I had an 8 hr. attack with stone lodged somewhere,couldn't tell exactly where. I hurt from the middle of my back to my chest, under my right rib, under my shoulder blade. I was so sore on my right side I couldn't bear to touch it, couldn't lay or sit in any comfortable position. After stone finally moved I fell into an exhausted sleep but my back still hurts. How long before this should get better?
If I have my gallbladder removed should this stop the stones from lodging in the hepatic duct? Or could I still suffer this horrible pain after removal of gallbladder?
