Should I go to doctor about pain or wait for surgery appointment (is this a gallblader attack)

Posted , 3 users are following.

I don't know if it's a gallbladder attack but I've been having pain everywhere. It's out my back, in the middle of my stomach and in my chest (which scares me).

I have no interest in food but forcing myself to eat and drink. Sorry to sound gross but my poo is clay covered and big which is a big change from my normal bowel movements i.e. small, round and constipated.

I've been like this since consultation and don't know if the doctor did something wrong when he pressed on my stomach like released a stone and know it's gotten stuck or something. My skin is okay color, I'm normally pale and on top of that slightly anemic so I'm basically ghost color lol.

Should I go see my own g.p. or wait for surgery?

    I was writing to you and it dissapeared. I would go to the ER now after what you

    have said is happening. The chest pain is nothing to play with. Better to be safe than sorry later. My doctor said if He did not take it out when he did and later I would be in a very lot of pain. Please take care and let us know how you make out. Terry

    If you're in pain, go to the ER. Don't wait.

      Hi Lynda,

      I do not know why I get that taste in the back of my throat like throw up. I had a day from hell. In the am I am calling all my doctors. It is so hard to get around as I can drive except that I tripped over the foot stool and went down for the count. I was sick all day. I went to the pet store and was going to go in the food store but could not. my stomache is not right. I do not know what to eat or when. I am so depressed. I can not do this. I had my knee replaced in April and then the GB and then the next week not even I had my other knee done but i was lucky i did not need the whole knee done. and now that clutshy terry feel on her knee again I am in so much pain. I hate it. will it ever get better. I can hardly walk. So Lynda, How was your day today? I hope you had a good one.

      Hi, Terry,

      You have dealt with a lot of traumatic things in a short period of time!  No wonder your body is having a hard time adjusting.  

      I think that the taste in the back of your throat might be from excess bile backing up into your stomach.  Are you on any acid reducing meds?
