    Hello , sorry you are hurting. I understand how you feel. What I did to calm down and shorten attacks and pain . Is Apple cider vinegar. A teaspoon of acv into a small glass with warm water and a squeeze of lemon. I just drank it straight though. For I was having attacks all day!. It saved me until my removal. Hope it helps. Good Luck.

    Blimey you're still waiting!

    Sorry to be negative, but I dare say with all this Covid 19 I think there may be more delays.

    Yes mention that your painkillers aren't working which I presume are probably Co-codamol which are horrid things for your general health anyway.

    Good luck 👍

      Jesus! So even if it happens in a couple of months, that's nine months!

      That's absolutely appalling!

      The NHS "Backbone of Britain" yeah right!

      Fernando has suggested apple cider vinegar, try it, it's supposed to really help Gemma👍

    I feel your pain Gemma. Those attacks are absolutely horrendous. Unfortunately they only get progressively worse. I had my gallbladder removed in January and can honestly say it will be the best thing you ever do! I actually waited 4 1/2yrs for my surgery. Hopefully you wont have to wait much longer, however with the whole covid-19 scenario it may put a halt on things unfortunately! Try the Apple Cider Vinegar option...I didn't feel it helped but know of others that it helped greatly xx
