Hey. So im an 18 year old female from Australia. Ive been reall sick for about 2 months now. I was suffering from severe chest pain and upper abdominal pain as well as nausea, and was diagnosed with gallstones. I had my gallbladder removed in an emergency laproscopic procedure 3weeks ago and everything seemed to go fine. Pathology results confirmed that my gallbladder was highly infected, so the doctor was certain that the problem had been fixed. 2 Days after the surgery i began to suffer from the same pains again, the chest and abdominal pain was unbearable and i was soon admitted back into hospital after 2more days, where i had not slept at all. In hospital they ran blood tests, chest x-rays, another ultra sound and did a gastroscopy which all came back saying that everything was fine. The pain was still unbearable and the only way i could get any sleep or pain relief was from high doses of morphine. They kept me in hospital for about 4nights and sent me home (still in the same condition as i came in) claiming that it was just pain from the surgery and it would go away soon. For about 2 days the pain eased up and i thought that i was starting to recover, but then it came back again even worse. This time not only was i having the chest and abdominal pain (which might i add are worse at night time and early morning - the attacks start at around 10pm) but i was suffering from severe nausea, constant vommitting and diorreah, and headaches and dizziness. We have called the doctor and he honestly did not seem to care. Im currently trying to do my HSC and i cannot do it because im so sick !! Im throwing up almost every 2 hours, and after i eat im throwing up and going to the bathroom within half an hour. Please if anyone knows what is wrong with me, or has suffered the same symptoms please let me know!! I really want to figure this out and no doctors ive spoken to seem to be helping!!
