As posted before I have been struggling with gall bladder symptoms for 5 weeks now. After an ultrasound just showed only an enlarged bile duct and no stones, the doc at the hospital are thinking more gastro infection. So far my blood test have all come back fine apart from showing an infection (not enough to keep me in hospital) I have upper right quadrant pain that starts under my ribs and goes round to my back. It can be intense for anything up to 2 days and at other times I'm left with a dull achy pain and feeling sore. My heart rate was up to 115 when checked by the docs the other day which caused concern but even though infection is showing up my temp is fine but I have bouts of feeling feverish with chills and go very clammy and hot to touch. After being sent home from the surgical assessment unit yet again with nothing but pain killers that won't even touch the pain I have pretty much given up with the docs for help as all I get is you'll have to wait for an endoscopy (which could be another 3 weeks) I've had 2 a&e visits 5 docs appointments 2 out of hrs appointments and been twice to the surgical assessment unit in 5 weeks so I really have given up hope of anything getting sorted before the endoscopy. My problem today is this morning my right side is tender and aching but I have severe pain in my left side now which starts of sharp and dulls to an ache/cramping pain. Could this be all related to a possible blockage in my bile duct if the pain is on the left now too. I'm worried the infection has become worse but without knowing where the infection is in the first place I'm so confused as to what to worry about and what not to worry about. I just don't want to call my docs to get the same answer as always "you have to wait for the test" has anyone suffered with both left and right upper quadrant pain and should I just carry on in pain or am I right to be concerned. This has been the most stressful 5 weeks of my life I'm just so fed up. I've been off work for 3 weeks and just been signed off for a further 2 because the pain is that bad but they don't seem to be listening at all 😕
