pain in right side
i too have a pain in my right side, i have gone to over 20 drs in the last 10 years trying to find out what was wrong. they picked me apart piece by peice, removing organs, starting with a full hysterectomy, then more exploratory, then my gall bladder..and after each surgery i still had the pain, so all that for nothing. I lost my ability to have children, my digestion is all screwed up now and have flare ups that cause my liver, my spleen and my kidneys to swell and become very painful with rapid weight loss. My last flare up was 2 months ago and i lost 15 lbs in two weeks. scary, but i am petrified to go back to a Dr. for fear they will hack me up even more. I finally resorted to eastern medicine techniques and got a bionetic screening. They told me I had a high level of toxins and acid build up. After much research i found that I am sufferring from Acidosis where if your PH balance is off it causes all kinds of trouble such as the symptoms I have been having. I have balanced out my alkaline intake and lowered my acidifying food content and that has helped me in so many ways. Dont let Drs tell you to take pain management courses or suggest you are making it up because they dont know what they are talking about and rather tag you as insane than go through extended trouble of looking at what is really going on. They are only human and they dont know everything, obviously.

Hey I know it has been 2 years or so since you posted, but I had a question for you. I have also been losing weight rapidly, 15 lbs in a little over a week, and I am, too, having pain where my gallbladder would be. Did the doctors ever tell you that you should choose a diet that results in slower weight loss? Or was the main problem just in your ph levels?

PAIN
Hello, I was having this horrible, horrible pain that felt like what I would describe as a "heart attack" for 6 years. I went to doctor after doctor after doctor. They continued to tell me that is heart burn and worse heart burn. I was at work one day and I almost passed out from the pain. I went to the emergency room and the ER doctor did an EKG and then told me that he thinks I have gallstones. I had an ultrasound a couple of days later and sure enough, my gallbladder was full of stones. They removed it the very next morning. The "heart attack" pain went away for a while, but slowly, but surely it is coming back stronger and stronger. The doctors told me I have a fibroid tumor that is the size of a three month pregnancy. I was very scared just hearing the word tumor. My doctor then admitted me into the hospital and continued to tell me basically that it is all in my head. She told me it's just heart burn. I also get heart burn, so I do know the difference between heart burn and my description of a "heart attack". She gave me a CT scan and said there's nothing, told me I was depressed and sent me home. Now the day I was hospitalized was almost a year ago and the pain just continues to get stronger. Someone help please!!!

Pain
Last year I went to the hospital 30x and was told there was nothing wrong with me, finally I saw an ER doctor that told me I had borderline appendicitis was admitted to the hosptial and saw a surgeon the next day was told that I was fine, I went to my GYN and she said that it needed to come out, had the surgery and pain continued now here it is another year and have been to the hospital 3x with more abdominal pain had my gall bladder removed last week, still having the same pain and pain meds aren't helping at all I am just high all day... I like you "cbmatdavis" am very scared. Seems like the doctors don't know anything, I have been to every specialist, had ultrasounds, ct scans, mri's and surgerys, but no one can get rid of the pain, the doctors are starting not to take me seriously anymore. Try to go to a pain management specialist sometimes they can pinpoint the pain but don't take the pain meds because it will only mask the pain when there could be a serious issue going on and you won't know until it's to late. I don't care if you have to go to the hospital or doctor 50x in a year don't let them make you think you're crazy because they don't want to do their job and help you. Also try to change you diet, get plenty of rest, don't let stress play a factor in your like because it can manifest itself into pain, and so can depression. I don't know you but I hope you get well and that you get the pain relief you need

Pain after gallbladder is gone. Even after 8 years.
I had my gallbladder out in 2002 so that's been almost 8 years. My Dr. was very nice and said I might feel some pain for the rest of my life. I have been taking an over the counter supplement for about 6 years called Liver Aid made by Liverrite. I ran out almost 2 weeks ago and can tell the difference, anyway, when I am taking this supplement the pain goes away. No, it's not a pain med so it's not masking anything it just helps to support liver function.

I have been doing some research and have come up with connections between vitamin d, gallbladder, melatonin and calcium. Some of the connections between calcium and the gallbladder are: Limy bile, porcelain gallbladder, UV exposure and incidence of gallstones and mixed-type gallstones. It is my belief that the gallbladder plays a very important role in the body to do with calcium metabolism/buffering/regulation.
Try a magnesium only supplement and start at low doses. It should take several days if it's going to work for you.

Pain taken over
I had my gallbladder taken out in 7th grade, im about to start 11th soon and im still having pain. I hate missing so much school to see doctors that dont know what the heck their talking about. Some times i set and cry because im stressing my mom out and the what go away. I just wish for once i could go to the doctor and get an answer too my problem. I make great grades for missing as mush as i do, but it is still hard to plan a future when you know it conisits of the same pain.
My mother had hers taken out and she has no problems. The only time she takes off is to take me to the docters. She near takes time for self because knows that menuim wage is all we have to get by. I what to help out but i dont know who would hire someone with problems.

post gallbladder pain
I had my gallbladder removed in April 2010 and have been having problems ever since and sincerely wish i had not bothered having the surgery. I have pain daily, cannot sleep at night, sometimes the pain is so severe i end up in hospital as i don't know what else to do. I have had scans, an ERCP. which caused a whole heap of problems and i am at a loss as to what to do next. I am due to see a gastroenterologist, but even he has admitted there is not much he can do for me. I am only 39 and can't bear the thought that i may have this problem for the rest of my life. It is ruining my life, being in pain and discomfort every day is no fun and when not even doctors know what is causing it, its devastating. Just want to be pain free and not have to live like this, my daughter worries that i keep having to go into hospital. I just don't know what else i can do. Any advice appreciated.

something that might help you
if you take some powder fiber every day it will help with the stomache pain. my doctor put me on that and a prilosec a day and i feel about 80% better. most of my problems now are certain foods that are bothering me. ones i would not have thought of such as blue cheese salad dressing. i hope this helps.
