It’s been two years now that I’ve been without a gall bladder and I don’t miss it at all. Good riddance to unnecessary internal organs! Especially ones that fill up with hardened stones of cholesterol and try pushing said stones through a duct half their size. The word ‘pain’ doesn’t do the feeling justice.
My nine hour gall bladder attack is now my benchmark for any pain I experience. When I have a headache, muscle pain, or menstrual cramps I just ask myself “Is this worse than my nine hour gall bladder attack?” The answer is always no, so I know I’ll survive, even without the nice narcotics the doctor prescribed me around hour seven. Lohrtab makes you loopy!
Prior to my gall bladder attack, the thought of natural childbirth frightened me, but now I feel like I could birth a 10 pound baby with no problem. It can’t possibly be much worse than passing a huge gall stone.
