NEVER by halves

I've been having some stomach pains, kind of on and off, for a few years. Sometimes I think it's diet related, sometimes I'm not so sure.

'Gall bladder' people said.

'Stomach ulcer' people said.

'Wind. Possibly fat pain' I said.

Turns out I was wrong and people were right. But I haven't done anything by halves.

Apparently, according to some tests I've had recently, I have a stomach ulcer. AND gallstones.

And a very sore tummy.

Ohhhhh honey. That's terrible. I passed my gallstones luckily. They hurt for awhile even after they pass. Seems they are spikey and tear you up along the way. i lost quite a bit of weight too quickly due to some stress, and that is how the gallstones formed.
What I learned: keep eating. or at least drink things when I am too stressed out to eat.

Oh dear. That does not sound good. Hope that the sore tummy goes away soon.

Oh, you poor thing. Hope the doctor will be able to make you feel better soon. Take care.

Oh dear is no good! Cut out lactose, fizzy drink and high fat food for the gall stones. There you go, instant diet! LOL (I think I have gall stones too) Hope you feel better soon.

Bad luck. I have had the gallstones (gall bladder gone now) but I suppose I'll have to have an ulcer now, so I can keep up with you.

I am feeling your pain! Hope you feel better soon.

Ouch! I hope you're taking care of yourself, and getting plenty of rest (and knitting time).

Oooooh nasty! I've just had the gallstones and they're bad enough on their own, so you have my deepest sympathy
