Some of you may know I was diagnosed with sludge in my gallbladder about 6 weeks post op. I would have pain on my right side under my ribs everytime I ate solid food. Then after the diagnosis I had excruciating pain one Friday night and then nothing (like a stone had passed kinda feeling). A few weeks passed and the pain came back. I went back to the doctor who referred me to a gastric doc. I have an appointment booked for Jan 2nd and a preliminary upper GI booked for Jan 9th. I called today and they were only able to move my appointment to the 2nd from the 4th, nothing available this week.
Well here's the thing...my pain is now almost constant, when I eat and drink. Now it feels like I'm bruised through to the back of my ribs on the right. And lastly (sorry way tmi) my bm's are chalky in color for about 3 days now. As I said I called today, told the doctors' rooms all of this but can't get in for a week.
For those of you whom have had your gallbladders out, what were your symptoms and at what point do you make a decision to go to the ER or wait it out?
Any input is appreciated.
