Gallstones

Hi I had surgery for 2 ovarian tumours 2 yrs ago and recently found out that my scans showed small gallstones, which I never knew I had. Since my surgery my upper tummy has never gone down and if I lean over or press on tummy it makes me feel slightly sick, could this be because of gallstones ? I also had a blood test in January and my liver tests came back with abnormal reading but Dr said nothing to worry about and would check again could that also be due to gallstones?

  • Hello xx I hope all is well since your surgery 😘😘😘😘

    My husband had gallstones while waiting for his liver transplant - he did feel sick and he said it was very painful πŸ˜“πŸ˜“πŸ˜“πŸ˜“

    He had several 'sickness' episodes that ??? Stomach bugs or gallstones - where he had actually vomited !!!!

    As he could not have gallbladder removed until transplant he had to grin and bear it πŸ˜“πŸ˜“πŸ˜“πŸ˜“πŸ˜“

    I would definitely persevere with your GP as it can become a problem if you get 'Cholecystitis' you may need urgent hospital/op - I am not sure if it can change liver test results as my brain has gone πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜… and I can't remember xxxxxx

    Hope you sort it out xxxxx

  • Hi, I recently had acute viral hepatitis and was in hospital for nearly a month. My stomach was very swollen and I had a lot of pain and mild nausea... A month home, all liver function back to normal but went to hospital yesterday because the pain is still bad. My Dr explained that when one gets inflamed so does the other so I had swollen thickened gb walls as well as an inflamed liver, and still do. I hope you get sorted soon. All the best.

    This is exactly the same as me.

  • Dear ladyone1

    Gallstones can cause some of the symptoms that you describe and can cause abnormal liver function tests. If you haven't had a repeat liver function test since January then we would advise you to visit your GP and ask for a repeat test. If that comes back with any abnormal readings then your GP should refer you for further testing, such as an ultrasound, to see what is going on.

    Have a look at the information on Gallstones on our website at: britishlivertrust.org.uk/li...

    Please feel free to call the Trust offices on 01425 481320 if you need any further information or have any questions.
