So I had my gall bladder removed 4.5 years ago and have had no pain ever since. I was careful with my diet for a while but slowly let things slip and never had a problem. I have a fairly healthy diet anyway. Before my gall bladder removal anything was setting off an attack. One night I had half a cup of herbal tea and had a bad attack. After the surgery, my surgeon said the gall stones were like gravel, that's why I was having attacks so often. Not sure if any of that is relevant now.
Anyways, fast forward 4.5 years and I have the pain again. It's lasted around 6 hours so far, coming and going, panadol eased it for about an hour. It isn't as intense but still uncomfortable. I couldn't eat dinner and feel a bit queezy. Before it started I hadn't eaten anything that bad.
Any idea what could be going on??

The pain has gone now after a big sleep. Still would like to know if it's happened to anyone else and what it was?

I had an attack a out 1.5 years after removal, I ended up in emergency. It was the night after my wedding day, I'd had migraines and had taken a few doses of panedine forte over the weekend. The Dr in emergency after xrays said it was likely triggered by the codeine as it slows digestion and can cause bile sludge (eww) which similarly get stuck going through the bile duct. I've never had codeine since nor an attack... touch wood!

Hope your ultrasound and procedure go ok and turn out to be nothing. Let me know so I can keep it in mind if I get the pain again

You could still have a stone stuck in your bile duct. You'd need an MRI to confirm, in bad cases where the gallbladder is full of stones it's not uncommon. I'd go to the GP and get a referral for a specialist.
