This might sound off, but I am having gallbladder symptoms and I also have a surgeon who thinks I should remove the gallbladder because it's been going on for 1 year and 3 months. I have had pancreatitis on/off, but I never have left sided pain (found via EUS) but the doctors said there's "No way I can have so much pain in my right upper quadrant in assoc with my pancreas," alone. Anyways... HIDA= normal and so was ultrasound, so they suspect maybe a long term lung infection went to my gallbladder. I know it's a digestive issue, because every time I eat fatty/fried etc food... I have an attack. It involves the typical pain in my upper right abdomen, then goes to my right shoulder, and sometimes (not always) causes chest pain- then subsides after some time. The thing that boggles me (maybe because this has been going on so long with the reflux and nausea etc for about 4 years on/off)... is that now, I have more intense pain than ever before... and it seems to be affecting my lung. Nothing shows up "bad" on my lung CT/MRI... but it feels like I can't take a deep breath, and when I do- my whole right lung looks like it pops out of my abdomen. It's so bizarre. I also can not breathe when lying on my right side, and I can not exercise without the same exact attack happening, which happens when I eat spicy/ fatty/fried foods. Anyone else have a similar lung to gallbladder experience? Thanks! (I also have severe gastroparesis...though I have had pains like this for maybe 7 years... have hormone imbalance so I think it has to do with too much estrogen/ jacking up my gb/ endometriosis... and usually these kinds of pains would just come and go - They would only happen maybe 2-3 times per month, until now. Now, the pain is every day.) Lung/gallbladder connection, anyone?
