hello well ive been suffereing since my son was 10 weeks old i woont go into all the detail i will be here all day otherwise. anyway end of last month i took myself of to a&e at 3am as i was having pain in my heart and i thought i was having a heart attack! anyway ecg came back normal so did bloods. i went to the loo after the attack and when i wiped it had like a green mucos slime on the paper is this something to do with the gallbladder, and i went a few times after that but wenj i wiped there was a green tinge on the paper, could it of been sludge that the sonogrpaher missed ? i dunno im so fed up its ruining my life, im only 23 years old and want answers! my doc seems to think its stomach ulcers but ive been on meds for 4 months now and im still getting the same symptoms,ive had an ultrasound and no stones were dected but i had a polyp. plus ive been getting all the typical symptoms of gallbladder issues. thanx for taking your time in reading and replying.
Hi Rachael, i am also 23 and i have been having the pain you described for the last year mine also began after my daughter was born when she was around 4 weeks old, she is now 14 months old. I went to a&e around 13 times trying to get answers and nothing until i told a doctor that i thought it was gallstones which they still didnt believe! I was diagnosed 6 weeks ago and i am awaiting an operation. I think that you need to just push and push with the doctors/hospital and ask for every test there is to do! they are horrible things to have, and even more horrible and frustrating when it feels no one is listening to you and especially with a baby! the green sludge when you go to the toilet is also a symptom associated with gallstones it can be sludge in your common bile duct where a stone can be stuck i have this and it was only detected during an mri scan! i hope you get sorted really really soon and just dont give up with the hospital and doctors! take care!
