iv'e been having pain on both sides near my kidneys for about 3-4 weeks now & i was prescribed tetracycline for 1 week but that didn't help! i had my gallbladder removed on aug.13th. the pain started about a week after that. could this pain be from the surgery? what do u think i shoud do now since the antibiotics didn't work?
Tetracicline as an antibiotic can protect you from infections from the surgery, at your case (gallbladder).
Pain in the kidneys (back) is related to the wound of the specific surgery. Antiflamotary drugs like Ponstan or depon (Paracetamol) can reduce pain.
We would suggest also Vitamin B6 daily doses in order to dissolve lipids from your blood, because gall bladder dissolves chelesterol and lipids, also improves digestion.
You should follow a special diet, it should be Ayurvedic Anti- Vata diet or alike.
We usually prescribe at such cases homeopathic medicines, like Iris Vers. 30C, and Chelidonium 30C. One dose per day usually balances these problems. You may check with your local homeopath (licensed and certified, of course).
