Hi. Dr Rick here. I completed an Internal medicine internship in NYC and have two decades of clinical experience. How can I assist you today?

No. I do not believe that your gallbladder problems contributed to, or caused, your previous infections.

Good luck tomorrow on your surgery! Remember, at our age we don't bounce back real fast so even though you feel fine in a day or two, try to take it easy....
