I figured I'd post a picture sheet for the curious.
- The top-left picture is the camera inside of me.
- The top-right picture is of a healthy liver and gall bladder.
- The bottom-left picture is of my own liver and gall bladder. Yuck. I guess the latter really did have to come out. That's comforting, I guess.
Hopefully, I'm okay. There's a little drainage, but it appears manageable. My throat is dry from the tubes they inserted and there's a bit of pain when I stand. Overall, it doesn't seem too bad with the cloth-covered reusable ice bag and oxycodone/acetaminophen they gave me.
Most of my pain seems to be on my left rather than my right. I'm wondering if it has to do with the stone attack I had earlier this week. It probably didn't help my hydration levels either. I think half the time I spent in the hospital was because they wanted me to urinate first. They gave up, sent me home and told me to enter the ER if I didn't go by 4AM.
... BTW, Nobody took this sick man up on The Gift Me Games Deal today? Tsk, tsk. Granted, I suppose buying for a possible dead man, coma patient or stroke survivor might not have been a wise investment. You still have time before Wednesday. Which is my birthday. Layer that guilt. ;)
