A fortnight ago I suffered from an attack of mild to severe pain in the chest region just below the heart. Mistaking it to be the beginnings of a heart attach, I rushed to a care centre and asked them to relieve the pain. They conducted tests for the heart but found the same OK. Later I suggested that they check the gall bladder as a couple of family members have had it removed. A sonography later it was confirmed that it was indeed the gall bladder which was inflamed and affecting the whole region. After 7 days in the hospital, the pain subsided and was sent home.
Now they have suggested removal of the gall bladder after my abdomen returns to normal.
My question is, is this surgery necessary, or is there real danger of a repeat in the attack. Your experienced views please!
