Feeling rather sorry for myself. Was in agony last night and sick and had to call the doctor out who says ive probably got kidney stones. Got to go for a scan at hospital and feel terrible. Especially seeing as im banned from eating fat in the mean time - no more chocolate Grrrrr

EDIT - im a plank, its gall stones, not kidney stones - DURRR

Most common treatment appears to be minor surgery.........I know someone who is in constant pain due to gall bladder problems but they won't operate so if they do advise you to get your gall bladder removed, I'd get it done.

I have a gallstone and I know what you mean about the pain! People say it can be worse than childbirth! Mine was giving me trouble for months on and off until I finally had an ultrasound (I don't "do" going to the doctor's)!! But for weeks now I've not had any problems with it because I've eaten a fairly low fat diet because I REALLY dont want surgery! There are non-surgical treatments but they can take months or years to cure. However I'd suggest you stick to a very low fat diet (and no fizzy drinks) and you should see a massive reduction in the amount of attacks. Hope that helps a tiny bit!

ooohhhh i have gall stones......VERY VERY painful when having an 'attack' i really thought i was gonna die with a bad one, palpitations, sweats, sickness, awful, buscopan can be a relief

ive not had bad attack since just after my daughter was born, really bad during pregnancy, but i do eat healthier now so that prob helps

Oh hun, sounds awful for you... xx

a friend of mine had to handle gallstones during her pregnancy... I think she had to be very careful what she ate? Not sure why....

Not a walk in the park anyway.

Good luck OP hope you feel better soon xx

mine came obv during pregnancy - bout 6 months gone, after a big mac on my sons birthday :oops: - everyone thought it was indigestion/wind but i thought i was dying, was never told why but i assumed cos baby was putting extra pressure on the gall bladder? Dr explained it was kinda like a purse and fatty foods would cause it to contract, and with the stones there, this would cause the pain....buscopan is a muscle relaxer so would ease this, watching what you eat would help cos it is fatty foods that primarily trigger it, even now if i have a really fatty bout i can 'feel' it, but not had a bad one for years

could never settle or get comfortable,oddly enough the position i was most comfortable in during an 'attack' was all fours :w00t:

'Fatty bout' made me smile, I'm sorry, but I know that the pain is awful. Fingers crossed for no more.

Pinkkitty, both my mum and my sister had their gall bladders out (a 'fairly minor' operation, they say) and were much better for it, although sis said that she got addicted to chocolate again.

i know its not kidney stones but i couldn't help it..
