My gallbladder pain keeps getting worse. Diet isn't controlling it anymore. I've been in pain since 11 last night (13 1/2 hours ago!) It's the second super long attach this week. I've been to the ER, they phoned my midwife then gave me Percocet, but it isn't helping much. They did an ultrasound and said I have several gallstones, the largest is 1 inch, and that it won't get better until I have my gallbladder removed. But the ER doc said surgery isn't an option now, it could hurt the baby. So I just have to tough out the pain.
Anyone else have horrible gallstone pain? Is there any other safe medicine to try? I have prescription Percocet to last a few days, then see my midwife. But I'm tempted to call and ask for something stronger if it won't hurt the baby.
