Had my gallbladder out two days ago. The pain seemed to subside quite fast and wasn't excruciating for long so I was walking about gingerly today keeping reasonably active.
I had a light dinner with my family tonight and almost immediately I started eating the pain seized my upper abdomen and hasn't stopped despite taking Omparazole. How normal is this doubling up type of pain after food and continuing despite slow release Tramadol and Omaprazole and even a sleeping pill? I also take steroids for rheumatoid arthritis and am trying to taper slowly off now. These could make me more vulnerable to infection, however the wound sites look clean, little bleeding has stopped and no reddened tissue. The pain is all at the top just under my ribs - it is too severe for me to cope with for too much longer. I'm worried because it's Friday. Should I try for an urgent GP appointment rather than bother a very busy s hospital?
