Have any of you had them? I had these "attacks" for a few years
where I would have this pain in my abdomen and through to my back..and
they would spasm and slowly get worse over a few hours until I was
throwing up with each spasm. I went to the ER the first time it
happened because I couldn't stop and they told me that it was likely
"sludge" in my gall bladder and that they couldn't see any stones. So
i left it at that and it stopped happening after a while. It happened
again Tuesday night, after a lovely 4 year break without them. and my
stomach has been hurting on and off again todaysince lunch. If it gets any worse, I am going to the ER to hopefully see what is going on for sure (and to try and avoid another hellish night like Tuesday).
ok...here are my questions:
If you have had gallbladder issues, what did it feel like?
What did your doc do about it?
and, just because i worry about everything down the road...how long might i be forced to TTA if i did have to have it removed?
