Dec 6, 2012 · Gallstones in Digestive Health

I had gallstones and ignored the pain for a long time and even thought it was acid reflux. I had to have emergency surgery laparoscopically I had gotten an infection and my gallbladder was inflamed, urine brown, severe pain. I later – a month later got pancreatitis because there was still blockage in the common bile duct which had to be removed. The pain of the pancreatitis was worse than the gallbladder. My advice is to get surgery before your problem gets severe or moves to pancreatitis as the only thing they can do for it is have you stop eating and flushing your body with IV fluids.
