Gall Bladder Blues Part I

Filed under: parenting — by mommygoingcrazy @ 10:45 am


On Halloween I was trick or treating with the kids and all of a sudden I was really nauseous and in pain.  I thought it was the pizza sitting wrong in my tummy.  I had to cancel the second half a trick or treating because of the pain.  After loosing my dinner, a hot shower and resting a bit I felt better. 

On Thursday it all came back, worse.  Five hours into the pain I gave up and went to the doctor office.  I was pretty pathetic sitting in the waiting room.  I kept on shifting positions, seats, walking, going to the bathroom, anything that would help alleviate the pain.  Nothing worked.  Luckily there was only one other person waiting for part of the time and she read a magazine, never made eye contact.

I have a great doctor.  Before she pokes and prods she always asks a lot of questions.  I suck at answering questions but at least she takes a through history.  So after the question and answer session she started poking and found the part that hurt and poked there a few extra times just to make sure I really hurt.  She says everything points to gall stones but I needed to get a sonogram of my stomach.

The next morning I went for the sonogram and again they found the part that hurt and pushed there a few extra times.  The whole sonogram took an hour! They were mumbling about me being positive with something.  Of course they never talked to me about it.

So, on Tuesday, Nov 7th I voted and that night went back to the doctor.  She was right, it was gall stones.  Not only gall stones but multiple gall stones.  Prognosis: it needs to come out.  One catch, my liver enzymes were high, as in 150 points high.  Now we had to pull me off the Welbutrin and see if that helps my liver, postponing any surgery.

Unfortunately I was stupid, really stupid, and ate pizza again.  A couple of hours later I landed up in the hospital in PAIN.  They gave me a shot of Demerol and the pain went away.  I saw my doctor again and since my blood test at the hospital had my enzymes just a little high she recommenced a surgeon.

Long, Long Time

I can’t remember the last time I posted an entry (don’t mention the fact that I could just look at my last entry, ruins the whole effect) It has been such a long since I have written  that it seemed weird to be writing.  It is like when you tell someone you will call them and a week goes by, you think about calling and make a note to do it but something comes up and next thing you know it it has been a month and you debate whether or not you waited too long to call and then another month goes by, next thing you know a year has gone by and then you know it would be weird to call? Sometimes I still make the call, so today I am starting to write again.  Is this weird for you? 😉  You can look forward to at least one post about my gall bladder removal and getting ready for Christmas but for now here are some pictures from Princess Girl’s third birthday.
