I have been told that I have to have my gallbladder out because of multiple stones. I have been in hospital three times within two weeks as the pain is worse than having a baby. I know I have had 4. They will not operate. They have put me on the waiting list (8 wks) the pain killer do not work. What can I do?
I am not familiar with details of medical care in your country, however, based on recurring attacks I would discuss with your physicians the possibility of having the surgery sooner. Alternatively, if possible seek medical care outside of your health system.
