when I had my gallbladder out it was so full of stones and slush that it flooded into my stomach and I needed a stomach wash.
the surgeon was happy and said all had gone well. However I still was getting mild pain in that area some months later. I had another scan which identified a stone in my gallbladder but I knew I didn't have a gallbladder.
i git appointment to see original surgeon again. He explained that because all the stones were gushing out that he had removed gallbladder but tied off a small piece near to duct, he said that this small flap had a small old stone in it and that I would be fine.
i have been fine for two years now and have had no pain and can basically eat anything.
However, I was out for a meal recently and did over indulged on cream, which generally I avoid but miss. Subsequently I have been getting dull pain in my gallbladder region, under right ribs at front and back.
although I have been eating a good diet now, the pain isn't going and I'm not sure whether I should wait and see or get in touch with doctor again as I certainly don't want to suffer the full blown agony that I previously had with gallstones as I know waiting lists are very long.
any suggestions would be appreciated.
