I was nt warned to stay away from anything with codine in it! Recently I suffered a knee injury so they prescribed me Co codamol, I took 2 tonight instead of 1 as in pain and have woken up in agony :( exactly the same pain as when I'd previously had a gall stone attack excruciating! Luckily I typed into Google swiftly and read about others with exactly the same thing happening after removal of their gall bladder! Someone advised drink milk it ll help, thank you so much that person a glass of milk and sorting upright have helped it pass quickly. But please people in my situation do not take codeine and go and tell your doctor about it! It should be on your notes,I will be complaining on Monday that's for sure! Any one else had this happen??

  • Thank you so much for this information - I am on codeine for tooth problems, and have been a while now, but am due to get my gallbladder out, and no-one has told me about this. I know you can't abruptly stop codeine, and I also haven't yet resolved the tooth infections I've been getting, so I wasn't planning on stopping it until after that was sorted, but this information will change that I think. Have you had any other problems post-gallbladder removal, or is that the only one? Thanks
