Hi, my name is Chrissie im 19 and have recently been in hospital due to severe abdominal pain. Blood tests showed my liver function was abnormal. They said they "thought" i may have a gallstone in my liver and gave me codiene and paracetamol and busapan. And made an appointment for a couple days later in out patients for an ultrasound.
The ultrasound showed i only had one small gallstone in my gallbladder. And they didnt underdtand why that small stone xould be causing me so much pain.
I have had numerous occasions in the last 5months of extreme upper stomach pains. (It started when i was 7/8months pregnant) sometimes i can manage at home by curling up in a ball and just crying out in pain. And other times ive had to go to A&E.
After the ultrasound i was given antibiotics for a possible infection (there were no whiye blood cells or signs i had an infection)
And given ibrupfen and more paracetamol. (Which do not even slightly touch the pain)
They made me another appointment for my liver function blood tests to be checked. And once again for the third time my liver function is "abnormal" the doctor says it is biliary colic and i should be ok. The hospital have booked me in for an MRI scan on the 26th September.
But today I can feel the pain is coming on again. The pain isnt as severe as it usually is. And fingers crossed it doesnt get that bad. But im not sure what to do. Do i go back to A&E if it gets worse or do i stick it out at home and just wait for it to pass.
I have a 12week old baby that i cant even bend down to pick up or cuddle for long because any pressure on my stomach hurts more. Im so fed up of the pain. And dont know what more i can do.
They mentioned that eating less fatty foods can help. But does anyone have any tips? Or anything that can relieve the pain a little?
Sorry for the long post. Xx
