I feel like my GB is fine, BUT....
After having an acute Pancreatitis attack last week, doctor feels I should have it removed.
Never had a problem. Healthy weight. One AM> got horrendous pains, thought I would die, suffered for over a day, went to ER and was DX with AP. No gallstones, lots of sludge, and a dilated Pancreatic duct.
My GP has referred me to surgeon and I have a GE appt in Jan.
Im not eating much, my appetite has faded a bit. but I dont feel that bad. Just very lethargic and sometimes pains on my right side. But nothing like the suffering Im reading about, and Im very grateful.
Im 44, and Ive had 3 Abdominal surgeries since age of 14. Not sure if I would qualify for Laparoscopy....
Im just so confused.
I can see why I need to take it out. It will only take one crystal or stone to destroy my pancreas and liver, but it just seems weird as it seems that my GB is fine otherwise.
I hope Im ordered a HIDA scan so I can find out whats truly going on.
The results also stated they couldnt exclude Ischemic Colitis as a result of Pancreatitis. So, I had a lot going on. Guess Im just in shock at how fast this went.
