43. I had mine out a year ago
>Curious as to how serious the operation will be.<

I was amused to hear that Ashcroft would be in the hospital "a couple of days" after his gall bladder removal. I had mine out in December of 2002. I arrived at the hospital at 6:00 AM the morning of my surgery, the laparoscopic surgery was performed at 7 AM, I was out of the operating room an hour and a half later. I was home, in our bed, by 10:30 AM.

I was up and walking around (for short periods,) that afternoon. I stopped taking the pain pills four days later. If surgery can be described as a "piece of cake," this was it.

I realize that Ashcroft has some other health challenges at this point, but a two-day hospitalization for a routine gall bladder removal? It's too bad that the average American doesn't have that luxury.
