    Default The Ultimate Body Mod - Gallbladder surgery

    Been in Texas for two weeks now, and heading home tomorrow.

    Was visiting my daughter and grandkids, but last week had to have emergency Gallbladder surgery.

    Got me 16 staples and four holes in my stomach.

    Was a nice visit despite the hospital stay.
    Pavement sucks... :grrrrrr:

    Thanks for all the well wishes.

    All and all I never had any pain after the surgery.

    Stomach and back muscles are sore from trying to move around without splitting open.

    Really not looking forward to getting the staples out.

    Back to Michigan on Wednesday and work on Thursday.

    The rat race will keep me distracted...

    Glad to hear the healing appear to be on track (and no pain!). I'm always worried when I travel (work likes to keep me away from home often) that something crazy like that may happen and then I end up in a hospital that ends up not being "approved" in my health insurance plan. Travel safe!

    Get well soon. Now you need to get a tattoo of a zipper on top of the staple scars.
