I just posted about my gb surgery. I too had constant pain
and broke my natural medicine rules to keep ibuprofen under
the tongue constantly to take the edge off(couldn't digest).
I did not have cancer. My ultrasound did not pick up the
stones in the common duct, but they were there. The tiredness
increased for me as the jaundice set in ever so slowly until
one day I was yellow everywhere. I am very tough and don't
give up easily. Just be prudent, and don't get caught with
a weekend emergency operation. Get informed about local surgeons
while you pursue every natural alternative. A blood test might
help to see if your liver enzyme livers are up/get a bilirubin
count. Let me know.
