I'm sitting in here, in pain, feeling very unwell, and a bit confused.
I have had two gallstone attacks this week, I've had one before in 2012. as it was just a one off I was advised to leave it unless it became a recurring problem.
In 2012 I was admitted to hospital for two days, given a drip and some strong pain relief which really helped.
I had a very painful attack on Friday night, but it passed after a few hours, so I thought it would be another on off and left it. Though my gallbladder still felt 'sore'.
Yesterday after 12pm it came back with a vengeance. I was being sick (bile) and was in agony.
I went to a&e, where I was given an examination (which made me shriek like an injured hyena), some anti sickness meds and a blood test said I didn't have an infection.
The doctor said to go home with codeine and come back if the pain was uncontrolled. I was in tears at the pain, and dh said 'It isn't controlled now!'. He just repeated himself and gave me a letter to give to my gp.
That was at 8pm last night.
I'm still in pain, being sick, and am unsure what I am supposed to do. Just ride it out? They gave me no idea how long I would feel like this for.
