Just need to vent. I started having gallbladder attacks in november last year about a month after having my baby. It took 5 weeks to get the ultrasound and another 6 to speak to the surgeon and surgery isnt until april 27th. In the meantime i have had 24 attacks. 18 of which have been major (lasting 3 or more hours with intense pain). I have been to the ER 4 times. The last time was for an attack lasting 24 hours which was due to acute pancreatitis. They originally were going to do my removal then and there but the surgeon on call didn't feel like it. I have been eating almost vegetarian for the past month with added chicken breast, eggs and non breaded fishes which has made most attacks minor and bearable but here i am again. Sitting awake at 3 in the morning with a major attack complete with vomiting, chills and intense pain even on my meds. Just feel so frustrated with the system right now and want this stupid thing out. Its hard enougn getting sleep with a 4 1/2 month old baby without the added attacks to worry about
