Upper back and rib pains

Hi everyone,

I have a very bad back and rib pains for months now, I was vomiting, nauseous and very dehydrated in May this year, I was so unwell that I was hospitalized for 6 days. I saw my Rheumy last week who decided to send me for an ultrasound today. I have multiple gall stones, not sure of the sizes..... It now all fits in to the symptoms. When I told my GP about my symptoms he thought I was moaning. I'm upset that when I was hospitalized that the opportunity for a scan was missed too. I feel like screaming now......

I'm going to see my GP in the morning and take things from there.

Lizz x
