    go to the GP amethyst that (sorry) sounds like gallstones.
    Does it feel like you've been winded (like someone hit you in the stomach)?

    If it's under your ribs and in your back on the right hand side, I'm no doctor, but I'd be pretty sure that it'd be gallstones! Have you taken painkillers?

    Do you mean for an op? If that's what you mean I think they can use a sonic wave thing to break them up (I'll let you know as soon as I've seen my surgeon), you don't need to sleep for that I don't think.

    Hello lovey!

    I would go and see your GP. Gallstones are really common in women who are overweight, who have been pregnant or who have been dieting ( every woman I know then! :) ) most people don't know they have them - until they hurt! I didn't know I had them until my last C section when they had to move my gall bladder out of the way and it sort of jangled them. Hurt like hell for a few days!

    Don't be scared that having gallstones means surgery - they might leave you alone once you're off CD. I would go and get some advice and some painkillers though. The only thing I would say is that gallstones can lead to another disease which is serious - can't remember the word but it starts with a c - and the first sign of that is where you turn yellow, like jaundice. It's where one of the pesky little blighters blocks a bile duct. Quite rare though.

    XXX The trials of being a woman, eh?!!? :D

    The pain my go away but they never will I'm afraid unless you have them dealt with. Like Chebs said it can lead to more serious health problems if you're not careful so it's better to deal with them now. Talk to your GP and they should be able to tell you your options better than we can.
