Hi, I've been diagnosed with 'multiple tiny gallstones' and told I need to get my gallbladder removed. I'm really concerned because my symptoms are not the 'typical' ones that most people I read about seem to experience, ie. most people seem to be ok, then next minute get terrible attacks of pain (usually after eating 'fatty food') and then after a certain amount of time the attack subsides and they're ok again. I've not really had any problems with nausea and suchlike but i do have constant discomfort right under my right breast (it often hurts to wear a bra). At various times throughout the day this discomfort changes to a really intense pain in just this small area (often feels like there is something stuck right beneath my rib). It also sometimes feels like a really deep bruise type feeling. I'd just really like to know whether anyone else has this same problem as I'm seriously worried that it's something else other than gallstones. Many thanks
