Update- I am home. I am also on hella opiates. I did not have gall stones, but my gallbladder looked “sludgy”. So I have gall sludge. Which I didn’t know was a thing. Got to schedule a follow up with a surgeon about the sludge. I’m eating a snack because I’m famished then going back to bed. It’s not a tumah. (did I mention drugs?) I got to think of some good unmitigated gall (sludge) jokes.
Woke up at 1:30 am with horrible pain in my side. I thought it was a stitch in my side or just back pain. But it never went away and didn’t change when I moved. Then I got up and started to feel faint. I’m in the ER now, waiting on ultrasound results to see if it’s gall bladder or maybe kidney stones. Blah, I mean, I didn’t want to work today, but this is a painful and expensive way to get out of it. Pro tip: morphine and heated blankets are two tastes that taste great together.
