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.

    Poor you. I certainly don't want that. How are you now without your gallbladder.

      Hi Anita03601, I am finally clear from pain, but it has taken an awfully long time. Looking back I really don't know how I came through all the procedures. But looking forward that is one more thing that shouldn't come back again, fingers crossed. Thanks for your support,

    I don't think I have this because my stools and urine don't look as bad as that but this has really sparked a lot of thought. I'm getting pains everywhere that make me think that I am either hemmoraging, getting a heart attack or worse. Thanks for this though. Are you doing ok now?

      Hi tamsyn59552, Yes I am finally pain free from my long ordeal. I certainly would not wish that on my worst enemy. You should go to see your GP as soon as possible, if your pain is that bad.

               Good luck sandrog
