I have been doing very well for a long time controlling flares. Yesterday I had to spend several hours in the beauty shop which I dreaded in the first place. The shampoo bowl was so uncomfortable and I had to have several rinses. My shoulders and neck started hurting while I was there. After leaving I was ok, but when I woke up this morning I was in pain in my neck and entire back. I took Ultram and Tylenol and spent the entire day in bed. This really is the first time I have done this for a year. On Nov 6th I am having my gallbladder removed. I am so afraid how I will be afterwards. I must get it done - I have so many gallstones. If I get this sick from the shampoo bowl, how sick will I be from surgery? Has anyone else had gallbladder surgery here? They will try to to laparscopy surgery, however you have to sign for the larger surgery just in case.
