Hello all!! Ok well firstly I do have gallstones. I found out in June 2014 by having a ultra sound. I saw my gp the next day and she referred me to the hospital the day after that. I had not heard anything so I found up the hospital last week and they said that there is a 5 month wait, and that is just to see the consultant!! Does anyone know roughly how long after seeing the consultant that the operation gets done? Im on a low fat diet but still have 1 big attack atleast once a month!! Its a lot better than it was, but this attack is huge (its like it builds up and explodes all at once), Im in agony for most of the night with being sick 3-4 times (which is very unusual for me as I have never been sick apart from when I have these attacks). I take buscopan 3 times a day, and a doctor gave me some low co-codemol for the pain. I think its only 8mg!! And they are doing nothing, so Im hoping to phone up my gp tomorrow and get some stronger pain relief tablets. After these attacks, Im out of action for nearly a week!! My ribs feel like I have gone ten rounds with Mike Tyson, the top of my back aches like mad, tired, feel sick, and no energy at all!! I had a attack a few days ago, and my stomach and ribs still ache. It feels like a brick is sitting ontop of me. Its not a sharp pain but a aching horrible sicky pain. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make it go away? Also recently, Ive been having these weird attacks (I dont know what else to call them). Its only happened 3 times, and Im just sitting down and it happens all of a sudden. My left hand side of my stomach aches like a period pain, then the base of my back aches like mad, and I then get all hot, sweaty and dizzy....but it only lasts for like 2 minutes and then starts dying down!! Im back to normal within 5 mins of it starting!! I dont know if this is anything to do with my gallstones as its not the side of my gallbladder, and its only happened 3 times in the last month. I need to talk to my doctor about that aswell, but I was just wondering if anyone has had that happen before. Its not a sharp pain, but a achy bad period type of pain. I would be very grateful for your help Thank you xx
