago.  It really does make the recovery time very short.  Hope you continue to heal well.
