Thank you for the query.
Quite often it happens that peptic ulcers pain is misdiagnosed and after finding gallstones, symptoms are thought to be from gallbladder
. That is why some part of gall bladder
surgeries does not give any improvement.
Gallstones pain is located in the upper right abdomen and radiates to the back. Nausea and vomiting
is present especially after fatty foods or fried foods.
Peptic ulcers pain is more in the upper middle abdomen, and does not radiates to the back. It appears after 1-2 hours of the meal, nausea and vomiting is present.
So if your symptoms are more like peptic ulcers, upper GI endoscopy
should be performed.
Other possible reason of your symptoms are stones present in the bile ducts. In such case, symptoms are very similar to gallstones symptoms.
If your symptoms sounds more like gallstones, you should have abdominal ultrasound
, blood work, liver tests (AST,ALT,GGTP,AP), amylase and if stones will be confirmed, ERCP procedure should be a remedy.
Hope this will help.
