I had a gall bladder attack. Ultrasound showed it to be enlarged to size of softball, has sludge ,gravel size stones and hardening on one side of gall bladder. I have a lot of pain . I swell really bad when I eat. I m scheduled for a test tomorrow to see if it is working. Does this sound like I need surgery. I have been miserable for 3 weeks now.
HELP!!!! I suffer with gallblader attacks, I m having my gallblader removed in the new year, I m having attacks once a week really bad ones, I have been to A&E a few times but by the time I get there the pain is gone, this is after I have been in pain all day, the pain gets so severe I think I m going to die there is nothing I can do to stop the pain, I was prescribed buscopan and cocodamol to take when I m in pain, these do not work for instance, my pain started at 1 pm I took 20 mg of buscopan and 1000 mg of paracetamol and then the same at 4pm the pain is getting worse and I know where this us heading again. What do I do????? I even got prescribed tramadol which the consultant said not to take and just to take paracetamol and buscopan.
I am 24 years old and have gallstones, i have been eating so well but i am getting the attacks more often and for longer!! I get them acouple of times a week, sometimes i dont even eat before i get an attack! Last night i had an attack and it was one of the worst ones that i have had, i was spewing from the pain that i was in, then today i have had a continues pain all day on both sides of my ribs. I have not been up to the hospital because i have to kids so i cant really get up there without mucking them around, do you think i should go up there???
i have burning cramps in my feet which prevents me walking. I get shooting pains in my arms and sudden swelling with red blotchy skin of my hands that comes and goes. I feel tired and run down and often find I can t continue after mid/late afternoon so I have to rest. My memory is shockingly bad and I m female age 45. My Iron levels are usually in the high range of normal and a few weeks ago it was alarmingly high but has returned to my normal . There were some liver enzymes detected in my last 2 blood tests and I am waiting for an ultra sound scan of my liver.
Hi Doctor, i have a pain in my right side of my abdomen, exactly on the place where liver is located. it started when i was in hospital treating for malaria, pneumonia and typhoid fever. the examination result for these diseases in different hospitals was different. but i took all the prescribed drugs. When I check i check my liver except there was enlargement of liver and spleen, they called Hepatosplenomegaly they told me that the size and function of the liver is fine. but still the pain after a year and half is continuing. sometimes it is low and other time very strong which i feel it very well when i asleep by that side. plus i have disc prostitution case which is not treated. So, my question is do you think that the problem is liver case or associated with the disc problem?
Earlier this year I noticed a dark brown mark on my scrotum which at first I thought was a bruise. It is painless and completely flat. Looks probably like a liver spot and is about 1cm wide when I stretch/flatten out the skin. If anything the mark has faded rather than gone darker. Could it just be a liver spot or freckle - i am quite a freckled person. I'm 35 years of age.
hi im a 27 yr old male who recently started getting heart palpitations. I had blood tests done aswell as a 24 hour holter moniter test, im yet to recieve relsults on the holter moniter though my blood tests indicate that my liver enzymes are at 3.0 due to fatty cells is there anyway that high liver enzymes cause heart problems and if so what would i expect once all tests are in?
