    My first thought......OH H*LL NO!!!

    I have had a lap chole, and a lap RNY, let me tell you, both were waaaaaay less painful, and less recovery time than my c-section.
    Of course they were. Your c/s was major ABDOMINAL surgery. The other option here was a vagina.

    Yearly checkups are uncomfortable enough....much less surgery. Very few things should go in there and even fewer out!
    Words of wisdom indeed!

    Ok I am trying to get a visual of this. I am an OB nurse, the vagina ,the cervix, the uterus. There is no opening to the abdomen so just where did they get to the gallbladder from ? there had to be an incision somewhere in there! If someone was in their childbearing years I wouldn't want someone messing with my Uterus!

    You know, diseased gallbladders are just gross. Ain't no way something that yucky is going near my hoohoo.

    Not to mention it has to be dragged through the abdomen to even get to the hoohoo.

    Transgastric appendectomy ????

    Transgastric tubal ligation???? Now THAT would make more sense transvaginally...

    This really doesn't give a description of the 'route' the GB takes on its way out through the hoohoo, but it does describe some fairly impressive complications.

    What a goofy idea...

    It seems we have GI docs with a hankering to be surgeons. They should just switch specialties.
