Ode to a gallbladder

Oh gallbladder, why do you still hurt me?
You haven't been with me since December last,
But the memory of you is still like a stitch in my side.
Literally.

The pain is not as bad as when you were around,
But it's there none the less
And it makes me frown.

It's not even a constant bother,
Just a stab here and there.
But when it happens you make yourself known
And I clutch my side as if it will help.
I know you won't bother me all of my days,
And I still have 4 cool scars from when you died.
Looks like I got the better end of the deal.

Sorry if you find this post odd. But I guess that's typical of me, haha. My used-to-be-gallbladder still hurts me every once and a while, and it gets annoying.
I guess you would call it the phantom gallbladder. I feel tons better without, don't get me wrong. But the fact that it's not even there and it still hurts just irritates me a little. Oh well. People I've talked to have said it took theirs a year to feel normal...guess I'll just have to wait it out. :)
