    All I can say is push push push your gp to refer you back to a gastro team and get some tests done. Keep pestering and don't stop until you get a result!!

    Very best of luck!!!!!

      Hi thank you for the message the doctor is sending me to the hospital for a scan and tests after he examined my stomach on Wednesday.

      I will make sure this is sorted, keep taking the pain medication to keep it under control.

      Thank you so much for the message,

      kind regards JO

    Sorry to hear you're suffering after surgery. I had exactly the same so much so i called for an ambulance. The doctor in A&E said it was quite common for a stone to get left behind. Some people say you can eat what you like after the op but i certainly can't. I can't eat meat any more only chicken and fish. When i went for the scan there was no sign of any stone so it must have passed through on it's own. Hope this helps but ask for a scan just to make sure.

      Thank you so much for coming back to me, i'm the same can only eat chicken and fish, too. The doctor is referring me to have a ultrasound done asap and blood tests. I am taking Zapain for the pain, hoping the stone will go like yours fingers crossed.

      Have to be honest i was so surprised when this pain started up, its hitting my shoulders and neck and arms to the writs, getting really bad head aches with it and feeling faint.

      all good fun lol! glad yours is gone keep you posted. thank you again kind regards JO X
