I have had gallstones for over a year and the attacks have been more and more frequent (and more excruciating) every time. I had one one last Sunday and when the pain when away I still felt extreme nausea and tenderness in my abdomen. I could lie down at all so the next morning I went to a and e and they admitted me thinking I had a blockage in the common bile duct but after various test they found nothing but elevated liver enzymes so they think the stone popped back down into the gallbladder. They discharged me two days later and told me they would do the surgery in six weeksand by then the inflammation will go down but it's been a few days and the inflammation and slight tenderness ( just enough to be uncomfortable and annoying) is still there. I have health anxiety Aka hypochondria lol so you can imagine the places my mind is going! If anyone has had gallbladder problems likes stones etc, can the inflammation last more than a few days? I had it before but that was only for a day after the attack. I keep thinking the worst.
Thank you so much for reading to this point I did t mean for it to be so long!
(Also they didn't give me any anti biotics so I don't think it's an infection)
