But before that.. the doctor used his hand pressed very forcefully against my gallbladder, pancreas, liver and other areas of stomach. I feel the pain so badly and severely .. and i see that part is now swollen too. I could barely breathe properly becuase of the intense pain. Doctor, please advise me on what to do ?
