So I had my gallbladder removed in March this year due to stones. I've been suffering with reflux every since which at times has been really quite terrible.
But in the last two weeks I've been admitted to hospital twice, it all started with a pain in my upper stomach around 1;30 in the morning, bad enough to keep me awake, but a manageable pain. That was until 6am when the pain became totally unbearable causing me to cry out in pain, it then just went away and returned to the previous pain level for about an hour, then returned full on again for around 30 mins. At this point my other half rushed me to A&E.
I then spent the day in SAU having XRAYS, CT Scan etc, and was given lots and lots of pain relief. They then said I needed a MCRP scan which would be booked and have to come back for the results, but in the meantime, to not eat drink clear fluids, which I have been doing.
Three days later, the pain returned and this time it wouldn't go at all, I had taken Tramadol and 10 ms of liquid morphine, so he called 999 this time as it was horrific pain.
I then spend the weekend admitted to the hospital, but they couldn't bring my scan any closer so ended up being discharged with further pain relief to wait, still not able tot eat and now lost 27 lbs in two weeks. I have ahd another 4 periods of unbearable pain but I am taking painkillers every two hours as advised by the hospital to keep it at bay, a mixture of codeine, morphine, Tramadol, paracetamol and ibuprofen, buscopan and 40mg PPI each day.
I have now had my scan but have to wait until the 16th July for my results. Not once has anyone mentioned what it could be? The ultrasound and CT scans showed what the doctors called a "collection" where my gallbladder was, it must of been obvious at at the ultrasound she asked if I was sure i'd had my gallbladder removed?
My question is, has anyone has anything silmilar or could offer any advice of what could be wrong with me? I can stand the pain and the not eating and taking pills is very bad now x
