Upper Abdominal Pain
I am a 35 year old female who had my gallbladder removed over 12 years ago. It contained almost 50 stones. I am experiencing gallbladder type symptoms. Pain in my upper stomach which shoots through to by back, nausea, tenderness off to my right side, ect. I am very concerned! Any input?? Thank you!
I would recommend you consult with a GI specialist. Many other things can have the same symptoms as galllbadder pain. Things like reflux and ulcer disease present in a similar way for some people.
