i had my gall bladder removed at great expense 6 weeks ago as I wanted to be free of pain etc to enjoy the summer? Now here I am in the huge nhs hospital with a distended stomach and intermittent right side pain especially when I change position either night or day. It has got steadily worse in the last few weeks yet I had felt almost back to normal and certainly able to eat a normal healthy diet as Before. I've had X-rays and a catscan which shows fluid surrounding my remaining organs but no one seems very sure what to do. My Top man Professor who did the op is conveniently away on holiday but will be informed. They might attempt to drain off the fluid and give antibiotics but a further more complex op may be necessar. I wish now I'd kept my gall bladder, suffered the pain and persevered with the diet. Has anyone else had a similar experience. I am a 72 year old woman with no ther health problems and a fairly active enjoyable lifestyle.
