Hope it gans well Nees. Spent about a minute trying to think of a pun then realised I'm a bit of a failure in that respect.

Not an abscess thankfully, swollen tissue under tooth with infection so just on antibiotics to clear it out.

I'd suggest joining book club to give you something to do while you recover.  Our current selection might interest you.

So had another gallbladder attack at the weekend and ended up in the emergency. Meeting a surgeon soon to plan date for it's removal. About f***ing time, worst pain I've ever felt in these 5 or 6 gallbladder attacks I've had the past 18 months or so.

Having gallbladder taken out tomorrow morning and bricking it a bit as i've never had surgery under general anaesthetic before. I never got to the stage of having severe attacks like you're describing there, but first felt the discomfort after eating some bbq chicken with skin on it. Stayed with me for a week before I got it checked out. Ultrasound confirmed 1 small gallstone and a small benign polyp as well. I had 2nd and 3rd and 4th opinions and it was unanimously recommended that I get the gb removed entirely to avoid risk of tiny stone moving into the ducts and causing further complications, as well as getting rid of the polyp.

Not at all fussed about pain or recovery, but I can't help feeling this anxiety about my body being able to handle it all. Or about the doctors knowing what the hell they're doing.

f*** it.

It's one of the most common surgeries performed, very routine, very low chance of any complications. Had mine out two years go. Don't sweat it too much. :thup:

If you've never had an attack it's best you're getting it out before you do. The pain is incredible; as incapacitating as a swift kick to the balls but this time your balls are inside your abdomen and all you can think about is dying for 30-60 minutes.

General anesthetic is conceptually amazing. You feel awake, then you wake up in a different room none the wiser of anything.

Thanks lads. Going to see the surgeon in a bit to run through tomorrow's procedure and have a look at my pre-op test results. Hopefully talking directly to the man himself as well will help to calm me down further. I've been waiting 3 and a half weeks to do this, and with no symptoms to speak of once the initial discomfort subsided, it's just been a bit of a headfuck.

Been ill, for nearly 3 months now, and have just been prescribed prednisolone, anyone had it before ? The side effects seem quite extensive, and i'm debating whether or not I should actually take it.

If your doctor says you should take it - you should take it.

All done. Piece of cake in the main. CO2 pain afterwards is a b****** but hospital drugs make it so worth it! Should be going home tomorrow hopefully.

:anguish: Been ill for 3 days now. Kind of cold/flu where you ache everywhere and your skin aches/tingles. Chest and throat hurts from coughing. WOke at 6 this morning unable to get back to sleep just lying there. Then slept from about 11-4. Day gone.

I felt a bit rough yesterday driving my wife and newborn son home from hospital. This evening I was back at the hospital, apparently I have a chest infection, a throat infection, an ear infection, a water infection, a fever and blood in my p*ss.

Well that's just brilliant!

This is what I have and it's now been going on for 2 weeks. Lying here coughing non stop and can't sleep yet again. Completely fed up with it now.

Chest infection after having cold for about 3 months. Can't concentrate to read or get into a film or serial so I'll be posting inane crap on here for a bit.
Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

Anyone have any experience with acid reflux? I got diagnosed by a doctor earlier this year whilst in hospital waiting on a brain scan so at the time it wasn't much of a concern for them or me. I didn't respond to the initial medication so had to go to the GP after that course and get something else, which I've been on ever since. I've not really had the problem explained to me though and the GP just keeps telling me it should sort itself out, so I'm kind of in the dark about the whole thing. Some days I'm fine, others it feels like my stomach is on fire and I'm bringing acid up to the point my tongue is white.

Is it something I should ask to see a specialist about? I'm not even sure if there's anything you can do other than the medication I'm on, how long it lasts etc but I was initially led to believe it should have only been a couple of weeks.

What are you taking for it? I get reflux and have a hiatus hernia, and taking Lansoprazole does the trick for me. I sometimes still feel the reflux but it just feels like liquid instead of lava mixed with acid.

Avoiding coffee and booze could also help, but who can be f***ed with that.

I had chronic acid reflux for years and lived off Rennies before I got it sorted.  I tried all sorts of things, changing my diet, fasting, quitting booze, but nothing worked.  Turns out I have a loose sphincter (yeah yeah) at the top of my stomach which means the acid can get up easily into my oesophagus.  They prescribed me Omeprazole (which stops you producing stomach acid) and it changed my life overnight - I only ever have heartburn now if I forget to take it.

They should definitely be looking at the cause if you've had it a while though - did they test you for H. pylori?

Omeprazole is available over the counter now btw, might be worth giving it a go if you're in pain.

Cheers chaps. I'm on 20mg of Omerprazole daily, which has helped a lot but hasn't got rid of the problem. I don't get heartburn thankfully my issue is more nausea and stomach related. Before the omerprazole even just having a can of coke would make me throw up, was living of bread and water for a few weeks :lol: Can smoke, drink and eat pretty much anything now without it making it any worse than it is.

Nah Troll, I didn't get tested for anything so that is something I'll definitely ask about :thup:

If you're still getting acid at 20mg, try upping your dose to 40mg and see if that makes any difference.

Would you say your symptoms are like this?  Important to get it checked, it can lead to an ulcer if it's left untreated, but antibiotics should be enough to clear it up.
