You want to do what?!

I went to see the doctor this morning. Because I've recently moved to Dallas, this would be a new doctor for me. I explained to him a pain I sometimes get in my right side. It's a sharp, stabbing pain that I get with no regularity and it only lasts a minute or two. After he asked some questions about the pain, he told me he suspected it had something to do with my gall bladder. And he told me about a series of tests he wants to do to determine it's some horribly unpronounceable medical name relating to my gall bladder. Then he says, we might have to surgically remove it. What?! But there's nothing to worry about. Because apparently he's had two other female patients who complained about a similar pain and have had their gall bladders removed and they're just fine. And still I'm thinking: you want to do what?! So I gave the bloodsuckers in the lab some of the high quality stuff and now I have to schedule an ultra-sound. Man, I hope I don't come back from that ultra-sound and find out I'm pregnant!
