I have just come out of hospital after my second ever gallstone attack (first about 2 yrs ago). I am now on the 6th day of pain and nausea/vomiting and feeling very down. The hospital discharged me yesterday as I was keeping fluids and some food down - the US showed 2 stones in the neck of the gb and multiple other small stones. I am on a lot of painkillers, anti-sickness and huge anti-biotics, which they say will reduce the inflammation soon, and I am going back in 2 weeks for an appointment to set a date for gallbladder removal. I have a few questions:
1) Is it normal for an attack to last this long?
2) What can I actually eat? Last night I woke up in agony and threw up an undigested apple, which helped the pain, but I'm scared to eat anything and can't keep my meds down on an empty stomach.
3) How likely is it that I'll still have symptoms after removal?
4) Is there anything I can do to make myself feel better right now?
Any advice greatly appreciated!
