I have had 2 attacks since being diagnosed with Gall stones about 2 weeks ago, when I was rushed to hospital with the pain. I have been told that I will be having the gall bladder removed through keyhole surgery. Im 37, and have only ever been in hospital to have my five children. The pain is far worse than any of those labours. I have been given a pain relief now, Diclofenac, but it doesnt touch it.
My main concern is the operation, I cant say how scared I am, i'm beside myself with worry. Having read the experiences of everyone on here I am even more scared. Is the post op as bad as the attacks I am having now? does everyone get constipated? Ive always prided myself on a high pain threashold, but these attacks are the worst, they last for hours and have me on my knees in tears. My husband and all my freinds tell me to have the operation, and continue on like its nothing. Its ruling my life at the moment, I worried about what im eating, worried about the operation, and spend most of my time scared im going to have another attack. I dont go far from home. With my last attack, a amubulance was called and I refused to go, because im so scared that they may operate on me.
I would love any advice at all.:headhurts:
