"Following on from the toothache, one of three lumps of fat on my left buttock became swollen and painful. It was right at the spot that bears the most weight when I sit, so I went to the hospital to have it removed, but they did it without anesthesia, and it hurt so much I thought I would die! About two weeks later, when that wound was just healing up, I had the other two lumps surgically removed, too. So in the end, for about one month, I was forced to work while sitting only on my right buttock. It was hell…"


While searching for Gohan and Kuririn, Dodoria meets his end at the hands of Vegeta. Vegeta learns the true fate of Planet Vegeta. Gohan and Kuririn take Dende to their camp, where they learn Goku is on his way. Vegeta has a rather unfortunate run-in with Zarbon.
