The Results Are In

The results of my Ultra Sound are in. The verdict? I have sludge! There is biliary sludge in my gallbladder. Dandy!

So, next Thursday, I go in for a Nuclear Hida Scan. I'm not sure it's as fun as it sounds.

At this point, I'm ready for them to take the damn thing out. I've gotten the hang for the most part of how to control the pain, but sometimes I have done nothing to cause the pain. And then sometimes, I forget all about it and have a grilled cheese for lunch and curse myself 30 minutes later.

My mother is also having more tests done but they are leaning toward issues with her Pancreas.

The doctors are on a short timeline with me. I'm not exactly sure how much longer I have this job, and they need to decide whether they are taking this useless thing out, and if so, how soon.

Meanwhile, a stock tip.....chicken and rice!

I hope they can decide soon - just so you can be more comfortable.

Eww, a nuclear hida scan sounds like they are going to hide nuclear weapons in your gall bladder. Hope it isn't too uncomfortable.

I think I read about a Nuclear Hida Scan in a Tom Clancy novel...something about bung-holes and old school cold war type stuff...ewwwwww.
Take care and come on up. I can make chicken and rice.

Heh, Mo and I who both have no gall bladder often say the same thing... we don't know causes our issues at times. I can eat a piece of toast and be a frickin' wreck.

But... i will say, the issues I have now are nothing compared to what I had when I had that damn 2.5 cm gall stone rattling around in my gall bladder!

Unless they can pump out said sludge, I'd say "Take it out!"
