Emergency Surgery

I had emergency surgery to take out a gangrene gall bladder. I was told major surgery and I could Have died without surgery. I am now Recovering. I have MS too. Wondering if I could get MS worse because Of this?

Hi Jan,

Almost the same as you; for the last 5 years I wore a convene; which is like a durex with a tube at the end that took the urine away.

It seemed I got a sore on me Willy and obviously with that not being the cleanest of areas ended up in the wait to get into hospital with a gangrene wily and dying.

Obviously he did not want me; but the ICU and the Ambulance staff were brilliant.

I had a strange conversation with the Surgeon afterwards. His precise words were “I suggest you don’t die again as you will probably end up a vegetable. So now I’m a ‘do not resuscitate;’ tell you what; I am not afraid of dying.

You will be great; this happened to me last Christmas; it’s taken 6 months but now I’m Fann-Dabby-Dozzy did not affect my MS.
