Quick update

I saw my OB yesterday and he checked out the reports from the ER. He said the little pieces of tissue is totally normal and should dissolve back into my body without issue. He said he didn't know why the ER doc even mentioned it, because it was so minor.

I dealt with retained placental tissue after Allison's birth and had to get another d&c at 6w postpartum, so I do know what to look for and I can say the pain I felt wasn't anything like what I had when that happened. It was more of a "bled like a stuck pig" thing and I'm not bleeding at all now. But hey, glad we checked it out just in case.

So I have a follow up with my primary care next week to discuss the gall bladder thing. It can totally resolve on it's own and next flare up again, so I don't know what he'll do. Maybe he'll order that test, maybe not. With only one true attack, who knows.

I'm SO fucking backed up with my reader. I have 900 posts to peruse, so forgive me for the lack of commenting. I'm going to try to get through them soon and at least read the most current posts from everyone.

I'm terrible but when I get backed up on my reader, I mark them as read and start over, lol.

Glad things look okay and hopefully the gall bladder thing will work out okay too.

I hope it's just one of those thing that goes away and is forgotten.

Take it easy.

Glad you got checked out and are ok for the moment. Don't worry too much about reading blogs. You do have to take care of yourself.
