So I am new to these forums and thought I may get some answers to my problem. I am a Caucasian male, in my mid twenties, and not overweight. On both sides of my family there is gall bladder problems.
So it all started six years ago when I ate ice cream, after a hour I was doubled over in pain. When I got to the hospital and they told me I was having abdominal cramps and gave me a drink called a pink lady. A year later I ate something that didn’t agree with me, a hour later I threw up a dark green/black liquid. At the time though nothing of it and passed it off.
The two years later it started to get worse and the pain got unbearable. I again at something that didn’t agree with me and that night I was sick to my stomach. For the next month I couldn’t eat anything and some minor pain in my abdominal pain started on the right upper side of my abdominal area. it got worse an eventually I went to the hospital, they told me it was it was cramps. I went to my doctor due to I was in the hospital at least twice a month. He sent me to get a ultra sound, but nothing was significant. Still the pain was there and it started to hurt under my right shoulder blade, so he sent me again, but nothing. He sent me for another test were it show how the gall bladder is functioning, and well they told me that is was working at half of what it should be. So my doctor said he couldn’t do anymore and sent me to a specialist.
This specialist sent me to every test and nothing, they showed that my intestines, spleen, liver, stomach, was fine. My gall bladder was fine since the ultra sounds showed no stones. So after a year and a half of testing he said that he couldn’t do anymore and that to keep talking medication to stop the pain, which didn’t help that much. I went to another specialist to get a second opinion but after looking at my file he said there is nothing significant to say that I need my gall bladder out. Yet he mentioned that it wasn’t functioning properly.
After a year of being pain free I started to get them back a month ago, I am all out of ideas. Do I go to another specialist? or do I suffer since the cant do anything about it?
