Gastroenterologist, Surgical 's  Response
thanks for writing in HCM.
The first issue is which problem is causing symptoms? Gallstones or the uterine one. The one which is symptomatic needs to be attended first. Allow a gap of at least 12 weeks for full recovery until you consider the second surgery. Operating both the conditions at an interval of 3-4 days in a patient with medical problems could cause complications. Hence it is wiser to play self and allow the patient to full tolerate each surgery properly.The place where you get operated does not matter. what matters is the qualifications and expertise of the surgeon.
