A scan has just diagnosed gallstones following my first attack a few weeks back, with pain under ribs and nausea keeping me awake for three days. Laying on my right side made it worse. Also had sharp pain like someone kicking me when I turned over in bed which really made me heave. I thought at first that it was a bad attack of trapped wind but this was different and worse.
Had got better and my appetite had returned but it’s started up again, this time mostly in back. As the discomfort had gone away, I laid on my right side again last night, which seems to have been a mistake, but I also ate something with chilli in yesterday so goodness knows!
On both occasions it’s been linked with emptying my bowels every so often during the day and a bloated feeling, but this doesn’t relieve the pain, neither do the Co-codamol painkillers. I also can’t wear anything tight round my waist.
Am due to see doctor regarding the scan result next Monday but, having looked on the various forums, there doesn’t seem to be an easy solution so am feeling a bit depressed at the moment as I thought gallbladder removal would fix everything.
