Patient :I spent last night in the ER with severe right side abdominal pain. after altrasound and blood work, they tell me I have a tiny gallstone. they sent me home the same way I arrived in pain. with a prescription of Bentyl and pantoprozole and told me i would pass the stone in my stool. I understand the Bentyl but after reading side effects of pantoprozole... possible gallbladder inflammation I found that odd. Sending me home in the same amount of pain is odd to. Wondering if this is correct treatment
