Last week, my mom, sister and I flew to Seattle for a week of wedding shopping, paddle boarding, movie watching and the removal of my mother's gallbladder! She had it removed by means of laparoscopic cholecystectomy (say this with me, "co-lee-sist-eck-toe-mee"). For the last few years, at random occurrences, my mom would have horrible pains in her back and stomach area. It took the doctors a while to finally figure out that she was suffering from gallstones. Gallstones as in plural. I am thinking one or two stones, maybe five tops, (kind of like a kidney). Ha! Little did I know. What the doctors pulled out of her belly button (yes, this is the laparoscopic method), then cut and half and took a picture of, was not one or two stones, but instead a bag of peas or lima beans if you will.
The gallbladder is the green area that looks like baby food but grosser.
It would fit in you cupped hand.
I sincerely apologize if I grossed anyone out, but I find it fascinating.
