So i got some bad news a few days ago. I am probably going to have to have my gall bladder removed sooner than later. I have to call Doctors tomorrow and see how long i may be able to put it off. The reason is i drew my Wyoming moose tag this year and was planning on bowhunting starting the 1st of Sept. and gun hunt from the15th til i get it. I also drew a good bull elk tag this year also. Just my luck, finally 2 good tags and have to have surgery. Never had surgery in my life and i will be 40 in Oct. Here is my question. I'm sure some of you have had this surgery. How long were you out for and when were you able to pick up and haul any substantial weight? Like a moose quarter? I dont mind if i miss bow season, but i don't want to miss rifle season for moose and waste my probably once in a lifetime tag! I might be able to get doctors note and call G&F and see if i could give my tag back this year and get another for next year, but i don't want to wait any longer and i saved up a ton of vacation for this year just to moose hunt. What would you guys do in my shoes? Or should i find out first what doctor says of how long i can wait to have it removed and time frame for recovery? I definately don't want an emergency hunting, but don't want to waste a moose tag. I think i have to give it back BEFORE any season starts and that is about 10 days away. What's everyones oppinion? Thanks for any replies.
