Biliary Colic - Can this cause Pancreatitis or SOD?

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have had numerous, painful, biliary colic attacks over the past two years and been diagnosed with a solitary 2cm gallstone. My pain always starts either centralised LUQ or central, just under breastbone. My pain eventually goes round my back and then causes my right side to hurt. My left side is always painful and tender to touch and heavily bloated. My question is, could my problem be caused by SOD where my bile duct is getting blocked, drowning  my pancreas in its own enzyms and then effecting my gallbladder. Or is this typical symptoms of biliary colic

Also, another question I would like to ask, can you suffer with pancreatitis whilst having biliary colic?

I have  over the past two years deferred three operations as I really need to be sure that its my gallstone that is causing my pain and nothing else.

Please, if there is anyone that may be able to help me, then I would be most grateful

    First, if you have gallstones, sounds like you need to get those out. Has your pancreas been checked?

    I would advise you to have your gallbladder out, The gallstone needs to be got rid of.

    Take care
