Have you had a stone? I am not talking Coldstone here...but I wish I were (love Peanut Butter Cup Perfection...PERFECT!).
I am talking about a gallstone. Just found out yesterday that I had 5 of them. Cute little critters! Two aren't so little though...take after their strong father.
I am thrilled about two things:
1. A reason I was in severe pain for 6 days.
2. A better reason/excuse why I couldn't get my body to feel better during the Boston Marathon.
I guess you can't "pass" a gallstone or blast it with sonic waves. The only way to get the problem solved is to remove the gall bladder.
This means I am getting old...here goes organ number two (tonsils removed at age 6). I guess the appendix will be my next "non-essential" organ up for grabs.
I am starting a gallbladder loss support group this summer. We will meet at the greasiest of greasy resturants. Together we will eat and await any abdominal discomfort that might insue during our discussions.
If no pain surfaces, we will continue our meeting at Coldstone....
