Hi please could someone advice me . I started with pain in my rib area spreading around to middle back 6 days ago . I went to accident and emergency on day 4 as i was still in pain . After lots of checks they said i have biliary colic. What i need advice on is even though the pain has gone down a little it is still painful and i am off work i feel really tired , will this pain ever go as the doctor at hodpital said i may never have an attack again and monitor it .I have no idea if this pain should have gone by now ?He said to follow a low fat diet . I would really appreciate any advice from anyone who has experienced this . Thankyou x

    Hi Nicola.  had this issue on two occasions ands I completely rethought my diet. I now have a two minute porridge first thing, followed by a wholemeal bread sandwich or something like that at lunchtime with a dinner mainly comprised of vegetables and less of the meats etc. Havnt had anything since then although I initially noticed that small feelings of sensitivity diminished over a week.

    Had the same thing..  YES..It will come back.. I had 3 attacks then went 6 years until my next one.. BUT IT CAME BACK..  What concerns me is you went 4 days with an attack???.. Mine would last 3-5 hours at most. Did they find stones??>  If a stone lodged in your duct it can be LIFE THREATING! Ultra sound can show stones.. If you have stones.. Get Gallbaldder OUT
