According to Baldauf & Payne, one common digestive disorder is Gallstones(2008). Nearly a million people are diagnosed with gallstones each year, but amazingly only a quarter of them will require treatment. Gallstones are little pebbles in which are composed of cholesterol and bile composites, and the most common remedy is removal of the gallbladder. In my opinion, I feel that this is the best way to resolve the issue. I personally have gone through the pain for over 2 months, starting the morning after my son’s funeral and tried all kinds of home remedy’s to only fail to ease any of the pain. After making one trip to one emergency room and the doctor sending me home with synthetic morphine for the pain, and that not doing anything, I ended up in another emergency room less than 24 hours later. After going through the same tests and dealing with the pain for another 3 hours, I had a doctor ask me how I felt about having surgery. After everything was done and over with, the doctor had told me if I would have waited even 24 hours longer, my gallbladder would have ruptured and possibly killed me.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
