This made me rethink....

I start my duty 7am, upon arriving in ER... I saw my colleague laying on of the beds there. He was in agony and saying he is feeling severe pain in his abdomen. After a few test, ultrasound reveals he has 2 gallstone in his gallbladder and the biggest was 2.6 cm. He was healthy guy. Active and well desciplined. He eats right ( i think ) and we play basketball every day off. Later evening, after my shift, I'd ask my friend to do an ultrasound on my kidney and liver. 2 days from now I'll ask them to check my blood chemistry as well. I'm healthy, but today, the situation really made me think... How about you? How healthy are you? Photo is from Google..

I have some things that are wrong with me, but so far no gallstones. Some families are predisposed to them. My blood chemistry gets checked on a regular basis and all those other labs. Generally witth gall stones you may not know anything is wrong until they show up. You may have nausea and stuff for a while but kind of pass it off as nothing.

I don't know, my friend. Haven't had a health checkup for a while now. Yeah, I am suffering from insomnia though, so I guess I'm not fully healthy. But it doesn't mess up with my routine work though. I take a few short naps in the afternoon. So I guess, it's okay that way. (*_*)

Normally I won't get something checked unless I am having problems with something.. I have had my gallbladder removed, Sometimes it just doesn't matter how healthy you are or what you eat, Some of the healthiest people I know have the most health issues.

First, I hope your tests show that you are very healthy! I'm not at all healthy. I smoked for 40 years before I quit 10 months ago and now I have a lot of trouble breathing. It is better than it was as my poor lungs fight to clean themselves but I can't walk far without getting out of breath. I have hypertension and there is something wrong with my heart, the doctor suspects, but I can't afford the tests to find out what it is. Now I have noticeable swelling in my left leg and I have no clue why. So I'm not in very good health. Since I found out about the hypertension I've cut out most of the sodium from my diet and I'm sure that's better for me. I'm glad you found out what was wrong with your colleague. Is he having his gallbladder removed? I hope not, that will be a major lifestyle change.

@dragon54u I'm sorry to hear about your condition. One good thing is you quit smoking. That is acutally one of the reason your being hypertensive. Swelling of your feet is because of high fluid retention of your body. Diabetes Insipidus and kidney problems are some of the disease that can cause that swellin. Do a personal observation... Try to measure you fluid intake and output....
Not that healthy. I fell into the bathroom many years ago on my right arm and it is in bad shape and then my left arm is like my left. I have rhinitis and I suffer very badly in the winter and can get bronchitis and sinusitis. I have appointments with my doctor almost every month so he can keep an eye on me.
