A month ago, when travelling to work early in the morning I ran into traffic and was stuck in the car for 3 hours. Whilst in the car I did have some sensation where I felt I need to go to the toilet. ( number 2) when I arrived in work I did find myself rubbing my back on my left side . Later that day I was sitting on a chair, lesson planning with another teacher. As I went to stand up the teacher noticed I was in severe pain and called out first aider. The next morning when I woke up I was in pain. My left leg was very weak and my back was hurting. It was tender. I managed to see my GP. He asked me to get into the bed to examine me. I couldn't I was in too much pain.my left leg was painfull and was very weak. Doctor sent me to hospital fir a back X-ray and prescribed co codemol. By the Sunday morning from 4am I was up and down in the toilet. I was constipated. After going in there a third time I was feeling pains under my breasts and I was sweating the pain also ran around my back. I called NHS line. They thought I was having a heart attack! A paramedic arrived first. She see I was holding myself. " did they tell you, you may be having a heart attack?" Yes I said
"I bet you its your gallbladder, I had mine removed a few weeks back" she said. Next the ambulance crew arrived and she told them it's her gallbladder. They took me A&E and passed onto them it's her gallbladder.they gave me morphine and sent me to see a doctor who pushed on my gallbladder "does that hurt?" ... Of course it hurt but I suppose I was hurting all over but I just went with the flow as they were the doctors . They knew what they were doing. I was asked to come back on the Tuesday for an ultra scan.
The lady who was investigating my liver, kidneys and gall bladder was hurting me. I was crying. My stomach was so tender. I even said to her is this normal to feel pain ? She didn't say nothing.
I then had to see the doctor. He was quiet surprised to see me he said. You look so healthy . You have 2 gall stones he said then I the next breath how I have too have my gall bladder removed. I was put on antibiotics for the gallbladder, co codemol for pain for my back as I still had it and a drug to line my stomach. I had a chemist in my cabinet now. This is carried on for 3 weeks. I was back and forth to the doctors. I told him I'm constipated and he said let me give you some drink it will help you go and you must take pain killers for your back.
Sunday night just gone. I never slepted a wink. I was in pain. My intestines felt they were twisted and my stomach was huge. I went to A&E . I spoke to tge doctor . I told him I don't think my gallbladder has anything to do with why I'm in pain. I told him everything . I even had it all on record on hard copy. He asked if I had had a camera put in me bottom and mouth? I said no! Have you had your bottom checked? I said no he was taken back. He perceived me bascopan. Oh my God they worked. Even my back ache went.
I know that they found 2 gallstones and they were 3mm each. Small enough to to get trapped in the bile duct.apparently we all have gallstones. But as soon as they play up, then they whipped them out. If it wasn't for my pain again and seeing the GP I may have had my gall bladder removed( crazy)
I'm now not taking anything no drugs. This is day 2
