Strange that it was so low. My attacks where always higher up. You know the three incisions that go at an angle on right. The pain from my gallbladder was always under what is now the middle incision- right at the edge of the ribcage.

I never had the gas left in my abdomen that I've seen others mention? Morphine caused my blood pressure to really drop during surgery - I warned them this would happen, when telling me about it after they seemed surprised that I was right. I was given percocets for pain control. I discovered that I cannot take them, they cause bad nausea, vomiting, and dizziness (again, blood pressure problem) - and are mostly useless for pain anyways. Acetaminophen alone was enough to take the edge off.

I had a prescription for Zofran called in shortly after I got home from the hospital - when they thought the vomiting was from anesthesia. Zofran is a dissolvable tablet that is given to those who can't keep pills down. Works fairly well and fast.

I suggest that if anyone is on any other medications or has health problems to stress this with the doctors before surgery. It can prevent some problems, like drug interactions with a current prescription.

Sorry, I meant gall bladder, not just bladder

I was looking at other posts about the pain.
The last time was the end of October.
I have another problem now also.
My period is coming anyday and I get terrible cramps every month.
There is no way I can get tests with that pain.
Did you have to get tests the first time you saw the Dr.

I went to the ER, mind, but they gave me a urine test, a number of blood tests (including pregnancy, of course. ) and an ultrasound, which confirmed gallstones.

I was on morphine, so none of them bothered me.

They never pressed on my stomach. I was diagnosed through the ultrasound.

My dad and sister both had gall bladder surgery.
Here gallbladder surgery is almost a day procedure. In one day and out the next morning. And they do it laproscopically now instead of making an actual incision. You just have 3 little puncture woulds.

Do you all think that is what the problem is?

Since you mentioned problems with your period and bad cramping, it could very well be something else.
Why wouldn't you be able to get tests with the pain? You have to endure it at home and still make it through basic activities, so the tests shouldn't be that much harder.

I hope your doctor can figure out what's going on and that it's nothing too serious (ie, if it is gallbladder related and that has to come out - that's not as serious as other problems could be).

The period bad has nothing to do with this pain.
I have always had that since I started my period.
This bad pain was once a year until this June.
Now it happenes more often but is always after i have something greasy.
Once I throw up alot it is gone.
