So I’ve been having some odd stomach cramping. It’s not continuous and nothing in particular triggers it and it’s annoying. I’ve have ultra sounds and ct scans and it’s all quite annoying and frustrating.
At my ct scan (with and without contrast if you are interested) they noticed a hernia and gallstones. I asked my gastro what the next step is- was referred to general surgeon.
Go to general surgeon who looked at my scans very closely (along with a very bright and ambitious resident). The surgeons remarks:
You have a pristine gall bladder. I see one gall stone. One. I will not operate on a perfectly fine bladder with one teeny tine stone. That is not causing cramping.
As you your bowels, frankly, from the scans they are beautiful.
Doesn’t every woman want to be told that they have beautiful bowels?
As to your hernia- while you do have one, it is minor, and frankly you could probably push it back in yourself if you need to. Your hernia is not causing your cramping.
So- what is causing my cramping?
Well, you still have your colonoscopy coming up, which will give us one more look to make sure we haven’t missed anything, but outside of that…my medical opinion as to what’s causing your cramping?
Some people are naturally gassy. You appear to be one of those people.
So there you have it. There is now medical proof that I am full of hot air.
I am grateful that my bowels are beautiful and my gall bladder is pristine.
I am grateful that as of now I do not need surgery.
I am grateful for a general surgeon with a pleasant personality.
I am grateful for all those who read this post about my gassy nature.
