Hi Yetty173004

I have been through this one regarding Cholecystitis which is inflammation of gallbladder. It says that treatment of acute cholecystitis involves hospitalization and the administration of intravenous antibiotics. The antibiotics are intended to treat the infection. Once pain and infection are gone, you can return back home to continue with your daily life. In some severe cases your doctor may opt for surgery to remove the gallbladder. Removal of the gallbladder is to prevent future episodes of acute cholecystitis from reoccurring.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Yes the gallbladder pain can even last for months not to speak of days and should be treated and managed accordingly.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care

I'm a 30-year-old female and I was hospitalized 3 years ago for my gallbladder - it started with sudden and severe pain in my upper right abdomen, vomiting , fever and dizziness. I went to the ER and they did some test that revealed my gallbladder was "inflamed" (no stones). I was admitted for 7 days for "observation and pain management." I had no insurance at the time and the hospital paid 100% of my 46k bill. I was then released and haven't had ANY issues since. For the last three years I've been waiting for another attack to strike and prepared for the seemingly inevitable gallbladder removal surgery. But there's been nothing yet. Am I crazy or is this like my life in the Bay Area where we all know the next big earthquake is coming??? Thanks!
