i could just cry..

Hi guys,,

i have posted before about gallstone stuff but im so frustrated its not funny..

i went to an after hours doc before chistmas b'cos i was in pain, he suggested i pay out for an abdominal scan b'cos the waiting list at public hospital is long, so i did this, and that showed gallstones, the only reason i knew this is b'cos the radioligst told me as she was doing the scan and showed me them on the screen, that info was then sent to my normal doctor but i nver heard anything back from him.. so anyway, i carried on as per usual but then about two weeks ago i went back to my usual doctor b'cos of bloating.. it feels soooooooooooo horrible, wen i eat, and combind with the stomache pain i keep having its making life so darn difficult, im just not having any fun here.. so anyway i told the doctor about the bloating cos thats the worst and he had a look at my stomache and said there was too much acid, gave me some pills that i thought were working but now im not so sure, ive lost a lot of weight (intentionally) and he said when that happens it can take a while for the body to stop producing as much acid.. so i said to him "could it be b'cos of the gallstones"? and he said "oh hmm, i forgot about those" but didnt say yes or no, he has refered me to the hospital to have my gallbladder out, but said htat could be months or years..

i guess my question is, is bloating a common side effect of gallstones? and what about LOWER stomache pain? (on the right side at the mo) i no that the pain up under the ripcage is, but i havent had that in a while, its all in my lower stomache, and over the last few days, this is kinda gross, but my **** floats!! is that something that happens with gallstones? seem to be going from diareah to consitpation and now floating ****? sorry for the graphics LOL but i really cant afford to be running to the doctor to much but am getting really tired of feeling so yuck all the time.. tonight i just wanna cry, ive had dinner and i feel sick and look like im 3 months pregnant and my stomaches cramping and argh..

thanks for reading

Re: i could just cry..

oh also, he did some blood test and the results were aparently pretty normal, he tested liver kidneys, iron was slightly low but nothing to worry about b12 was fine, all the nurse said was somthing about white cell showing there had been an infection but that there wasnt anything to worry about, so they all came back fine by the sounds, geez if this is b'cos of gallbladder i sure hope it doesnt take a couple of years to get hte damn thing out!
