I had an ultrasound done on my gallbladder on Tuesday, they said my doctor should have the results by Friday at the latest... I can't stand this pain anymore, I can barely drink water at this point. Should I call the doctor's office and see if they got the results back yet? Or should I wait until tomorrow to hear back from them?

Update: I called earlier today. They confirmed gallstones, and now I have a followup in the morning.

Update 2: I went in this morning and saw the surgeon. Unfortunately the soonest they can get me in is the 28th.. Hopefully I can last that long, I should be able to. Anyway, I have 6 large gallstones. The surgeon was almost admiring my gallstones, it was kind of amusing. He was kind of excited about how big they were! My husband of course wanted me to keep them but the surgeon said they don't do that anymore (thank God!).

If I were still in pain and it seems to be getting worse, I'd call and let them know and ask if they've gotten anything back yet.

I just had my gallbladder out in April.  I had the ultra sound done from the family doctor and they told me the results over the phone.  Gave me a name and # of the surgeon to call.  I called and made an appointment right away. 

Both doctors offices told me if the pain got to much to bear go straight to the emergency room.  The surgeon would be called and see me in the hospital to take it out right away.  

I was ok and able to handle the pain for 3 weeks until they scheduled the operation.  

If you are in that much pain go to the emergency room don't wait.
