    The appointment went fine. There was a time that she had me roll onto my left side and then stand up while she scanned. She said that there was a lot of gas that made it difficult hence the positioning.
    She said that the doc should have the results this afternoon.

    Let us know as soon as you find something out! I am glad the appointment went well and I am crossing my fingers that everything comes back fine or at least the tests will give you some answers! Have a good weekend

    I got the results today. My gallbladder is enlarged/ From what I gather online this means I have gallbladder disease.
    Two things fall under this umbrella.
    Cholecystitis-inflamation of the gallbladder
    and
    Cholelithiasis-gallstones.

    I looked at all the symptoms and I have nearly all of them. One of the causes is severe illness.My doc is sending the results onto the GI doc whom I see the beginning of Feb. Online it says surgery is how to take care of this.

    Anyone have any other knowledge of this?

    Hi Kasey,

    My Niece had an inflamed gallbladder when she was 16 due to unknown reasons. She had surgery to fix it and did just fine. That was 7 years ago and she's still doing just fine. I don't have any detailed info for you, but I figured a success story would be encouraging. This could very well solve your digestion problems. That's a good thing, even though right now it doesn't sound very good to have to possibly have surgery.

    Default hi

    Hi,

    Just to say i am thinking of you and sending you positive vibes. A few months ago i was having a few of your symptoms and my doctor said 'yes it sounds like you have gallstones'' Yet again after a scan came back ok (which is a good thing i know) i get put on pills and sent on my merry way. Still have the same pains,burning,bloating,weeing.....but not the digestive problems you have. Hope they help you soon so you feel much better.

    Love
    Angel.xx
