I really am about at my wits end. I have my gallbladder op booked for the 25th August but it seems like a million miles away. I had one large gallstone apparently. In the last couple of months I have had 3 flair ups and have been put on antibiotics. My GP has confimed that these have not been infections but just inflammation. When I mentioned it to the hospital whilst trying deseprately to get a cancellation appointment they said I have to wait 6 weeks for the inflammation to die down so I regretted even mentioing it to them ! The trouble is this is flarring all the time. I am only eating porridge and vegetables thats it. Im fat free!! If I had my way I wouldnt eat at all. I finish my antibiotics today but it doesnt feel any better. I feel so unwell. I feel sick the majarotiy of the time now. I am on buscopan 8 a day which does take the edge off things.Im also on omeprazole. I have never got the really severe pain like typical GB. I do get stabbing pains through my shoulder blade and a lot of discomfort in my right side and a nagging ache. If I sit in the car I feel like there is something in there being squeezed and I get extreme discomfort to the point where I feel so sick. It takes ages to settle back down. MY feet are so dry and cracked and itchy with great splits in them. I have suffered from this for years too could this be a symptom of a bad GB ? Looking on the internet it appears to be so. I have had GB problems over many years without realising what it was. My first attack was 35 years ago!
MY Gp told me the other day if I get a full on infection / flair up they wont operate for at least 6 weeks. She has been very supportive but I am so scared that if i mention to the hospital how bad i feel they will delay things . I have a really high pain threshhold normally and cope with a lot with other health issues but this is the worse thing I have ever had. So i am struggling on but I really dont know how I am going to get through the next two weeks I would be so glad to hear from anyone else who has had any of the same issues.
