>>>> ???? <<<<<<

I went to the doctor this morning and all my tests are negative, my vitals are good, all my blood work was normal. ("whew!") The doctor said that the pain could have been caused by a gall stone, or maybe a soft stone that passed. He said these things can happen even after a gall bladder is removed (great). Anyway, I am not in pain anymore, and after a flu shot and a pneumonia shot - I "skipped" out of the doctors office feeling like a person with a death sentence reprieve. I have vowed to lose some weight and keep my blood sugar under control. I would rather take a "poke in the eye with a sharp stick" than go to the doctor. I don't know why I am like that. My mother loves to go to the doctor, even though she can't hear a word he says! Maybe I should go more often, and not just when I think I am deathly ill! Perhaps I should go just for a check-up once in a while! Well, no, I probably won't do that. Anyway, thanks to all of you for your concern.

Of course you should go for regular check-ups, you goose! Geez! Prevention is the best medicine.

I am very glad that all your tests came back normal. I have found after having my gallbladder removed several years ago that I have occasional tenderness under the right ribs and other symptoms that you wouldn't think you would have after it was removed. But, I do have these occasional "phantom" pains and other symptoms. They eventually go away so I don't worry about them too much.

I am always chiding my sister, mrsgreenthumb, to go for regular check-ups but she too hates to go to the doctor. She would rather look stuff up on the internet than see a physician when she's sick. Me, I go regularly because it eases my mind to know that I am normal.

Anyway, glad you are back.

I'm glad that all your tests came back normal...that's great news.

I keep postponing my doctor appointments because I'm not sick...they just want to see you every 3 to 6 months, whether you feel okay or not. I'll go when I'm sick.

Sorry to hear about your pain Tuff. So glad though that it's gone and the tests show all is well. I can imagine the relief you felt :)
I've heard so often of people having pain after their gall bladder has been removed....and just how painful it is! Sp glad you're better now.
Do as Jelly tell you!!
