For about 18 months now I have been getting abdominal pains, nausea and dreadful heartburn. I was putting off seeing the doctor as I had convinced myself I had cirhossis or something sinister that would cause a drastic lifestyle change.
Last week I could stand it no longer. The doctor sent me for a Cat Scan which revealed everything disgustingly normal. He then gave me an option of an ultra sound which I took up in order to convince myself that the whole thing was a figment of my imagination.
I had that yesterday and it was the longest half day of my life waiting for the results.
It came back- and no liver damage. What a relief- I will have a beer to celebrate.
The problem is a diseased gall bladder which will have to be removed. The doctor wondered why I was happy when he told me.
