I have recently been diagnosed with gallstones having had several 'attacks', raised lf and ultrasound results. For the last week I have been suffering with constant, reasonably intense pain. I saw my GP who said this was normal with GB and prescribed a stronger dose of co-codamol. It takes the edge off, but the pain is still there- it moves from my back to my front. I've struggled to find anything to suggest that this pain is indeed normal, as most info just suggests the attacks are the cause of pain. I also have chills and nausea, occasional hotness and no jaundice. I am on a low fat diet.
I'm on the waiting list (6 months) for surgery, and cannot imagine spending that time with this constant pain? Although the attacks are awful pain, at least they aren't constant!
I'd be really grateful for any advice. Thanks in advance.
