I was in the hospital over the weekend with severe stomach pains. Its at the very top of my stomach between my ribs and radiates under them on the right side. So they did a sonogram and xrays and i think its called a hydroscan where they see the gallbladder in action. Nothing came up. I mean this pain is like the peak of a contraction! As soon as the dye got to my gallbladder I had pain so severe.
There were no gallstones found on the sonogram though.
I think you need to keep having them check it. My back was hurting sooooo bad when my gallbladder was acting up. I didn't have a temp, or vomiting or any other symptoms, just back pain. The doctors kept acting like it was no big deal. I was in agony. After one ultrasound they said I only had a few gallstones. BUT I went to a different hospital and they did another ultrasound and they saw that my gallbladder was enlarged. When the doctor went in to operate he had full intentions of doing it laparoscopically. He opened me up and it was so bad he had to do it the old fashioned way, with a full incision and everything. I still can't figure out how the first ultrasound tech missed it!!!
