Hi everyone, I've had gallstones for 30 years , my gallbladder is/was full of gravel, I didn't have my gallbladder out but managed the pain by what I ate over the years.
I found that I could eventually eat anything in moderation without upsetting it but on occasions I did get pain , bearable enough not to be seen too.
Then last November I started getting the niggling pains again and they got worse, so much so that by New Years eve I was in agony with constant pain, so after visiting doctor and being sent for a scan it turns out I have two large stones 1x2cm and 1x2.5 cm along with gravely stones.
What I can't understand is why is my pain constant ? It doesn't go away and Tramadol only takes the edge off it. My first experience of pain all those years ago was tremendous pain lasting several hours then just a bruised pain afterwards till next attacks.
Anyone else had this ?
im booked to see a consultant next week about having the operation and don't know what op I will receive till I've talked to him , but I think I'm too overweight to have the laparoscopic one and may have to have the normal op.
Any help on this please ?
