Im so glad Im not alone in experiencing this pain in my upper right quadrant. I started having "tummy aches" everyday but it wasnt severe until one night i was in so much pain i couldnt sleep. Next morning i took some pepto and tylenol that didnt help at all! I also noticed a couple of days before that i would belch frequently and it smelled horrible! A few days later, after dealing with severe pain that didnt go away, i got scared and walked to the hospital. I dont even remember this. I had to have emergency surgery to remove my gallbladder However i had to have the of fashioned procedure done because of abscesses on my gallbladder along with stones, sludge, and inflammation, even gangrene. It took me months to heal from the 8inch incision across my abdomen. After surgery i had a pain in my upper right abdomen. It started not too painful but gradually got worse and worse. Now the pain is excruciating, my abdomen is bulging, and Im out of work cause Im in so much pain. No answers yet as to why in experiencing all this pain. My first ct scan showed a pocket of fluid where my gallbladder was. Ive been to the ER several times since. They wont even touch me! They claim ct scan is alot of radiation and they dont want to give me another one cause the radiation can cause cancer later in life, to just call my surgeon. I do call his office but they dont take my insurance so they wont give me an appointment, even when i cried and begged.
