About 5 weeks ago had a really frightening experience - was fine when went to bed woke with up with a stabbing pain in my chest, was sweating, suffered with palpitations - husband thought I was having heart attack! This went on for about an hour then I vomited and after about another hour felt better. When woke in morning felt find and had normal breakfast butter on toast, within an hour was in pain again and felt sick, did not eat anything else all day and again felt better. Next day skipped breakfast and had cream of tomato soup for dinner, again within an hour felt sick and pain returned, thought this is not right and managed to get an emergency appointment at doctors. Doctor examined me, I had a pulse of 140 and my blood pressure was sky high was also running a temperature - doctor said he thought the pain was coming from my gallbladder and prescribed antibiotics and a pain killer and arranged for blood tests and an ultrasound. Bloods came back all over the place, amalyse levels of 240 and when had ultrasound nurse said that there were definitely gallstones. Trouble is five weeks on I now feel fine bloods are back to normal but I am existing on a fat free diet! I now have an appointment come through for next week to see the surgeon with the view to removing my gallbladder.
Cannot help thinking should I have it done or should I wait and see what happens - would welcome comments from anybody if they have had same dillemma :shock:
