I finally got a diagnosis today for what has been causing my high LFTs and acute abdominal pain. I had a liver ultrasound done which showed I have gallstones. Doctor said I must be unlucky as I am quite young to have gallstones and they are more common in women than men. I believe I should have been diagnosed much earlier as I first went to A&E in October with the pain, but no ultrasound was performed until today. The doctor said I would need to have an ERCP procedure to remove the stones. This involves having another endoscopy done. I had an endoscopy last week for the first time and though it only lasted around four minutes, it was extremely unpleasant. An ERCP takes significantly longer and requires sedation. I am back at home now. I am still having pain but the codeine is keeping it in check. Is it safe for me to be at home with gallstones? Has anyone in the community had them?
