When your nose is over shadowed by your gallbladder ...


I was going to write a post today about my nose. 

Yes, my nose.



It's been in rare form lately. Well, honestly, it's been in rare form since I returned home from the hospital with the grand and vague diagnosis of autoimmune failure. But it got in even rarer form, which I didn't think was possible, in the last month. So much so that I might need surgery {this one is supported by a medical professional known as an ENT}.

But, I am actually not going to go into that today. That's because we have to talk about my gallbladder, which unbeknownst to me, has been in rare form since August. And got in even rarer form, which I didn't think was possible, in the last day. So much so that I might need surgery {this one isn't currently supported by a medical professional because I am holding off whether to go in or not tomorrow morning}. 

Yes. this is my life. 

I've mentioned before that I haven't been able to eat food without taking medicine twice daily. The past week, even with the medicine I have been getting so, so sick with food. I went to my witch doctor and her solution was just to take more of the medicine, which I obliged {I am so obedient!}. It made it so I could eat food again and I thought life was okay-ish {considering the information I got regarding my rotting nose yesterday - yes, it is rotting}.

Yes, this is my life.

But in the wee-hours of the morning I felt a sharp pain in my upper-right abdomen. And it reminded me that I have felt this a couple times before in the last week or so. Except this time it was far more severe and lasted a lot longer. I immediately go to the world-wide web to find out what was wrong with me, and it said gallbladder problems.

I then took my concerns to my favorite physician, Dr. Green. He seconded the idea of gallbladder problems. 

I then called a local gastroenterologist {which is a very difficult word for me to say for some reason}. And then can't get me in until next week {the day before my CT scan for my nose}. And they said if it gets any worse, I should just go to the ER. 

So, while this was going to be a post about my nose, it is a post about my gallbladder. And my autoimmune failured life. 

It's party time, chumps. I will be sure to let you know how it goes, because I would love nothing more than to have surgery on my nose and gallbladder in the same month. 

That's all.

Oh Mindy I'm sorry! I know I just posted on your instagram… I had rhynoplasy (nose surgery) a little over a year ago. Recovery sucks, just preparing you, but you're tough you'll make it through. I hope you get this all figured out!

Oh and this is Ruth, not Kyle obviously.

That really stinks. I hope that you get feeling better quickly and that you don't have to have surgery if possible.

Got my gallbladder out 7 years ago. I couldn't eat for months. As soon as I got out of surgery I was hungry and stared eating again. I still have problems wit- certain foods, and I can't have a lot of foods, but better than not eating. PS if they cant see anything on the ct insist on a nuclear test! They wouldn't have found my issues with out it.

I had my gall bladder out last year and I feel lots better. The first week was rough but overall my gallbladder had been dying for so long that it wasn't too bad of an adjustement, I had already adjusted to not having a gallbladder long before I had mine out. Good luck!!
