Posted on Sun, 29 Dec 2019
Question: I have gallstones and two nights ago I had a pretty bad attack that relaxed after a little while. The next day I had some low grade gallbladder pain coming and going throughout the day and has continued into today. I have never had gallbladder pain last this long. The spot where my gallbladder is, is tender and hurts to the touch. Is this normal?

Brief Answer:
Consult with gastrosurgeon...

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

I have gone through your query and here is my advice.

As per your history, it may not be normal and should be evaluated.

Please let me know do you have fever, yellowish skin /urine, back ache, body itching?

For further assessment, I would suggest you to consult with gastrosurgeon for detailed clinical examination.

He may procure computed tomography abdomen, MRCP /ERCP, liver function test, complete hemogram as per evaluation.

As you have severe pain, I would suggest you to undergo cholecystectomy i e removing the gall bladder to prevent further complications like jaundice, pancreatitis after gastrosurgeon opinion.

Till then for pain you can take tablet acetaminophen. Avoid fatty foods.

Hope I have answered your query and let me know if I can assist you further.
