I’m 21 years old, I have been having a crushing heavy pain under my ribs and around my back. One night it woke me up from my sleep and I couldn’t breathe, I felt like I was dying, I can’t eveb describe the pain I was in. My partner rang me an ambulance and after having an ultrasound done I was diagnosed with gallstones. I am having my gallbladder removed in a few weeks but until then I am supposed to ride out the gallbladder attacks. And for anyone who suffers with them, know that that’s easier said than done.
I am currently writing this at 4:00am in the morning after just coming round from a gallbladder attack that woke me up at 2:00am.
I am wanting advice from people who have the same problem. What helps reduce the chance of having one? What foods are best to eat? What painkillers worked for you? I just need help, I can’t cope with it any longer😢
