Hi there I have been suffering with Pain on my Left side near my stomach area and side and when I first went to Doc's In August 07 they diagnosed me with Stomach acid and gave me Ranitidine and sent me away. anyway after another severe attack of pain in the same area went back to the docs and they changed meds to Lansaprazole and again sent me away. Had constant problems with pains and was eventually sent for a scan in Dec 07 where they found one large gallstone. Sometimes I will have severe pain that will last several hours. Most days though I am aware of the pain even though bearable with paracetamol etc, is anyone else in pain pretty much everyday and is anyone suffering pain on the left side instead of the right?
Sorry to ramble just worried that there is something else wrong and just want a proper diagnosis now so that we can move forward and get it sorted. Got a surgeon appt on the 26th FEb so should hopefully no more.
