I got rushed into hospital over 2 years ago, With agonising pain and very jaundiced skin, my urine was almost black and my stools were pale grey.
After a battery of tests I was told I had gallstones, I was actually pleased as I had been having thoughts of something much worse. They sent me for a CT scan, and told me I only had 4 stones but the worst thing was the largest one was over 5 cms in diameter and was stuck in the bile duct where it joined the gall bladder, hence the name above. I ended up having 7 procedures in 3 different hospitals over an 18month period, before they finally got everything out. I just could not believe it was going to be that difficult to get rid of. I only hope none of you ever gets diagnosed with it.
