I have recently been diagnosed with gall stones and unfortunately where I am there is a 10 month wait for surgery. I am controlling the nausea by eating very small amounts and cutting out all fat, meat, greasy food, egg, etc. My question is for anybody who has gone through this before. often at night my abdomen swells up and it's quite painful, plus it disturbs my sleep. If I sit up really straight and stretch out my abdomen it eases the pain slightly but this is also a rather uncomfortable position that's definitely not designed for sleep. I've tried yoga. I've tried getting on all fours and arching my back or putting a stack of pillows under my abdomen. I'm at the point where it's making me kind of mental and I have 9 months left to wait for surgery.
Does anyone know a way of easing this pain. I don't know why it happens mostly at night
