I just had what seems to be my first gallbladder attack this week. I m having an ultrasound Fri to confirm but the doc seems pretty sure based on the symptoms. I'm having 2 kinds of pain one is swelling in the gallbladder area itself the other is a hard lump, I'm guessing the offending stone. The lump seems to have made it down into my stomach area the intestines? I actually think I might have passed 2 smaller stones a few days ago that wern t as bad merely a few hours of misery this last one however seemed to do some damage on the way through in the form of painfully swelling. Laying on my left side helps, as does alive I m not suppose to take ibprophian due to conflicts with other meds. So to the questions 1) how long can I expect the swelling to last post stone? 2) is it common to pass them in groups? I have a supision I me ght have caused this with use of my new tens unit for back pain in that general area. Is it possible the electric current broke a stone into pieces that then tried to pass?
