    How awful 

    I remember it well 😩

    just keep an eye on the whites of your eyes and your skin ..if you start to yellow it’s jaundice caused by stones stuck in bile duct ...if your poo Goes white pale u need to go to a and e ..

    but it sounds like your just enduring the colic attacks that you get when you have stones..

    wont be long now 

    such a relief once mine was removed I cried with joy afterwards ..👍

      Well I am now coming up 4 years since removal ..

      for me my quality of life improved immediately .. I had developed food phobias due to fear of the agonising attacks ..after removal I no longer felt nauseous .. and my nerves settled ..

      i have become gluten intolerant since removal and I suffer from constipation but for me that is nothing compared with what I was suffering ..

      i did enjoy myself with food after removal and now am on a strict low fat diet  to help my liver ( little warning don’t go mad with fat but so hard when you can suddenly eat what you like ) some people get left with diahreah it depends on how much bile your liver drips into your tummy after removal .. removal when you haven’t got infected or jaundiced seems to have less complications compared to leaving your gallbladder in until it has to come out in an emergency op leaving you with more complications ..

    A colic attack is when you can’t stop being sick you keep being sick for hours you just keep vomiting bile ..your ribs feel like they are broken with the pain your intestines feel like they are pushing up on your ribs ..it’s absolutely excruciating.. 

    i had these attacks roughly once a year for a good 10years before I was diagnosed with a gallbladder packed with stones ..I had thought each time I had food poisoning but could never understand how after 7or 8hours Of agony I would suddenly recover..all symptoms disappear..

    when diagnosed I realised these colic sick attacks were stones getting stuck in my bile duct and my body trying to pass them or dislodge them ..the pain stops suddenly because they dislodge ..

    the general gnawing aching pain you get under your right rib and in your back is inflammation from the stones rubbing together and making the lining of the gallbladder sore .. it settles with extremely low fat diet ..

    the colic attacks can also be avoided by low low fat no red meat no caffeine nothing that causes your gallbladder to contract ..and squeeze ..so no food that requires extra bile to be squeezed out from your gallbladder ..

    hope that helps
