Hi I have had gall stone pain for a while but only realised it was gallstones after being rushed into hospital with an infection 6 days on an iv and I came out. Everything settled down only had one attack however now I am getting the pain every day a dull ache lasting all day. I am on morphine and tramadol. Had my bloods checked no infection , is this normal any advice much appreciated. I'm on a very very low fat diet and waiting on a date for it to be removed. X

    The dull pain is probably just ur gallbladder left feeling tender from the infection, nothing to worry about. When i was waiting for a date for my removal i phoned the 111 everytime i had an attack, went to a&e a few times, got the surgeons receptionist number & just hassled any1 i could to get the removal date closer & it worked!! smile if u r in alot of pain, often its no way 2 live ur life so good luck & u will feel normal again after surgery!

    I was like that, I had two weeks in hospital with an infection, turned a lovely shade of yellow. Before having the gallbladder out I was waiting to have the stuck stone removed, unfortunately our health authority was only doing emergency procedures, so after four months waiting I had another attack, as soon as my temperature went up my surgeon decided I needed everything out then and there, didn't have room on his operating list, so they worked through their lunch.

    Gave me a whole new meaning to being invited for lunch!!

      Oh God sounds awful I was just but concerned as it's constant but no infection it's odd plus I don't get paid for not being at work so losing money etc I don't like the idea of an op but I've never wanted something so bad in my life!!! Xx

    Do not mess with this, get it out!!!!! I went through the same thing in May  of this year and I almost died of pancreatitis twice!! It landed me in the hospital for one month. Thye had to clean out common duct of stones and then take my gallbladder out. IV anitbiotics for fours weeks. Dilaudid 2MG every three hours for ten days straight. I'm telling you you can not take care of this pain meds, it will KILL YOU! Tell the docs to take it out!! Once out, you can eat just about everything. I went from 160 pounds down to 139 punds in hospital and here we are in August and I'm 175 pounds and 100% better. No pain, no where.

      I hope the surgeon agrees and removes it from you quickly. One thing I leanred from the net is not to believe that gallstones can be flushed from your body, this is simply nonsense. Even dietary changes can't stop stones from forming or leaving the gallbladder and falling into common bile duct. Wish you best, stay i  touch :-) Gregory
