I can't believe what is happening to my daughter in law. I got my Gallbladder removed by keyhole surgery 6 weeks ago,and have been posting on here and getting helpful advice for a few months.On Friday night my 37 year old daughter in law was rushed in to hospital with terrible pains in her upper abdomen and back,just like the pain of gallstones. We all thought No she can't have them at her age. However,she had mentioned to me, when I was telling her about my symptoms of pain during the night etc.,that she has bouts of that too sometimes.She went to her GP last week and was prescribed Omeprazole,and told that these should help but if it didnt clear up they would arrange an endoscopy.Now she is in hospital and is having an ultrasound this afternoon as they think a stone is lodged in her bile duct.She has been having morphine since friday and hasnt kept a thing down,and apparantly they told her today that they had given her medication to dissolve the stone but it hadnt worked.They are not even sure that that is what is wrong,but all the signs point to it being that.She has had a far worse experience then I had,and that was bad enough Only good thing,if you can call it that, is that if they find stones they will remove her gallbladder,and she wont have to wait months for an operation.
I will let you all know how she gets on
