Post cholecystectomy syndrome
I was sick with gallbladder pain and sickness from January until June this year. I had seen at least 12 different doctors. Finally a surgeon in a no name hospital in podunk VT knew what I had was hyperkenetic biliary dyskinesia. I stopped eating almost all foods in April. I lost over 30 pounds in 2 months. I am about 7 weeks post cholecystectomy. My pain started to be alleviated and I was able to start eating again for maybe about a week before I started feeling awful again. I'm back to not being able to eat anything and stabbing, gnawing pain in my right shoulder, right ribs/abdomen, under my sternum, now on the right side of my back. I am losing more weight again. I've seen almost all of the gastroenterologists in my area. Dartmouth is giving me such a hard time and will not help. I am waiting to hear from a 4th gastroenterologist that is an hour away from me to see when they can get me in to see me. I think the next step is an ERCP. I do not want to be on pain pills, or any pills for that matter if I can help it. I just want to be able to eat again. My quality of life is significantly diminished as well as my mental health at this point. I am very very very scared and just don't know what to do anymore.
