My doctor's visit

After almost two years of sporadic stomach pains, discomfort, and nausea, I finally decided to see a doctor about it. I explained the symptoms I was having, and he believes that I'm having gall bladder attacks. Tomorrow I will be having another appointment (sonogram/ultrasound) to see if, in fact, I have gall stones. As much as I would like to avoid surgery to remove my gall bladder, I am kinda hoping that the doctor is right. I just want this done and over with; this hasn't been a pleasant experience. So expect and update soon, maybe in the next couple of days. I'll be sure to post about what the doctors find.

**The sonogram went well today, other than the fact that the sonographer was stabbing me in my ribcage for part of it. Of course the sonographer wasn't allowed to tell me anything. Darny! Considering it's Friday, I probably won't even hear from my doctor until Tuesday (maybe later, but hopefully not). I'll let ya know

Mom just told me about your having problems --
I just had a ultrasound myself for possible gall bladder /liver problems. Found a couple of small polyps but probably not a problem . Well hope it goes well for you sweetie- not sure if that means find or not find but hopefully they will make you feel better.

Man, not knowing the reason for feeling bad is the worst! Though I hope you don't have to have surgery, I had my gallbladder out a little more than 4 years ago. Super easy. Good luck, Sexy Tara!

It does run in our family! Your Great Grandmother, Grandmother, and 3 Aunts have all had their gall bladders removed because of problems. Did you find out how soon you might know the ultrasound results?

Love, Mom

Mom, last night when they called to confirm my appointment I asked about that. They told me I would know the results anywhere from 24 to 48 hours after the sono. So, I'll have to wait and see...
