Digestive Problems

Posted , 3 users are following.

I had my gallbladder removed almost a year ago now after developing gallstones during my pregnancy, since then I have flare ups with the similiar type of pains like when I had my gallstones but over the past few weeks this has been getting steadily worse with chest and abdominal pains, loose bowels, basically in agony anytime I eat anything even although I am watching what I eat and trying to stick to a healthy diet.

I have been to my GP on several ocassions and I am now on 40mg of omneprazole a day as well as buscopan, however the pains over the weekend have been terrible, havent been out of bed, cant eat, being sick, my GP says I need to wait for my consultant appointment with the General Surgery dept but thats not until 10 October, I honestly cant face another month of being in this pain.

Can anyone give me advice, my GP no help at all and hospital wont ive me an earlier appointment

    You'll get to the Hospital and the Consultant will say s / he'll put you down for a Gastroscopy then it'll be another 2 - 3 months until blah blah blah rolleyes neutral I realize that I probably don't need to tell you but however bad the pain gets don't be tempted to take Ibuprofen, one pill could set you back weeks neutral

    Sounds like you have a condition called sphincter of oddi dysfunction which can occur after GB removal.If you google it there is lots info on it.
