Dealing with GB issues

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi

All of this information has been so helpful to me. As I am experiencing most of the same symptoms many of you had posted on here. A laundry list I had to start writing down because I couldn't remember them all when going into the doctor's office. Most of them would come and go, but that nagging pain (stabbing, aching) under my right rib pain was most constant. At first didn't realize it was GB issues because I was recovering from Kidney stone surgery, with stent placement. When I insisted to my GP that this pain was different, I insisted on a HIDA scan, in which I had just heard about. Within a week I was scheduled for that and now scheduled for surgery next Tuesday. After going to my GP office 1-2 times a week for 2 months, I finally have some answers and relief in sight. I am amazed at how long some of you have had to deal with all of these symptoms. Within the last few days things have progressively gotten worse, and I have become pretty weak because I can't hardly eat anything without it hurting very badly.

Thank you to all who have shared their stories, it really does help. Makes me feel like I am not alone in all of this, family and friends try their best to understand, but its hard.

If you feel that there is something wrong don't give up, be your own health advocate. I was tired of going into my GP's office, but I wanted answers because deep down I knew there was something wrong. I had a gut feeling from the beginning that it was my GB and I was right.
