after a year of chest pains, back pains, swollen stomach etc etc etc.

The doctor now thinks it is down to my galbladder and is sending me for a scan.... The pain i have had the last few weeks in this area is really sore.

What i was wondering, if it is the galbladder could it have caused any long term injuries to other organs? Also is it ok to wait for an appointment or should i go to A & E?

Thanks in advance

    Please go asap!  I have studied all this for years and am not an expert or a nurse. I am a C.N.A. but, I do know these symptoms match gallstones in a gallbladder. I suffered one attack and that is all it took! get your gallbladder out as soon as you are diagnosed with gallstones. you may get your doctor to check your liver which works with your gallbladder. The Doctor can answer your questions and I am sure you have many. Let me know what your results are! I care very much.
