Maybe when my doctor told 17 year old me that high blood pressure was a symptom of my job, he should’ve also mentioned how rich and fatty foods cause gall stones.
Last night I experienced the worst pain of my life and after an hour, and 3 nurofen plus, was taken to emergency, after another hour of pain I finally saw the doctor. He pressed so hard on my gall bladder that I almost spewed. He gave me the option of being admitted to hospital - I may have a slight fear of hospitals…
I came home, took the amazing pain killers he gave me, turned into a fuzzy ball and proceeded to pass out. The GP earlier today described gall stones as what you get when you’re ‘fair, fat and forty’, of which I am fair… Blood test taken and ultrasound booked for Saturday.
The funny thing is I thought weeks before that I might have gall stones. Well the pain wasn’t funny, but maybe I should’ve gone to the doctor earlier…. Lesson learnt.
