Hello guys, I decided to come here to share my experience in hopes that I am not the only one alone in this situation at this very moment.
I was diagnosed with gallstones 7 months ago, it all started in January, I legit believed I was dying when I called ER for the first time ever on my life.
I went through many exams and they couldn't find anything wrong with me until I ended up in hospital and did a CT Scan.
Fast forwarding I have met the surgeon in April and was told that I would be put in the urgent list since my attacks are happening way to often.
Overall I kept going with my life, putting up with gallbladder attacks two or three times a month which is manageable after a while since I was prescribed ibuprofen and nospa once an attack would submerge.
I got myself an amazing job and this past month things have just gotten way worse, I am constantly going to work feeling very sick (my stomach is always very upset) and I have managed to get 5 attacks in a span of a month, I'm very scared I had to take 2 weeks of work because I cant function as a human being lately, but ever since last week the over the counter meds won't do anything to me, I have been in pain for over 3 days now accompanied with gallbladder attacks, I called the ambulance yesterday where they pumped me with very strong meds but the steady pain was still there (just it felt very little), fast forwarding until this morning I am laying in bed putting up with that steady pain in my gallblader which has become stronger again, yet it does not cause any nausea or vomiting so far, I haven't eaten anything and I'm afraid to even do so, I have been monitoring myself in case a stone could be stuck in the bile duct but no symptoms show up.
(I managed to finally go to the toilet but my stool is very very hard) I don't know what to do anymore I am meeting another surgeon on Wednesday since I have been waiting so long in this X hospital and I can't co-op with this awful sharp steady pain, I apologize for the long text but I'm so afraid I don't know what to do anymore.
Paramedics told me that if I call again they would be taking me but most likely I will just go back home after some time since they don't know what to do to me yet
Thank you for reading this
