    Spent a little time at Cedars Sinai having my gallbladder removed. First operation in all my 70 years, and quite an experience, particularly the effects of anesthesia! Next time I'll opt for the rubber mallet. I did have the opportunity to take a shot while waiting on the gurney in the emergency room with my iPhone 6, using an available reflector which happened to be covering a security camera. No c&c necessary. I know, I know I probably should have used an off camera flash for fill, etc. :801: I figure I should get a "D" for this photo - for dedication. IMG_3770.jpg

    I had my gallbladder removed via emergency surgery as well.

    Lets just say, you will know where the nearest bathroom is at all time.

    Now this is an example of a real photographer! Thinking to take a picture...

    Did they deflate it like letting air out of a playground ball? Seems to be the way these procedures are done these days. Then I think they hook up a hose like on a vacuum cleaner...

    Get better soon.

    To the OP. I hope this is not TMI but I highly recommend you wake up every morning and have a cup of coffee and something to eat. That way 15 minutes after you eat, you get the bathroom trip out of the way. It's a lot better than later in the day when you are out and about.

    After you have your gallbladder out, sometimes your body gives you 1 minute to find a bathroom.

    You can read up on it if you want. It may not be like that for EVERY person, but a high percentage of people experience that.
