Adhesions- I never thought about
that! Can they detect those on a test? I know once you get them, you might as well keep them because they will more than likely come back.
Its ironic, but I would rather hear that I have indisputable bad news or diagnosis than, "Your test came back normal." Otherwise, I feel like the docs, friends, family, etc. think I'm lying about
my pain! I was all set to have my gallbladder removed. I mean, I really mentally prepared for it. Now, I feel like I have to start over. And my GI? Forget about
it, he doesn't care. Their office just told me to "go ahead and take the Vicodin as needed if I'm in pain, and call them if it doesn't get better." Wow. I feel sooooo taken care of!
BTW- Thanks for the support!

The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new
discoveries, is not "Eureka!" (I found it!) but "That's funny ..."
