GB attacks are sporadic?? anyone else


I have had gb attacks I believe anyway for the past 2 years or so. Recently diagnosed with Gallstones. My attacks are very sporadic. At times I can stop at McDonalds and have burger fries and milkshake and have no attack at all and then bang I can eat a sandwich at home and then wow I am in a full blown attack that puts me in a fetal position with extreme gas - upper abd. pain and can't take a deep breath because it causes shoulder pain it will last about 5 hours and for the next 5 days my stools are very pale.

Does this even sound like G.B. Attack? I went to the emergency department but by the time I got seen it had subsided and the dr put it down as biliary colic.

Are gb attacks very sporadic like this........

my attacks were exactly the same sometimes i could eat fatty food with no gb attack then 1 time i had tomato soup and had one. i believe biliary colic is a gb attack. i had my gb removed 3 weeks ago so hoping i dont get the pain again. hope this helps

Mine were at first.. then they got closer and closer..

right before I had mine removed I could not eat any thing with Fat in it. Even dairy would give me an attack.
