My personal rock garden


Pain?

Jeez it felt like I had a spear going straight through me this morning. I swear... I was looking around for my ex.

Actually it's the second time I've had it in a week, and eye wateringly painful as well. A bit like a kick in the nuts only without the nausea and more intense.

If you can imagine that.

So... after enduring the pain for about 5 hours, I decided I should probably go to see the Doctor.

Never and I repeat *never* circle the 'Severe Pain' indicator on the form. I should have circled 'Chest Pain' instead.

Severe pain obviously means let's watch this fucker and see how white he really can turn. Oh yeah... and everyone else gets to go first.

Severe pain must be for queue jumpers.

Thanks you medical shit munchers!

Eventually my lazy arsed Doctor came lumbering down the corridor and ushered me into his room where he apologised rather lamely for what was a mix up.

I shoulda just murdered him there... but he was a necessary evil at that point.

So... inane questions out of the way. I was actually starting to feel better. Why shouldn't I? 2 hours in the waiting room which I have to say I was pleasantly surprised it was so quiet... added to my already experienced 5 hours of pain, meant that whatever was ailing me had finished it's hellish course.

Gall stones.

Gall fucking stones. Unbelievable.

He sent me up to the hospital where they prodded and poked me and gave me some wierd medicine. I refused the blood tests as I always do. Blood tests aside, they were of the considered opinion that it was gall stones.

I'm in the right age group. The pain is in the right place. It came on after eating greasy food.

But!

As I wasn't in pain... they couldn't do anything really.

So I went home.

What a waste of a day! Tomorrow I'm gonna cook myself another breakfast of bacon and eggs and I'm gonna go up there and groan like a fucking freak on their doorstep.

Not that I want them to take my gall bladder out. I just want them to get rid of the stones.

Lazy fuckers. They coulda done it while I was there.

Ha, I wish I would have been there, I would have insisted you got a shot of Demerol just for fun, and after an hour of waiting I crack up. They would have taken you or would have had to take me away to the psych ward. Well, Thank God you are ok, you had me worried, ya wank.

I am not a big fan of doctors. I remember one time I went with my dad, and we were five minutes late. We didn't think it was a big deal since we always had to wait an hour or more past our scheduled time anyway. But the receptionist had apparently eaten a double helping of Bitch Flakes for breakfast, and she started letting other people go in before us. After the second person was seen before us, Dad lit a cigarrette in the waiting room. The receptionsts told him to put it out. he told her he would when she let us see the doctor. she said he had to put it out or leave the building. He walked up to where she sat behind the glass, ground out his cig in the palm of his own hand and said "The only thing I hate worse than whiny anorexic bitches on a power trip is going without my smokes. We will be seen next."

And we were.

Hi saddletramp,

Yep, you can bet your bottom dollar that's what I'll be doing.

Though, I need to get the unltrasound done first so I know how big the suckers are. Natural remedies are my first choice, but I've heard that anything over 2.5cm is best taken out under the knife.

Seeing as I'm so pain intolerant they should all be under .5cm

I think I'd have crapped myself too!

Ohhh, I hear that is quite painful...unfortunately chicken soup isn't going to cure this for you. Don't eat bacon and eggs! Have some camomile tea...that solves all problems.

They can sometimes break up the stones with sound waves. Plus, anymore gallbladder surgery is 4 minor incisions, less than a half inch long, and they can get the thing out, very little recovery time. If you do eat too much greasy food sometimes drinking some apple juice can help. I think it might nutralize something.

And you were wondering why you were feeling bad, guess now you know. Can't blame the kids or the job.

Hope you feel better.

Have tongue, will use it. Repeatedly.
