Last night, I woke up with the worst chest and back pain and I couldn't get comfortable. It felt like a vice around my ribcage and the worst indigestion ever. Finally after struggling with what to do, we decided to call an ambulance and Jay would stay with the boys. SOooooo, Off I go thinking I was having a heart attack and the pain finally eases 5 min. before I get to the hospital--after having it over 2 hours (but I did take a Percocet from the C Section thinking in the beginning I was having a muscle spasm). After blood tests and a CT Scan of my chest, they find out I may have a gall stone. Some stuff was goofed up with my liver and pancreatic enzymes so now I go 12/4 to get an ultrasound to find out. A long time to wait but with the holidays.....YUCK! This was so hard with the boys. We couldn't figure out what to do--take Troy to Mom's and take Will with us, wait for someone to come to us...It was nuts! Luckily, Jay stayed and is bringing them to Moms and me and mom are going to switch off taking naps since we were both up all night.
I was going to say that it was probably gall stones. I had a similar episode happen when Abby was about 3 months old. Only thing was that I was in the nursery and DF was out cold, I couldn't breathe so I couldn't yell at DF . . . seriously thought I was dying.
I kept putting off getting my GB taken out until finally the surgeon was like "you're doing this Friday!" (that was Labor Day weekend, see how long I put it off?) I feel much better now. I hope you get it taken care of soon.
