Farewell to a biliary vesicle

Dear Gallbladder,

We've been together for 31 years, and yet I feel like I hardly know you. Now you're leaving. Where did we go wrong? I'd wish you well in your future endeavors, but seeing as you will likely be incinerated within moments of leaving me, that seems a little callous. Just for old times' sake, though, please leave without making a scene?

Gratefully, Tamsin

Dear Gallstones,

I don't remember inviting you to visit, but this is me inviting you to leave. If you must take my gallbladder with you, so be it. But I think you're quite rude.

Unwaveringly, Tamsin

PS. I am undecided about whether or not I may keep you in a jar. We shall see.

Tomorrow is the big day. No more gallbladder for me!


  1. Hoping everything goes okay!- holla at me when you're feeling better!xxx

  2. Good luck Tamsin!!! Hope everything goes smoothly for you.

  4. They sent my dad's gallstones to him ... they look really cool (just like rocks in the garden). And yup, he kept them :)! Good luck!

  5. Good luck! You are the second Blogger I Know who is having their gallbadder out.
    Blessings, Joanne

  6. Hope you have a speedy recovery. Good luck!

  7. I hope everything went well and that you don't miss poor Mr. Gallbladder too much! Call if you can think of something I can do!

  8. Feel better soon! I had mine out earlier this year- it was a tough recovery (but I was hot off the heels of a c-section, so that may have made it worse) also be ready for a change in what you can eat. In the beginning I seriously paid for a hamburger- or just a sprinkling of cheese on anything. Email if you wan to commiserate.

  9. gallstones are the WORST!! I am happy that you got rid of that sorry ol' gallbladder! When I got mine out my recovery was a bit longer than they had led me to believe (a couple weeks), so just watch out! I was mainly very very tired. Also, since I have had mine out, i have noticed that when I eat something heavy or greasy it is rough on my body. BTW I asked for some of my gallstones and they wouldnt let me keep it! http://tinybutclassy.blogspot.com/2010/01/gallbladders-are-sooo-out.html
