This might be on the wrong Forum I wasn't sure where to put it.
For me I suffer pain all over the worst being in the upper back, lower back, stomach,
legs, buttocks, all over deep pain.
When I went to this new Pain Clinic one of the goals was to cut back on meds. I was
in total agreement. Became physically tolerant/ addicted and it was not helping my pain.
Anyway the Pain Doctor did not want to discuss my stomach (I was shocked) he
said we need to start on your lower back. Well that has been the focus, shots and more
Injections and now with so much less pain meds., the pain has escalated everywhere.
I decided I would get the fourth Doctor's opinion on my bloated stomach after being told it was
just gas, diet issues on and on. One Doc. had an e-ray nothing showed up and he said just
watch what you eat.
New Doctor had a Ultrasound taken and guess what the man that took it was shocked.
He says you have so many Gallstones some as big as 1 to 11/2 " long. His comment
was no wonder you are in pain and so sick.
I am so so happy scheduled for surgery to remove and hopefully I can wear my normal
clothes, eat decent food (I live on crackers, Gatorade, turkey, chicken) and at 65 won't look
like I am ready to have a baby. Plus I hope it helps the back pain.
To tell you the truth I did bring Gallbladder up to the #2 Doctor who brushed it off.
So if you don't get answers or it continues pursue answers.
I won't comment on the Pain Clinic we will see how they act when I tell them.
Have a good as possible for what you are going through.
