New to this site. After suffering excrutiating pain two nights on the trot, being on all fours unable to string a sentence together being so short of breath and finally to top it all being violently sick I went to the walk in clinic and was seen stry own GP on aight away by a GP who diagnosed the pain was my Gallbladder and has said should the pain persist or get any worse ( I have to say I dont believe it can as I have never felt pain like it and I consider myself to be a pretty tough cookie) I am to get to hospital and they should remove it. I have to go back and see my ownGP on Monday and have an ultrasound. I have some questions -
1. I ave been prescribed Naproxen has any body else been prescribed this and is it effective for the pain.
2. Is it likely should I have to go to hospital how likely is it that they will remove my Gallbladder.
3. After having an ultrasound and if it confirms it is my Gallbladder would I automatically be put on a list to have it removed.
4. Can you have the operation under local aneasthetic or does it have to be a general.
5. To prevent another episode can this be achieved through diet and if so what are the recommendations for this.
6. Can diet avoid operation.
I would hate to experience this again and would rather get this under control and manage it myself rather than have an operation, if that is possible.
I would appreciate any help in this area.
