I was recently informed by my doctor after having an ultrasound and Hyda scan done, that my gall bladder is not functioning and will be removed. This all stemmed from some issues that started almost 3 months ago. I have been having horrible abdominal pain that comes and goes and have either vomitted or had diarrhea after every meal I eat. The type of food does not matter. I have also as of a few weeks ago been having a dull throbbing pain above my hip bones on either side in my back. I never have a fever, but I am always cold and almost always feel naucious. I have had to miss work somedays because the pain is so bad and just like that it can disappear or go back to just a dull throbbing. Does anyone have any ideas on what could possibly be going on? Thank you!View Thread
