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. Watch your urine and eyes for yellowish discolouration and also look out for constant itching of the skin. These are some of the symptoms of gall bladder obstruction affecting the liver I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me Regards

i am a 28 year old female. starting LAST monday the 8th (in the evening) i started having severe abdominal pains that began in the middle of my abdomen. by the next morning the pain was localized in my RLQ sharp stabbing pains, nausea without vomiting. i was seen by my family physician who immediately suspected my appendix. lab work was drawn, all labs perfectly normal. scheduled CT with contrast the next day. pain continued and intensified, continued with nausea, then the vomiting came. the ct came back normal, and was to have a f/u with my dr on thursday. they called wed to check on me and told them my symptoms were worse. they immediately brought me back into the office, drew more blood and labs still perfectly normal. they referred me to a surgeon who ordered a colonoscopy. i prepped for it that evening and it was performed the next day (thursday) my colonoscopy showed SEVERE sigmoid diverticula (much more and much worse than a person of my age should have) the procedure was otherwise unremarkable. I am still in severe pain, had pelvic ultrasound which showed a hemmorragic cyst inside my right ovary. transvaginal ultrasound yesterday showed the cyst has since disappeared. I am now scheduled for exploratory laproscopic abdominal surgery to see what could be the source of my pain. what do you think is going on with me? i have never been in this much painever. am now taking percocet 7.5 and lortab 10 around the clock. i have not been able to keep anything down in 5-7 days. was in the ER and received i.v fluids on monday night. also am taking zofran and phenergan to try and control my nausea and vomiting, which is really not helping.

our entire family had the stomach virus. each lasting about a week. Our oldes son got over it for about a week and then caught it again. Is this normal. His ped. thinks it is just another virus. gave him some meds Zofran to calm his stomach and told us to give him some pepto bismol. Your thoughts? At what point do you start runing tests?
