I had my gallbladder removed in 2010. Put off going to Dr. for 4 days with excrutiating back, rib, and upper abdominal pain, then, Fri. I went to E.R. They said my liver enzymes were very high. My b.p was 95/42, which happens sometimes with me, and at first the ER doctor said Hepatitis. Then he said I had a 3.8mm gallstone in my bile duct and had to get the test where they put the camera down your throat and pull the stone out. Transferred me to another hospital via ambulance, where they infiltrated my vein and the morphine in my IV felt like they had injected me with molten lava. I got seriously irate. My arm and hand looked like a balloon. I wanted a cigarette, coffee, and water, and with the morphine in my skin instead of in my vein, I got no pain relief, and they said they couldn't give me any more morphine, so I left. That was Sunday morning, about 5:30.
But, also, I have been bleeding severely for 3 weeks, now: female bleeding. Am due to get an ultrasound and possible DNC on April 3rd, and scoliosis surgery to fuse 9 vertebrae on April 6th, another reason I didn't want to be at that hospital. I wanted to go to the one where my scoliosis docs work because I wanted to keep them updated. I don't want to miss my surgery, there, or I may not be able to walk much longer.
Can this stone kill me? It really hurts bad, especially after I eat. I'm no doubt going to be a pariah to the medical community because of my bad reaction on Morphine. Maybe no doctor will want to do that procedure since I bolted, but how was I supposed to know morphine would make me so crazy? It didn't really stop the pain from my attack, it just made me mean as a two-headed rattlesnake. My other question is could the gallstone in question cause the heavy bleeding? Pap came back okay. Shoot! One more question while I'm on a roll. Is it possible that it's not my scoliosis crippling me, but this giant stone?
