HELP!!! I am seriously ready to just give up. I have seen lots of posts on this but really no answers, just people saying they have the same thing. I have all the classic signs for the last 2 years of gallbladder pain, all my tests are normal, 2 hida scans, 4 ultrasounds, 1 abdominal CT, I keep having attacks, I am diagnosed with chronic unexplained abdominal pain and am on a 100mcg fentanyl patch and 16 mg of dilauded every 4 hours, both of which do jack while my attacks are on. I go to ER every single attack only to have them say YES its your gallbladder, we just need an abnormal test to remove it… EVERYTHING is always ALWAYS normal, I am ready to jump off a bridge, my abdominal pain is so bad. 4 years ago I had kidney stones but passed them, then was diagnosed with H Pylori but eradicated it after 2 treatments, then the pain changed to this gallblader pain. I did have one radiologist suggest highly that I should have an ERCP but NO one will touch me, surgeon says something such as scans, bloodwork etc must be abnormal. My GI doctor just says take more meds. My GP says I can't help you, live with it… thats the problem, I cannot live with it, I am a nurse and cannot work, cannot play with my kids, my abdominal pain is so bad. Is there ANYTHING I can do or do I have to just "Live with it" Like they say to?
