Good to hear from you Arlene!
Jen, at least you know that now you are progressing as you should, and that it is going to take a while to be back to "normal". You haven't been well for a long time though I think? I seem to recall a lot of tiredness, colds etc. and no stamping mojo etc. If your gallbladder was that bad, I wonder if once you are recovered, you will actually feel better than normal? Perhaps the gallbladder has been making you sick without you knowing it?
