Recently I had to get an abdominal and pelvic ultrasound and the experience was – as many things are in my life these days – absurd. The technician slicked me down with so much gel that I was worried my ostomy bag would fall off! The whole process seemed to be taking forever, she scrutinized the computer screen with a concerned look on her face – not what you want to see. Then she asked me if my gallbladder had been removed during my cancer surgery. “Why?! Has it gone missing?!” I cried. WTH!
Next, she asked me to stand up. So there I was, naked, except for my Forever 21 banana socks, slicked down like I was ready for some oddball porno, my ostomy bag starting to fill up with its usual liquid grossness and the technician jamming me with the wand. “The Case of The Missing Gallbladder!” I said with a dramatic flourish. She did not seem to appreciate my humor. Finally she found the little bastard! He was hiding and kind of “flipped over”- whatever the hell that means. She left the room looking very relieved and I started the process of de-glazing myself. #glamorouslife
