Het Andyy: Just saw this post of yours. I'm with you on the conservative attitude of keeping the gall bladder (the body's toxic waste disposal service) despite the discomforts. It serves some important functions -- such as cleansing your body of some nasties like prostaglandins and leukotrienes which some authorities believe ultimately can contribute to rheumatoid arthritis if allowed to accumulate.
As far as hunting for tiny ones, being able to hear and retrieve such subdued signals is excellent practice for those days that we successfully recognize the ghostly whisper of a lunker lurking way down low.
Glad you are feeling better.
Wow! Glad to know he seems to be okay. There may be some interesting back stories to this -- both the guy's and the good samaritan's. I hope he wasn't just taking a selfie. Looking forward to learning the details. Thanks for posting.
