    You have all my sympathy.

    Yeah, they should have told you.

      It does my heart (but not my ribs) good to know that people are LTA'sO.

      I do my best. I hope you're one of the lurkers who read "You Picked Orange" (which should be back on track [and nearing the end... only 20-30 more chapters to go!] as soon as I can get three feet away from a vomitorium).

      No, really, I ain't doin' that Contrast dye deal again. I'll tell them, "Just knock me out,  slice me open and go rooting around in there, take stuff out, put stuff over there, if you've got a lipo machine, trundle it on in and get rid of that gut I grew because I couldn't do ANY exercise because of this, OH YEAH, Umbilical HERNIA which, if you would, please, FIX."

      Ucch.

      :)

        specific about how long the vomiting might last?

        my medical authority (amateur but VERY good at this stuff) says vomiting shouldn't last more than 2-3 hours, and they should have given you an "anti-emetic" to forcibly stop the up-chucking if necessary... in case you should need it. (I got a bottle of something to take home with me, in case I needed it, when I had my colonoscopy...)

        your insides can get into spasm and not be able to stop throwing up by themselves. If you're completely empty, but still going, producing only bile, call them! If your guts get into the spasm thing, you can't keep anything down, not even a teaspoonful of water! any thing new landing will come right back up again within 5 minutes. I've had that happen once. no fun at all.

        hope all is calm by now!!
