I have been diagnosed with possible gallstones waiting for a scan, I have had bouts of pain but not taken to hospital, I'm now getting pain like a stitch on my left side under ribs is this related to gallstones does anyone know? What can I do to stop it as its like an ache all the time and worse when I first wake up for about an hour. Any advise much appreciated.

    Hey Hun

    It could be related to the gallbladder issue

    Hot water bottle can help the aches and pains .

    Has your doctor given you any thing for the pain ?

    I take buscopan and that helps with the spasms etc ...

    Also on Omperazol daily and take paracetamol / ibuprofen when needed x

    Hope you are not waiting to long for your scan x
