Ive been treated for hiatus hernia and it was my gallbladder the whole time!

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi there guys... i have just come back from my endoscopy and my hernia has gone! what they didnt say last year it had gone then too... So ive been on ranitadine 300mg X2 and omeprozole X2 every day, so does this mean i dont need to take them for my gallbladder.? I have been telling the doctors for years that no matter what i take i still get pain and sometimes lots of it. I feel let down by the hospital but hopefully they will listen to me more now about my symptoms and remove my gallbladder. I will just state my symptoms and if anyone could tell me if this is all gall bladder issues i would be grateful. xx

    Hi haven't you had a scan to see if you do have stones? If you haven't then ask for one love I don't think they can tell with an endoscopy but I would really tell them you need a scan and fast xxxx

      hiya sandy , i already had a ct scan when i was rushed in in agony nearly 6 weeks ago and they found multiple stones but they said it was incidental? which has to be false.. so my question is i believe ive had my stones for nearly 2 years but been fobbed off with the hernia. I now have proof my hernia is no longer there so im praying they will do something sooner xx hope that all made sense xx
