Meds and sups when gallblader removed

I had my gallbalder removed a few years ago and have had pain ever since. I did have a scan which showed fatty liver but I was not offered any advice or treatment. In fact I was treated as if I was at fault. Recently through the interne I have found outt that my fatty liver and gallblader problems are part of autoimmune illness and that I should have been offered medication.

So, I'm in my sixties, female, vegetarian overweight. What is the best course of action for me?

  • I would give up fat. I would at least be out walking everyday as long as I could. Anyway its working for me. My doctors are quite impressed.

  • Hi beaton,

    There are many causes for pain after surgery, especially if it has been going on for this long.  I would encourage you to have this checked out by a doctor to see what is going on.  You should not have to live in pain.  If they did a scan but nothing else, then they are not doing their job.  I would contact that doctor or switch to another doctor to move your care forward.

    The main treatment for fatty liver disease is a healthy diet and weight loss.  I have fatty liver disease, too.  Here are some links to information:

    If you suspect that your liver and gallbladder problems are part of an autoimmune illness, then this should be confirmed by a doctor so that you can get the treatment you need.  I have PBC, an autoimmune liver disease, and I fell so much better after starting Ursodiol medication.  If you can request a copy of your blood test results and a copy of your scan report, we might be able to help you interpret them.

    Let us know if we can help you out in any way.  There are lots of us here with liver disease of many forms, and most are willing to offer advice and/or share their experiences.

  • Thank you Chynablue, Such a positive responce. I shall take this further with my local surgery.
