Dedicated to those
who have suffered
from Gall Stones...
It is not fun...

In a fetal position
I lay on the floor
In excruciating pain
I never felt before…
 
Pain, none can assuage,
Pulsating, throbbing
Just under my rib cage
Noon to early evening
 
And all I was doing
Eating a small salad,
The olive oil dressing
Didn’t know it was bad!
 
For the fat in the oil
Drove my gall bladder
Berserk; pumping bile
The stones made it madder
 
My bladder kept throbbing
Till I couldn’t stand!
On the floor, I was lying
My wits I can’t command!

I understand that the modern procedure is less painful, and requires less incision and shorter confinement. Had mine in 1984

The pain kept pestering me
