I realise there were already posts about this but I thought I'd start another because all the replies there were 'over a year ago'
I have a problem reported by many here, I have a dull 'ache' (for want of a better word) where my GallBladder used to be.
My problems started with this dull ache under my ribs on the right hand side. I was sent for ultrasound and found to have stones.
I suffered for a while with the 'ache' and if i'm honest it started to really get on my nerves. It doesnt so much hurt as annoy like crazy, especially when it seems to be flaring up. (when it can be considered at it's worst)

Gabapentin, Omeprazole, and another drug I forget the name of.
Currently on PreGabalin and having it drive me insane.. STILL.
Thanks for listening all.
