so i have gall stones and need to get my gall bladder removed (on waiting list for surgery) because i keep having gall bladder attacks and they have become more frequent since pregnancy and giving birth.
any way when i have the attacks i try to take panadol and tramadol and other pain meds (not at the same time of course) to relieve the pain but it does NOT work at all and takes hours sometimess even days for the pain to go away and in the meantime i have to look after dd which is impossible cos i cant even look after myself when i get the pain.
i have vomited a few times before when i felt nautious when the pain ccomes on and i have noticed almoost instant relief (5mins or so)
so here is my question.
what is better to do. be in pain for any given time and struggle to do anything and care for the baby
or vomit on cue and be relieved from pain after 5 mins and go back to normal.
dd had a shocking night last night and i was up til 4am so when the pain came on i decided to make myself vomit because dh had to get up for work at 6 so he could not help me out if i needed him too.
am i doing the wrong thing.
