Second Reading

About Bladder and kidney stones

Korhomme  •  Link

I was a surgeon before retirement; I understand what bladder calculi are. I have removed them; I've also removed gallbladders for gallstones.

This isn't so much an annotation, as an attempt at a correction. For the past decade or so, many authors, who should know better, have referred to the operation that Sam had as being for 'gallstones'.

I did read this somewhere, probably in a biography of a contemporary, but I cannot now find the original.

Can anyone help?
