I wonder if I could get some advice from the experts here.
I have been suffering with severe chest and back pain for some time now.
After numerous tests gallstones were discovered and my gallbladder was removed. I was told that this operation would stop all my pain and I would get back to normal. Unfortunately 6 weeks after my surgery I am still suffering the same pain as before.
I'm now wondering whether it was something like "costo" all along.
I've been back to the consultant that removed my GB and all the necessary tests and scans have been carried out and everything is normal? The consultant had no answers for my continuing pain.
My heart is normal, pancreas, liver etc all normal and I was given a clean bill of health and sent home with cocodomol and omeprazole in case it was an acid problem.
I went to see a chiropractor this morning and she could feel muscle contraction around the rib and back area. The pain is of a crushing/ muscle contracting nature and it is worsened when I put my back up against a chair or lay down. I am getting through each night and day by standing up and sitting on a chair with no back and am getting desperate for help. The pain is constant and feels like I have broken my ribs. chest xray ruled this out of course.
I was just wondering whether this sounds like costo to you guys and also if anyone else experiences the same pain I have described?
I would be grateful for any feedback or tips to help relieve it enough to sit/lay down again. Anything at all to help really.
Thanks so much for reading
