Well Sunday early EARLY morning, I awoke to really bad heartburn,nausea and a horrible pain in my right side. Finally after a hour it wasen't as severe so I fell back asleep only to wake a hour and a half later and go through the exact same thing. I slept for another 5 hours until I woke up..

The pain did not go away all day everytime I moved I winced and it hurt really badly. Finally by 6 pm I was running a fever of 100. I kept getting hot flashes, my left arm was falling asleep, I had a massive headache.

After speaking with the dr on call. I decided to wait until the morning. I went in that next day around 11. thankfully the pain wasen't nearly as bad but after I told her all of my symptoms, She decided to push on the area. And it hurt again.

It dosen't hurt as much anymore. Only sometimes like basically after I eat although i have been trying to watch what I eat since they are thinking it may be my gall bladder, I didn't really vomit once. And to tell you the truth I have bloated up and packed on a few pounds.

I am to go tomorrow morning and have a Ultrasound of my gall bladder, and lab tests done (Fasting ATM) Not that I can eat much anyways..

I guess what i'm trying to ask is this.

I read around alot of storys and they also always ended in some kind of surgeries. I'm not too keen or comfortable with surgery, although I know they are nessacary in some cases. But are you always rushed within a few days to get it taken out if need be. Or is there some kind of waiting?

I'm an just super nervous right now =(
