Brief Answer: Symptoms of gall bladder obstruction Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query The symptoms you are describing suggests gall bladder obstruction due to gall stones. Symptoms have come by because the normal flow of bile from the gall bladder into the intestine is obstructed because of the gall stones I suggest you see a surgeon immediately and get a repeat Ultrsound abdomen done, I would also like you to get a liver function test and a complete blood count to check for affection to the liver and infection respectively In the mean time I suggest the following 1. Avoid eating food XXXXXXX in fat 2. Avoid milk and milk products 3. Ondansetron mouth dissolving tablets taken half an hour before meal will help you with the vomiting and nausea. 4.
