But laparoscopic cholecystectomies are very effective.

Blimey, is that a new version of the ipad?

Thanks for sharing your stories and all your best wishes - I am feeling much better - and looking forward to seeing one of my favourite performers this evening - Alison Moyet.

There was a point on Thursday when I thought I wouldn't get to see her.

I am well jel!!

I adore her voice: like smooth chocolate.   You'll enjoy it all the more with the thought you may have been forced to miss it.

Sing loudly, and with gusto - and I hope you're almost word perfect.

I know - I've been hooked since I saw Yazoo way back in the mists of time - I try to catch her every time she tours as she never fails to amaze me.

This tour is a sort of electronica tour which along with her new album "The minutes" she will also be singing older stuff like "Nobody's Diary" and "Don't go" - altho the highlight for me will be an old, old song of hers called "Winter Kills" which is great (depressing -  but great )

Brilliant - I will think of you this evening, singing along.

I loved her best I think back in the old Yazoo days, then she seemed to lose her way for a little while.  But her voice has always remained amazing.

For a Shostakovich fan that's no criticism

Glad you're Ok Trent. I've had a couple of episodes  so I know how painful and how frightening it can be.

Quote:
Fortunately, although on occasion I've been given the hard sell about having my gallbladder removed, they're not a problem:


I was advised to have my gallbladder removed but because of what else was going on in my life I deferred it. Well that plus I wasn't totally convinced. It's been several years since I've had an episode but everytime I get a little niggle I get concerned that it might be another one.

The pain is comparable to giving birth to a dead baby (my first confinement) without the benefit of pain relief stuck on your own in a side ward. I tried ringing the bell but was told 'not to make a fuss'. So I didn't. As the pain got worse and worse I just thought 'you can't live through pain like this' so when the next pain came I thought 'oh good I'm dead now' then when the next came I thought 'bloody hell you feel pain when you're dead !!!!' It didn't occur to me that I was actually still alive ..... eeejit!

Eventually a more senior nurse came in from another ward and went ballistic at their having left me on my own especially once I'd told her that the baby was dead! (She'd said I was ready to push and had positioned herself ready to receive 'it' so I thought I'd better warn her.)

Anyway the whole point of that story was to say that the doctor who came to examine me afterwards was ever so dishy with a gorgeous Irish accent. I felt so guilty for having those sort of thoughts at a time like that!

Apparently it's quite normal ... it's the brains way of making the best of a bad situation

Blimey, Ivy, that must have been awful! I'm so relieved I ain't a woman!
