i really wanted mine removed based on loose research that i had done. ultimately, my surgeon recommended keeping it in, as it would involve 2 more puncture sites and would prolong my DS surgery by at least 45 minutes.
I was in so much pain upon 'waking' from my DS, that one of the first thoughts that came into my head was, "thank God I didn't have my gallbladder out, too."
I am glad that my surgeon chose to wait. I really don't think that would have been good for me to have that extra, unnecessary trauma when recovery was already so awful.
