Before 2018, I was fine and dandy like sugar candy. On the 5th of Jan, I thought I was dying, so I called the ambulance. I didn't know what was happening, all I knew was there was pain in my back and chest area. I went to A&E and waited in "pain" for hours upon end until someone saw me. After hours of morphine and pills and so on I was finally seen by the doctors. I stayed in Hospital for two days, horrible place. I was free and they gave me pills (the wrong pills). Even though I'd been scanned it seems they'd misdiagnosed me. They thought my gallstones was a "kidney stone". I took the pills when I returned home.... but knew something just wasn't right. I started bleeding from my nose and found no relief. I then got the pain again and it wouldn't go away, so I made my way back to hospital. I was in hospital for a week and was released yesterday. They gave me three sets of pills which I have to take at 7AM, 8AM, 12PM and 10PM. If I miss taking them I get an attack. I had one last night... (they are antibiotics and are supposed to be helping me). I'm on a 6 week waiting list for gallbladder removal. I find it to be quite sucky, because I did some research and you have to endure countless pain that goes on for months, after the surgery. I changed my diet and have only been eating fruit and vegetables. But I can't eat sometimes.... the water helps. I found when you have an attack and just start drinking a lot of water you feel better. I invested in foods that were healthy, beetroot, grapes, blueberries and that is about it. I also brought three apple juices, cherry, orange and blueberry and something else. I later found out that it is not a good idea to drink fruit juice. Apparently it flushes your system. Some people think it helps them remove the stones, but it doesn't. It just helps you defecate.... (gives you diarrhea aka looses your bowls - which is good if you are constipated, as I originally was constipated and could not poop for days.) I did hours of research and many people are fooled.... And so my life now is all about taking pills, and having random attacks.... even though I have changed my diet and have been eating healthy since last week, it has made no difference. I also have terrible body odour, something I never had before. And so my life is now pills and pain and I miss being able to eat what I wanted to. I'm angry because the doctors at the hospital didn't even bother give me a food chart... so I just use common sense. But, yeah all in all my life is ruined and it is only going to get worse after the surgery. It just scares me.... because I know what will happen and it's like playing a waiting game, just to get the gallbladder itself out of my body. It has to go... some people claim you shouldn't remove it, they are wrong. It doesn't matter how long you keep up a healthy diet, in the end you will end up having to get rid of it. I guess... at least I'm losing a ton of weight... and becoming a....scarecrow-like corpse.
