Daniel has multiple ulcers in his stomach. The doctors did another test before the surgery that showed ulcers and bleeding. The surgeon came in and said that he thought the ulcers were the cause of his pain and that even though his gall bladder is not working, it's most likely not the source of the constant pain. So, for right now he's on some meds that will allow his stomach to heal. Lord willing, that will take away all the pain and his lazy gall bladder wont need to be taken out.
Praise God that there was an easier solution than surgery and that we were finally able to find out what was wrong with Daniel.
