I to have been suffering with back pain for three years and was recently dignosed with gall stones at last i thought i would be free of pain. I had my gall bladder out on 2/2/07 after being on pethidine for the pain off work for 6 months. I thought at long last i was going to get back to normal but unfortunately i still suffer with right side back pain and have to take pain killers every day and have now developed reflux i feel totally cheesed off!!!!!!!
