    Maria, I’m exactly the same. I would suggest going to see a different doctor and telling them you KNOW what it is. Tell them and they will do the scan. I had my ultrasound results back today and everything is fine. But disappinted by that as I feel worse than ever today and can’t keep food down. Only water.  Got told yesterday by a psychiatrist that it might be psychosomatic, aka all in my head. I don’t know how to cope with that and have sobbed all day, I even phoned the Samaritans. I don’t know what to do anymore. I can’t carry on living with this. I have no life and I feel like it’ll never get better. Got my gastroenterology appointment tomorrow so we’ll see how that goes. Hoping he doesn’t write me off as a nut like all the others.

    Hi Maria I am in the same trouble too I've been ill since Christmas have I got been in hospital about 5 times with really bad pain in the end gave me a ERCP and they fount a gall stone stuck in my bile duct sent me home again and gave me another appointment for another ERCP to have it out . I  never fitted the remit for gall stones because I wa slim weighed about 8 stone just right for my height of 5.ft 2 ins I now weigh only 6 stone not eaten a good meal without pain for at least 5 months because I was Miss diagnosed. I have to see a gall stone doctor 1st of June all,that time I have waited they don't care that I was miss diagnosed at all . I am in constant  pain and feel nauseas after eating too so we can be fed up together .💐 I a man in England at the mercy of the failing NHS .🙏

     I have to go on the boat this gallbladder surgery does not always help everybody in fact some people can   More problems afterwards.  However I would still go get it checked because it would be better to have it checked because it can rupture and that can also lead to problems . So I would recommend going to see a doctor. You can ask the doctors if you can have an a evaluation by a  surgeon  who does gallbladder surgery. Get the records from the hospital that you have had a history of gallstones In the bile duck or you can ask for a HIDA scan. I am in the USA.
