My nephew had his gallbladder removed a couple of years ago. He went into emergency with severe abdominal pain. The gallbladder was imbedded in his liver. After his surgery he noticed that he still had mild pain (more of a discomfort) in the area of his surgery. His doctor, at the time, told him that it was probably his bile duct, and he performed an additional surgery for the bile duct. :confused:
Since then, my nephew has been in pain, and cannot even hold down a job because the pain is constant. He's been to three other doctor's and they cannot find anything wrong with him. :( He has gone to emergency several times when the pain is intense, and they send him home because they say they can't find anything wrong with him. A few times he's had elevated blood counts. The only other alternative that has been offered to him as been the recommendation of pain therapy. Has anyone heard of this before? There isn't much on line about this (post gall bladder/bile duct/abdominal pain). If anyone has any suggestions on this subject, please notify me!
