Doctor Doctor - part 2
Ok so here's the scoop........
Saint Warren came and spent the night here last night so he could get me to a 9:00 a.m. appointment with the surgeon.
Basically by the time I saw the doctor I hadn't eaten since Sunday night. I was weak - to put it mildly. But the pain in my gut from eating was so severe I couldn't force anything down myself.
The Doctor gave me a once over - listened to my tale - and basically told me that everything I was experiencing was part and parcel of having your gallbladder out - well for some people. He told me I have to drink lots and lots..... I HAVE to eat.... he wants me out walking at least once a day..... and he gave me pills to manage the pain in my gut.
I took one pill with my breakfast when I got home and it was like a miracle - the pain in my gut started to dissipate. Warren made me a tortilla wrap sandwich for lunch and it tasted like heaven - especially knowing there wouldn't be the pain.
So I am home. I don't see the surgeon again until the 16th of February. If nothing else this whole experience will teach me patience - hopefully??!!!
