I am 21 years old, and had my gallbladder removed 2 months ago due to gallstones. 4 days ago I began experiencing pain a little bit under the right side of my ribs. It comes and goes in waves, and at first I ignored it. Yesterday the nausea and diarrhea began, and I took myself to the ER because the pain became too much. They did blood tests, and urine tests, but said they see no reason to do a CT scan. I was given IV fluids since my heart rate was 123 and I had a fever of 102. My heart rate was 70 and normal temperature when they took my vitals right before I was discharged. The ER doctor said everything came back normal, and nothing was wrong with any organs. Today the pain is worse, and I have a really bad headache along with it that will not go away even with Ibuprofen. The pain happens more frequently, and feels like I am being stabbed. It does sometimes spread to my left side, and when I press on my abdomen a little towards the middle and a bit under my ribs, I can feel an exact spot that hurts really bad. My 80 pound dog jumps on me quite often and I began to think maybe internal bleeding was a possibility from the trauma of her jumping on me, but that might be a stretch. No appendicitis, no pancreatitis, and no gallstones since I had my gallbladder removed. I am at a loss, and still am in a lot of pain. I think maybe I should have spoken up to get a CT scan, I have no clue. If anyone has any ideas of what I should do, please let me know.
