      Yes I have been back and forward to hospital the first scan after I had the pain showed no stone but cysts and fatty liver I was then referred to hepatology who sent me for another scan that showed up lots of tiny stones in my gallbladder. I thought it was gallbladder causing problem I had put myself on a low fat diet and now 3 months later the discomfort I had been feeling has really settled.The Liver specialist has recently referred me back to GP to deal with it so I am waiting to see what they want to do next.I had not seen many people on this site say anything about lots of tiny stones.Thankyou for your reply.

      Oh dear poor you. I have only had one initial bout of bad pain but I had a constant discomfort over gallbladder area which after about 3 months is now settling hope you are recovering well its such a worry when things start to go wrong with the gallbladder lots of people seem to have very bad experiences after removal.if I had not been sent for a second scan I would not have known that I had gallstones as I was told I had not so I was worrying myself sick that I had something else wrong with me even though I was sure it was my gallbladder.Thanks for your reply.

    Hi Townko:. I had my gallbladder out last Feb of 2017. I had lots of small gallstones. I had lots of pain and gas and bloating. But the fever I didn't have. But the pain and gasses are normal. When it acted up I had a glass of water and that usually helped subside the pain. Or try an antacid line tums or rolaids if you can. Take care

      My gallbladder discomfort seems to have settled at the moment I have been eating smaller meals mainly low fat no eggs or cheese in case it sets it off again.Hope you recovered well from your op I have still to see what will happen next but I am pretty sure I will be advised to have it removed which is a bit daunting thanks for your reply.

    Before my gallstones caused me to have really severe painful attacks I would suffer a lot of discomfort which would last a good few hours.  One night I felt really sick and it last throughout the night.  By early morning, about 6.30 a.m. I was sick; however, none of the previous evening's dinner had been digested, but after I was sick I did feel much better.  I went to the doctor that morning.  She thought it could be gallstones and sent me for a scan.  The scan showed I had lots of tiny gallstones.  I also had a MRI.  Just before my operation the gallstone attacks were becoming unbearable.  It was a relief to have it removed.

    thank you Townko ..... my advice is to be very mindful of what you eat .... I think I had gallstones for years and the attacks I experienced weren't bad enough for me to go to the doctors ..... it was when they became unbearable I had to do something about it.   Best wishes to you.
