Well since September last year I’ve been symptom free but from the 27th December the symptoms are back. 

URQ abdo pains, aching all in my upper

back on right shoulder, pain relief isn’t helping and I fear I’m back to where I was last March when I was admitted to hospital with an inflamed and infected gallbladder. 

I’ve been taking 1 co-codamol every 4 hours and using the hot water bottle but it’s starting to interfere with my everyday life again. I’d hoped it wouldn’t get this to point but sadly I think I’m there - again. 

I was on the waiting list but when I went for my Pre-Op they discovered I’d hot high BP so I’ve been on medication since Sept

to keep that under control. I’m still

Waiting to hear back from the GP or hospital now to see when I go

Back for another pre-op. 

Just feeling so low now. 😞

    What strength could co codamol are you taking ?

    If it's the 8/500 you can take 2 at a time but only 8 in 24 hours .

    Your doctor can give you a stronger dose if it isn't helping .

    Hi I know exactly what you mean, I have been diagnosed with a large hiatus hernia which causes similar symptoms when the gallbladder was there. It has been there for a long time !! When you go back mention if it has anything to do with a hiatus hernia. I am now waiting to see a consultant. What a drag. Good luck 😉
