This Morning's Ultrasound

I have just arrived home from my ultrasound and it appears that I have Cholelithiasis and Cholecycstitis also known as gall stones and an inflamed gall bladder (clearly from passing a large stone or more on Monday night).

I have an appointment with a General Surgeon next week to review my options.

I can now say with certainty that passing gall stones is something you NEVER want to experience. It's Friday and I'm still sore from it. I am curious to hear from a woman who has given birth and also passed gall stones to find out how they compare (since giving birth is something I have yet to do and likely will not do in this life time). Considering the pain I was in on Monday, it's got to be at least a close second.


  1. My mom has had both and says gall stones are worse. I'm so sorry!

  2. Sorry? Are you kidding??? Now I have bragging rights!!! LOL

    Thanks for letting me know!!!

  3. Hi Bert,
    Got a little caught up on your Blog today. Will be sending love and light your way today from IM.
    At least your gallstone won't wake you up every two hours to nurse!

  4. Always knew you had the stones to fight this.....didn't think about the "stones"......ouch!

    Santa's left something here....please send me your addy, buddy!
