Put off my gallbladder surgery for several weeks and when he removed it today he said he was surprised itnhadnt already burst. He didnt write a prescription for neaseua meds even though he acknowledged that they would be needed. I truly hope he receives the same level of care he gave me if he ever needs surgery because that would be a great punishment.
