Hello bethels70,

Pale stools, dark yellow urine instead of your bright orange colour, abdominal pain with history of gallstones everything fit for obstructive jaundice which needs to be confirmed by some blood investigations...
If you severe abdominal pain and continuous vomitting you need immediate hospitalization otherwise you can get your investigations done, confirm the diagnosis and act accordingly.
If you are having obstructive jaundice due to gallstones its better remove the stones as soon as possible.
For your hashimotos thyroid hormone needs to be replaced rregularly.....
With regards
