for the last 7 years i have suffered on and off with what i thought was indigestion pains, then when i fell pregnant again last june the pains started getting worse in the side of my back and under my ribs on the front on the right hand side.. thinking it was just becuase i was pregnant i ignored it, then 2 days after i got married in october i went for my 20 week scan and found out our baby had died 2 weeks before, after my daughters birth the pains started getting worse and were every day, so in january i had enough and went to the dr thinking i was just exagerating indegestion or had a pulled muscle, he mentioned i might have something wrong with my gallbladder, so sent me for a scan, i had the scan o february 17th and discovered i have multiple gallstones, it doesnt matter what i eat or what time of day it is i get the most excruciating pain in my back side and under my ribs, and sometimes can be hard to breath for a short time then the breathing gets better but the pain stays for anything from 3 hours to 12 hours. my dr has said i have to have an operation but cant tell me whether they will just remove the stones or the gallbaldder as well, im only 29! and im scared stiff of having an operation, i've had 2 D&C's after 2 miscarriages and hate being put to sleep for the 15 minutes that they last for! i know something needs to be done as the pain i am in is terrible, i cant even eat lettuce and cucumber without having pain! they've also said i may have to wait up to 8 months before having the operation!!!! another 8 months of this pain! WOW!!!!! anyone got any tips on what i can eat without having agonising pain after eating it? i've tried many things but get pain no matter what it is... or anyone know of a good pain killer? i'm taking paracetamol and buprofen but they only take the edge off its still very painful even with them.... thanks for any advice... and i hope we can become friends! i'd love to chat with some people who are going through the same or been through the same i feel so alone at the moment lol
