I've been having some health issues for a month for a month or so now. First, I had a bacterial infection in my intestinal tract and was in the hospital for 4 days. After that I kept having discomfort on my right side about mid abdomen and near my navel. They did a CT scan to check my appendix and found nothing. I still have discomfort, nausea, diarrhea off and on, and back pain going from my side up to my shoulder blade. The doctor really believes it's my gallbladder, but we know I don't have stones,probably just a bad gallbladder.
Right now I'm feeling ok and want to avoid the hydascan because the dye has caused me yo have a rapid heartbeat in the past. The doctor says as long as I can handle it, it will be ok to take a break and let my body rest.
Has anyone suffered from gallbladder issues and opted nit to have the surgery? Did a low fat or non greasy food diet help? What have you done to deal with the issue without surgery?
