Glad to have found a forum like this - ive been suffering with pain from september 2017 diagnosed gallstones and subsequently had a few visits to A & E department - usual story - painkillers and sent home x 8 !! Admitted over the new year as I was jaundiced and peeing the colour or Iron Bru - CT and MRI Scan revealed a stone lodged in bile duct - two ERCP’s later the stone was dislodged - my operation was scheduled for 24th Jan 2018 but suddenly they decided to postpone it as my gallbladder had suffered plenty attacks ( hello A &E maybe you should have admitted me after visit no.2) so home i went at least pain free - ten days later the most viscous pain in my upper right abdomen the inability to talk or breathe and i’m ambulanced in to hospital - given pain killers and oxygen and treated for pancreatitis and acute choleycysitus given iv fluids and antibiotics and a drain into my gallbladder draining out infection. i remain in hospital two and a half weeks - operation date came and went i am informed my gallbladder has perforated and shrunk from all the attacks - i was sent home two days ago with a bag of meds - i need an mri scan in four weeks to see if my gallbladder is operable as i’m now told because it has shrunk it could now attach itself to other organs - marvellous ! A routine operation that stinks of medical negligence - the upset and anger and frustration doesn’t come close - anyone else suffered shrunken gallbladder ? I’m hoping that my gallbladder can be removed within a few weeks obviously it all depends on what the mri scan shows
