Timing of pain question

Posted , 5 users are following.

How long does it take for pain to start after you typically eat? I was wondering how quickly others experience the pain.

    Hi. I've had pain for almost 18 months now. I have sludge and constant medium level pain. Only subsides when I eat. It used to start around 15 to 20 minutes after eating.

      HI Paul. like you, i have moderate pain with sludge and small gravel size stones diagnosed about 3 years ago. i will go a week or so with a flare up and then it may not bother me for months. There doesn't seem to be any particular sort of food that causes it either

    I have had the go ahead from surgeon for removal. If you don't have the stereotypical intense attack they don't take you seriously. My symptoms are numerous, metallic taste, peeling palms, dry soles of feet, mild pinching feeling where gallbladder is, dull deep ache under right shoulder blade. In the morning no pain but as day goes on it ramps up. Never really bad, just annoying. Hope you get the outcome you want.
