“Is this a bile leak?
I had my gall bladder removed on Feb. 23rd of this year. I did great for the first 8 days. On the 9th day I started developing abdominal pain in the upper right quadrant, nausea and diahrrea. I went back to the surgeon and he told me that it was probably nothing, but ordered an abdominal ultrasound. It showed nothing. I have been to the ER twice, had an abdominal CT and told that I needed a psych consultation for stress. The pain is very real, and continues to get worse, and they are telling me I am crazy. This is the status of our healthcare system. No one wants to believe that a silled surgeon could make a mistake. I hope I don’t die from his mistake.”
