need help gallstones

hi well il start from the beginning, it may be long, sorry lol

Was due for gastric bypass 13th november, for 2 weeks before had to follow a special milk diet, to shrink the liver, was feeling really unwell towards the end on sunday before op i went to out of hours doc with bad tummy pains and he said it was gastritis and sent me home with pills and anti sickness pills, i took some and on the way home had to pull over i was violently sick on the side of the road (yuk) and it burnt!! got back and went via my parents within an hour of being there id been violently sick 3 more times and the pain was getting worse so my sister drove me to local a&e was seen within 10 mins and given morphine. pain eased a bit, was transferred to another hospital, had a xray and ultrasound that showed a 26 mm gallstone trapped in the neck of my gallbladder and acute cholecystitis (infection of bladder) my temp spiked and oxygen levels dropped, i spent the next few days out of it on meds, and was given 2 doses of extra strong antibiotic through drip the pain eased over few days and on the thursday they sent me home under close watch and with more antibiotics, and the plan is to get the hospital to remove my gallbladder at the same time as my bypass, which will be in the new yr now. had to get more bloods done to check my white blood cell count make sure its come down, i had that done today so hopefully next week will have results, iv been eating healthier foods, but really struggling with feeling sick and severe discomfort and sorry tmi yellow diaroeha especially after food, why is this happening is it an infection still there? or will the stone cause these problems until removal? seen gp again today and been given more antibiotics she said i could still be inflamed....and no one knows whether the stone is still trapped in the neck of my gallbladder or if its dropped back in ?! im going out my mind constantly tired and sore on my shoulder blades back under my breasts and abdomen. do i need to demand a scan?? and they wont do bypass and gallbladder removal until gp has wrote to them stating im better and fit for surgery which they obviously cant do while i feel so poorly and on medication etc...some one please advise or help if you can x sorry its long x

Re: need help gallstones

Yes, you definitely need more testing. It's possible to remove a lodged stone without removing the gb so that could do that now. It's called an ERCP. And eat NO FAT at all until this is sorted out.

Re: need help gallstones

I don't know. I'm in the US and our health system is different.
