Thank you all so much for your answers and comments. I am just so lost right now... I cant take my pain med that was given cuz if i do im very ill.. more sick then i am w/o it. but if i dont,,then my pain is terrible! I c a gastro doc mon and i will let all of you know what he says. I am going to be honest with him and just beg him to take it. My sister had hers gone at 19 and my mom also was very young. maybe its not heredity but seems like it to me! I cant stand being sick anymore and it seems like theres no where to turn. Just a bunch of docs who think im fine because an ultrasound came up with nothing and docs who think im looking for drugs. To those who may think im nuts for asking a doc to take out a potentially "healthy" organ, I ask you to please put yourself in my shoes and those of others who can get no relief any other way.. again thank you and i was wondering if i could have someones email so i can talk to someone that way... my illness prevents me from doing much outside of home. my kids are 2yrs and 1yr and i can chat while they sleep!!! look forward to some addresses and wish me luck on monday!
I believe I was the one that mentioned removing a healthy organ.
This is what I am afraid of.
Although gallstones often can be dissolved by drugs or shattered by sound waves, the problem is likely to recur if these methods are used. Removal of the gallbladder provides the only permanent solution. Like all surgery, the operation poses a risk of internal bleeding or infection; and blood clots could form and lodge in the lungs, making it difficult to breath. In general, however, the procedure is relatively safe. "
This site listed below is also for the quoted material. This article will explain what you have to look forward to. With kids I do not know how you can do it. I am concerned.I want you well please try the aloe vera and I think that you are still toxic. Give it a try. If it does not work. This summer use it on sunburns and cuts.
Also go to this site there is another person with pretty much the same problem that you have. Maybe the both of you can work together.
I do wish you the best
Wow< I can sure relate to gallstone pain, although mine never showed up on ulstrasound or MRI or x-rays for years. When I was 27 I started to turn yellow, got extremely ill, went to the gastroenterologist, when they did another test with dye and a MRI they saw several stones, that were blocking my bile ducts to my liver, they removed my gallbladder, however they missed one stone that was still in my bile duct and it's still there today, it however has not caused me any problems.
I would never suggest to take out a healthy organ, but maybe you need to get a second or third opinion? Sometimes doctors get tunnel vision also, and not all their "high tech" test are always correct.
It's no joy ride having this sort of pain and constant feeling of being nauseated, so I understand your dilema. My best of luck to you, I hope you can find some answers soon.
