      My heart goes out to you, I had my gallbladder out last June too after a very long wait, since then I still have a lot of pain, trouble eat any fat etc. Did they give you any clue to to why your liver was enlarged, was your pancreas affected? I am still waiting to see a gastro specialist, NHS so slow!! I think I had pancreatitis after my surgery but was not ill enough to be admitted to Hospital, as soon as I went back on the veg, no fat and water only diet I felt better🤔🤔

      do keep posting as to how things go. x

      Thank you joanna, it's not a nice thing to go through i have a 4 year old son and was a struggle somedays i just couldn't move with the pain, doctors just kept feeding me pain killers which was tough as i couldn't eat lost over 3 stone telling me I'm fine as the wall wasn't swollen!! when gallbladder was removed it was full of multiple size gallstones. Yes that's who I'm waiting to see now been over 3 months and still no appointment. xx

      Hi Linzi, hello everyone. Linzi where do you feel the pain? and was it like an everyday pain? comes and goes? what are all you symptoms if you don't mind asking. I experience severe pain on upper middle abdomen, sometimes i sweat with pain. I take Mylanta everytime i had an attack it will resolve after several minutes. I too get diarrhea, pain that radiates to back, sometimes nausea.
