gallbladder pain

Posted , 4 users are following.

Finally got an appointment to go see gastroenotology on 21st august about getting my gallbladder out, pain has got worse over last few days , had to go up to emergency doctor on Sunday night as it was that bad and my co codomol wasnt working, got the usual check up and jag on the bum and sent home, been in pain all day again and only had a slice of toast this afternoon, pain seems to be changing like from tummy to inbetween my chest and all up my back, has any1 else had this sort of pain? Hate keep goin back to doctor's every few days as sometimes think they think im playin up, thanksxx

    Why would you? The Doctors have little understanding these days.. or the Nurses for that matter.. Glad you have a date for the Op! try hot soup be easier on the gut than toast on its own or scrammbled egg.

    Ask the Doc to give you a relaxant ie: Amytriptiline will calm you!

    Hi Tammi 

    I think it's  Indigestion perhaps you are suffering..have you tried Gaviscon syrup..its very good to stop reflux and stomach issues..Well if it were me I would refuse to move out of his room until he asks for you to be admitted stat! down toyou!

    You can get stronger ones from teh Doctor but this is only a quick fix..it needs to be sorted..The indigestion is a bit like Heart pains.. Pains in the left arm and fingertips ..like a strap around your chest is an MI..

    Glad you are feeling Bit better.. You should be eating small meals and often x5 a day. ..the morning will be when you have an empty tummy.. If you have lost 7lbs in weight thats good if you are a heavier weight. Make sure you are drinking plenty of water. dont want you dehydrating.

    Any Veggies Mashed Spud my favourite! Gravy granulated stuff or Oxo with cornflour.. Fish is Good Trout/ Sea Bass/ fried in Olive Oil..Chicken and Salad.. or veg.. small meals though Spaghetti in Pesto sauce ..how are you with Eggs? Souffle scrammbled..Milk puddings Macaroni Semolina..tinned stuff on hand try it? Yoghurt plain with Honey. Dont go to bed on an empty tummy.. try cereal at night before bed. Hot milky drink. Providng the Milk is not Full Fat it should be ok..

    You  must eat ..it when your stomach is empty I guess it causes the Pains.. Its to do with the Bile relaeased into the Gall Bladder comes through into the bile duct for release when you eat..Stick to Polyunsaturates Butter better if made from OliveOil Bertoli..( Fish which had Omega 3 Oils  good any fish SARDINES/ Flked Tuna..Baked Potatoes.. Crackers and bertoli & Marmite..
