I've posted many times on my poor daughter's constant pain below middle of her ribs. She saw a private slug of a gastro twice - had an abdominal scan that showed gallstones which means her gallbladder needs to be removed. 3 yrs back and forth to GP and no advice from 6 monthly Endo check ups. No one of them made a connection with thyroid and gallbladder stones. Any ways we are now going back to GP who is very sweet but not great, basically need her as the lead for op at a private hospital as we cannot use the awful slug of a gastro again. The worry is the pain still might occur after the op which I put to the slug as I thought he might check for a possible hiatus hernia but he suggested my daughter have the gallbladder out and get back to him after (never in a million years). Need to call Hos as she may have to have a lead gastro if our GP is not enough.
So 3yrs and my daughter just might be on the road to recovery of this constant pain. She lost weight slowly on the Paleo AI diet and still the pain persisted. Fingers crossed now to get her op underway.
