Wondering if it has been common with others here to have gall bladder issues after CC? I been suffering for about a week now with this feeling like there is something stuck in the pit of my stomach. Right between the ribs. It radiates up into my throat and goes straight through my back. I have also been burping often.
I went to the ER after speaking to the nurse over the phone .. of course they need to rule out cardiac. Which thankfully was all negative. Knowing I have stones from my CT scans (which have never bothered me) they presumed that was the issue. After getting an anti inflamitory drug given and symtoms dramatically decreased, I was sent home. Blood work all good. No infection at this point or obstruction.
Now, of course the discomfort is right back. I was instructed to return for a sonogram if things don't get better. Which I will be doing. I was just wondering if this is a common thing after having CC or just a fluke thing? Also, I was wondering if this will be a big problem as far as diet goes having lost all of my large intestine and part of my small, if they need to remove gall bladder?
