Oh no! :hug2: I've heard they can be very painful indeed.
Do you have to have surgery?

I feel for you, my dad had gallstones and he was in a lot of pain.

Hope they can dissolve them for you :hug2:

I sympathise, I suffered for a year before I had my gall bladder full of stones whipped out! Honestly the worst pain I have ever experienced and I include an 18 hour labour in that list! Hope they sort them pronto for you! :hug2:

This lovely medical problem runs in my family, both my mother and grandmother had to have theirs removed.

My grandmother had a very long surgery scar, and my mother had 3 little scars. Thank goodness for medical advances.

Hope you are able to take care of them soon.

I remember an old photo of Marilyn Monroe showing off her little scar (maybe three inches, that was little then) from gall bladder surgery. See what good company you are in?! :hug2:

I hope you are able to get things taken care of soon. Being in pain is not a good thing. :hug2:

Sending every good wish for your renewed health!

thankyou all for those lovely messages, you guys really cheered me up:hug2:
yes i will be having surgery to remove my gall bladder. i'm not sure how long i will have to wait, although my g.p. told me to go to A&E if i am in agony again and they usually keep you in and sort it out. :ill:

I should mention that my mother healed very quickly due to the way that they remove gall bladders now. :yes:

Think of it this way, with the gall bladder gone you wont be having those horrible attacks. :thumbsup:
