    Oh yes !! Drive up the demand and the prices will follow in the insane pricing war before they (slowly) let loose on the supply and make a nice little fortune. Do you remember the .22 caliber fiasco a few years back ? You couldn't find a freakin box of .22 ammo anywhere at any price. It has the effects of creating horders out of all of us. Just like with toilet paper.

    Congratulations to Bob ! And of course to ALL of us losers that made it all possible.
  3. *Normally I have excellent spelling and grammar but lately I've been kind of off my A game. And finding a Titleist in your gall bladder is one of those signs that you might have a problem. I had ZERO gall stones but an awful looking bladder and had to get it out ! My stomach still hurts like hell right now.
  4. Thanks everyone for your thoughts I've learned a lot about gall bladder surgery now. They went in and found out Wednesday that it was really BAD had to come out. My surgeon said it was one of the worst she's seen and remember I had NO prior symptoms. She said occasionally male men 70+ like me can have no symptoms but have a bad or very bad gall bladder and not show it until it until it is too late. So if you think that you might even have a GB issue have a doctor check it out before it is too late. I had a GB removed Wednesday and she put a big temporary stent in for drainage and removed it today Friday in another procedure. They left two stents in and a drain line hooked to a JP (I think it's called) drainage bag that I'll get out in about a month. Although I didn't have any cancer I had a slight jaundice so ask your doctor at your next appointment I didn't know anything about GB illnesses until I got my covid-19 shot #2 and started to show symptoms at ended up in the hospital. I'm going to be here for a while now and see what happens. I was lucky and did NOT have cancer ! It's a ***UPDATE ANOTHER SURGEON JUST LEFT MY ROOM, I get the JP drain out in about two weeks in the surgeon's office and the stents in three to four weeks in the hospital similar to the surgery I had today***. AND I get a *colonotomy done in a few days here in the hospital. Get it done guys ! *corrected spelling .........★ So see your doctor's soon guys and guys get your check ups ! It might just save your life.
  5. Optional in Ohio thank goodness, meanwhile something to dream about when I'm under today. Purple 💜 haze is in my brain.......
  6. Surgery scheduled Wednesday morning at 09:15 am, not bad adios gall bladder. I'm ready. mjp.
  7. I'm surprised how many people here have had GB surgery -but- I'm the first in my family. I'll be NPO for the third time in one week here.......geeezzzz can't wait to get it over.
  8. Could have been, it probably set off my high white count (15-17) even though I was on IV antibiotics. Normally IVs will knock down or out about anything real quick when they don't then you have something else brewing....... good bye gall bladder it was nice knowing you. And I never had any symptoms but shot #2 might have got everything all jacked up. I was getting quite sick and NOT normal covid-19 shot sick. Oh well with any luck I might be home 🏡 by Friday/Saturday.
  9. Thanks ! When they find out that you have a gall bladder issue they sure don't mess around. Monday scope, Tuesday schedule, Wednesday out ! And maybe home 🏠 in a day or two.
  10. Email #2 sent to my family and friends. Summary:. Got Phizer shot #2 Monday 3/15. Went ok until Thursday then all hell broke loose. Got VERY sick a disoriented, 103 temp for 4 days. Monday got even worse had to go to ER Tuesday morning. Doctors think it might have triggered my auto immune system. ~But~. my white count still high even on IV antibiotics. Monday 3-29 had a "scope job" of my gall bladder, showed infected areas plus they put in two stents in the drain lines. I had NO GB symptoms at all. Wednesday 3/31 scheduled to have a laperoscopy to have my gall bladder out. IF all goes well I may be home 🏠 in days after that. Well hallelujah I got my covid-19 shots done and waiting period done ! -But- I just have to find a way to stay out of the hospital. Catch you later. Michael and Nancy. ....... * And I edited my post this Saturday !
