Just need some information. Same old story...again.
Had the gallbladder out around sixteen years ago. No relief.
Every test known to man. Nothing. Doctor more or less said
it was all in my head. Many doctors. Many tests. Nothing.
The years go on and I deal with it. I hear about these
adhesions from my new and much better doctor. Said better to
leave them alone. Fine. I read up on them. Read this web site. It helps.
I'm sure that is my problem. What else can it be ? Nothing ever shows
up on the testse. Neither does adhesions and I'm not about to let
them hack me open again...actually it was one of the
first laproscopic gallbladder removals in my area...lucky me.
My problem is that they "flair up" from time to time.
It could be for a few days or weeks. Sometimes even a few
hours ( especially after a bowel movement ). Somestimes
the pain is mild, sometimes severe enough where I'd like
to cut my stomach open or, right where the gallbladder
use to be. Then it goes away as quick as it came on.
Sometimes I can go months without an attack. Sometimes weeks.
Now it's like Hell. Right where the gallbladder use to
be and at this moment I need just a little reasurrance.
I haven't any other symptoms. No lose of appetite. No weight
lose. No fatique or throwing up. At fifty eight I run
ultra marathons and box and do karate and am just a bundle of
energy but.......it's this g*&&^%$#@ pain; adhesions.
I'm just wondering, again if anyone out there has the
Does your attacks or flair ups come on occassion ?
Does the pain come in waves ?
Does stress seem to play a part.
Do you have periods where there isn't any pain at all?
I have noticed that as time goes on these attacks
sometimes get a little ( a lot ) worse. Anyone
out there have similar symptoms ? Right they're
killing me so any bit of advice will help.
