Hi i just found out i have gallstones i was rushed to hospital a few weeks ago because the pain was so bad im not booked in to see a doctor until october and i have no idea when something will be done about it.Since then ive had 3 really bad nite with pain and vomiting and im finding it really hard to look after my girls who are 4months and 2yrs from the pain.What foods can i and cant i eat to try and help avoid the severe pain and is thier anything i can take for the pain.
The stones could cause repeated inflammations of the gall bladder resulting in pain. The gall bladder may have to be removed surgically. As you wait for your doctor's appointment, you could avoid all fatty food and you can take OTC Acetaminophen for relief from pain.
