Yes I still have my gall bladder and it has ached for a few days but is worse today

Dr. David :

it could be a gall bladder stone you are passing.

Dr. David :

you should go to the local A&E and get an ultrasound of your gall bladder to see if it is inflamed.

Dr. David :

if you press under your right lower ribs and it is tender, it could be a sign of inflamed gall bladder.

sometimes eating more fatty foods can worsen gall bladder inflammation.
