gallstoneI am a 54 y/o female with a 1cm gallstone that is causing 1) gnawing/gripping pain in the upper right quadrant of my back near the scapula that feels like a hot poker is being pushed through my back to the front of my chest, 2) stomach and intestinal gas pains, 3) constipation, 4) difficulty breathing and 5) anxiety/panic attacks as a result of my inability to breathe. Have had this problem for many months, but the pain is becoming unbearable. During the severe attacks, I drink hot drinks and take gas-x to alleviate gas by belching. I also take ibuprofen for the stabbing gallbladder pain (which helps a little) and prescription meds to deal with the anxiety and panic attacks. I have been taking ursodiol bile salts for a year now to try to dissolve the stone. One stone dissolved, but the second one hasn't changed in size.
I crave sweets (especially chocolate), bread, cheese and spicy foods like chicken wings. Unfortunately, most of these foods increase the problem.
Need to find some way to dissolve this stone to prevent the need for gallbladder surgery/removal.
