So i went to the doctor today and i’ll go ahead and give ya’ll the lede — I have gallstones.
four of them.
i got my little ultrasound this morning and as i was thinking that the jelly wasn’t as cold as everyone says it is while i wiped it off my stomach, the technician was all “the doctor WILL call you monday”
me: wait. how do you know? is something wrong? is something WRONG?!
her: well i’m not supposed to “technically” read the slides, but see your gall bladder here. well, it’s supposed to be all black.
see how it’s not ALL black.
her: ya, there are four gallstones in there. but on the brightside, they seem to line up perfectly.
me: really? that’s the best you’ve got for a “brightside?”
her: well, ya. the doctor will call you monday. i’d stay away from spicy and greasy foods till then.
me: umm. ok. gee. thanks.
me to my mom like five seconds later: holy crap. i KNEW something was ACTUALLY wrong with me. i KNEW it.
oh. frick. something is ACTUALLY wrong with me!! AND i have to wait till MONDAY to find out what happens next.
since then, ive discovered way too much information online about gall stones for own good.
the upside is, i guess they won’t have to stick a camera down my throat and into my stomach.
