I have had as many as 15 attacks, and I do believe it's gallstones. For every one of these attacks I have gone to the ER. But they won't admit me for it. They say nothing shows up in my blood work. I have these pains that are so unbearable it's right under my right rib and through to my back, sometimes it makes me puke, and when this does happen the pain usually goes away. This all started in 2008. Only once they have given me pain meds, other times they send me home with maalox. I know that the greasy foods cause this I have cut them out of my diet, I haven't had an attack for about 2mos. I really don't want to have another attack, Do you think I should see my Dr. for this so I can have gallbladder surgery? Do they really have to admit you if your blood work comes back positive for gallstones?Answer Question

I had problems for years before the idiot doctors figured out it was gallstones. Several ER visits and 3 other hospitalizations for dehydration from vomiting for weeks. I had to have surgery and was in the hospital for over a week because I was in such bad shape. You can have your gall bladder removed as an op. It took me about a month to recover from the surgery.
It's been 2 years and I've had no problems since. No special diet or anything.
