My doctor told me my abdominal pain is from my gallbladder and has ordered a cholycysectomy. I dont know what that is and i am afraid.

Hi i am nurse kamal. One of my jobs as a nurse is to make sure that my clients fully understand their plan of care
"As an advocate, you act on behalf of your patient and secure your patient's healthcare right" (Porter, 2017.). If a patient does not understand why a procedure is being done, the nurse acts as a advocate to educating the patient about the procedure or finding someone with more knowledge about the procedure to educate the patient.
As my clients advocate, i would reach out to the treating doctor and let her know that the client has some questions about her procedure and suggest that the doctor visit and answer the clients questions to make sure that she understands her plan of care before the procedure is performed
Thank you for bringing that to my attention, i will make sure to address the patients questions before the procedure
