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.
