Management Of Infections In The Gallbladder That Does Not Heal?
I want to ask, I have been suffering from bile infection for 1 year so far I have been taking pain relievers. but why doesn’t it get better even I feel worse every time I try to stop taking medicine. I went to the specialist doctor inside and did an ultrasound. they say this is nothing serious. But more and more the pain spread to the spine. Please advise. Thank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Bile infection is not always able to be treated with pain medication alone. This infection can occur due to a blockage in the bile duct, a buildup of stones, tumors, as well as bacterial growth. That is why sometimes antibiotics are also needed, in fact it is not uncommon to also need surgery.
So in your case, chances are you already need surgery, or if your doctor is right in saying there is no abnormality in your bile, it means the cause of the pain is not from bile infection, but maybe from pinched nerves, kidney stones, or other abnormalities. We suggest that you try consulting another internal medicine doctor to get a second opinion regarding your illness. It is your right as a patient to know the opinions of other doctors. That way, if the second doctor apparently recommends surgery, it means that the steps you should take. Then if it turns out the second doctor also agreed that there are no abnormalities, you may ask where you should check yourself next in his opinion, such as for example to a neurologist or spine doctor. The handling that you will receive later depends on the results of the inspection.
In the meantime, keep taking your medication regularly as recommended, try to warm compress the painful part, maintain your ideal body weight, eat less oily foods and check yourself immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
