The Day Of Gallstone Operation
The day had come. The day I was operated on in one of the hospitals in the third city, the operation of taking gallstones. I arrived at the hospital during the day. The operation was in the afternoon. Accompanied by parents, younger siblings, uncles, aunts and other relatives, I headed to the operating room. This was the first time I have had an operation, even this was the first time I had to be hospitalized. How did it feel to be operated on? I didn’t know, it didn’t feel at all. Because I was totally sedated.
The operation of taking gallstones started in the afternoon, took about 2 hours. One of my uncles became the family representative as a witness. When the doctor asked my uncle whether or not my gallbladder was taken, my uncle answered no. My uncle didn’t want my organs to decrease. My parents themselves did not dare to see the operation process, maybe they did not have the heart. Who were the parents who have the heart to see their children dissected?
Alhamdulillah, thank God, the operation went smoothly. A few hours after the operation I began to regain consciousness. When I saw the clock, it was almost midnight. I was alone in one of the rooms. Tried to recall what just happened. The last thing I remembered, I was invited to chat by a nurse, then they injected something. After that, I no longer knew what had happened. Apparently, it was an injection to anesthetize me. Sometime later I was invited to chat again by the nurse, questioned by them, maybe to know the level of my awareness. Until finally, I was fully aware, my parents, younger siblings and other family entered my room. Something strange I felt with my nose like something was blocking. It turned out that there was a small hose that was inserted through my nose, I did not know what for when taken by the nurse it turned out that the hose was quite long. I thought the hose was just short, rather surprised me.
Then what about the gallstones? I was shown the gallstones that had been taken, it turns out there were 3 small stones, the size of the diameter was about 1 to 2 cm. The stones were very hard, it was just right to make my stomach hurt. Maybe it’s because they rubbed each other so that it made my stomach sore. I wondered how can there be 3 very small pieces of rock in my gallbladder? Until now I did not know the answer, because the doctor did not know the answer. He said it might occur due to certain cholesterol deposits. While from the laboratory check my cholesterol condition was still normal. The doctor advised me that if I wanted to find out more about the cause of the gallstones, the gallstones were taken to the laboratory for examination. But until now I have not worked on this suggestion, so I did not know the exact cause of gallstones. Or can any of you explain it to me?
