How I’m doing…

The shingles is improving. The rash is gone, but the skin in that area is still numb, like a foot that’s asleep. No telling how long that will last, but it isn’t actively painful, so that’s good.

But I was still having pain, so after an ultrasound I have been informed that I have gallstones.

They are not blocking anything, and the gallbladder is not infected, so I have some time to figure out what to do. The doctor, of course, suggests having it removed. That is, the whole gallbladder. Which seems a bit drastic to me.

Since it’s a bit painful, but not going to kill me, I’ve decided to try a few other options before I get drastic and have it yanked out.

My first acupuncture appointment is scheduled for next Tuesday. We shall see if she thinks there is hope for solving this problem.

  1. Good luck with the gallbladder issues. Sometimes I think I have them as well. I cannot eat greasy, spicy or heavy foods in general. Hope the acupuncture helps!
