    I was told that I had gastritis several times, until I ended up in hospital and had to have my gallbladder removed which was very badly infected and full of gallstones. Best thing is to get your liver and gall bladder scanned (ultrasound usually). Hope you get better soon.

    Just ended up with irritable bowel syndrome after the op, fine now though. They told me that my gall bladder was fine 6 months before I was rushed in, yet another hospital mistake! Hope you feel better soon smile
