I will never forget April 11, 2012. It was the day I got 7 (seven) needles injected/poked into my body: two of which were for pain relievers, one to attach the dextrose, two for skin testing and the other two for blood samples. It was a painful and crazy day! And yes, I was admitted to the hospital because of the pain I was experiencing.
To make the long story short, I was admitted last April 11 to 14 and from that I discovered that I have gallstones. I was expecting I will have some kidney complications because of my salty and cola lifestyle so I did my very best to prevent this by trying to drink plenty of water and cranberry juice. But little did I know that my fatty food eating rampage would be the cause of my pain and hospital admission. SAD but an awakening too!
My attending doctor advised for open surgery because I have a swollen gall bladder and my gallstones are a lot but since I don’t have enough money for this. I opted to get discharged. We are also seeking for a second opinion as soon as possible hoping that there are other alternatives aside from surgery. I hoped that medicines or any alternative herbal medicines will dissolve these gallstones I got. So for the mean time that I haven’t got a final decision on surgery, I am starting to change my diet to prevent further attack.
So to all my friends, especially those who are living the same blogging lifestyle I have, aside from drinking a lot of water, stay moderated on fatty foods. I admit, most of my favorite foods are fatty. 🙁
