Congratulations! It's a...Gall Bladder!

...and it's 2" and 1 oz.

Slightly icky piece in the Times today.

I had my gallbladder out in 1990, have the 6" scar in my abdomen to prove it, and am just fine with that. No need to go poking around "down there" any more than necessary, am I right people?

Those must be bloody men dr's! Notice how there is no mention of making a small incision in the scrotum or pulling it out the end of the penis!

Come on guys, leave us alone!

Interestingly, the Times first titled the piece something like "Doctors Perform Gall Bladder surgery Via the Vagina," which obviously caught my attention. But someone at the mag obviously thought it was a bit too tabloid for the NYT, so it got retitled to a more sedate NYT-like caption about new methods of gall bladder surgery.

MK, you crack me up. Indeed, where is the penis in all of this?
Welcome Jen.
Amy, ja dit klink vreeslik, jong. Seker!

Almost too bizarre and creepy to think about, but then when I do all my mind focuses on is the 2 very large babies I pushed out via that exact route. I needed every bit of stretching my body could muster down there and any scar tissue would not have been helpful. So we can get our gallbladders removed without a scar but then we need c-sections afterwards anyway because nothing stretches properly anymore...Great idea boys....

Yeah, how come there is so much excitement over getting organs out of our vaginas, when doctors seem more than willing to slice that abdomen to get a baby out via c-section? That said, I'd be their surgical slut any day; after pushing out a baby I tend to think my vajayjay can take anything.
