Was taken into hospital as an emergency last week, terrible pains on hrs of my body. On my discharge notes it read that my liver function tests were deranged, I had raised white blood count, and my pancreas has raised maylese ???
After lying in casualty for 12 hours all alone, and thinking I was on my way out, finally I was taken to a ward.
i was given AB by IV, a yellow drip? Pain killers, and 3 days later a ultrasound scan, which showed gallstones.
they did not remove my gallbladder, said they would see me in 6 weeks to review the situation. I was told by the ultrasound lady that I had a fatty liver, but when the surgeon came to discuss my scan he never mentioned this.
when I raised the topic he said, well you are over weight, and you drink to much, and gave me no advice whatsoever.
i am now arranging to have my gallbladder removed, as I was told if this flares up again it could be very serious.
How do I know it's the gallstones and not my liver that caused the pain, could I be having my gallbladder removed for no reason. I swear to god I will never touch alcohol again. I just feel so bad when I read about the people who have fatty liver, and other dreadful conditions of the liver, who gave never touched a drink, or don't really drink, it's just not fair they have not overindulgence.
Was it all my gallbladder causes the pain, and is this why my blood tests were raised? I am totally at a loss, I have heard about people who have never been right after gallbladder removal, but then again I hear of lots that feel better.
if you have an Alcoholic fatty liver can removing the gallbladder make it worse?. Any Dvice would be so grateful x
