I'm female, aged 62. Had gastric bypass 5 years ago and fleur de lys abdominoplasty 2 years ago to remove excess fat. Last 12 months liver function bloods have been slowly rising. Gallstones, initially small now 23mm, at least 3 plus some smaller ones. Having further ultrasound tomorrow to see if any bigger. The question is whether to have them removed or not. Radiologist 12 months ago suggested seeing a surgeon as better to have removed by specialist surgeon due to scarring and adhesions and changed anatomy due to bypass rather than wait until it becomes an emergency. But GP said leave alone. Get stomach pains but usually styles with heat pack. 23mm stones seem large to me and likely to get stuck. Does anyone have any advice , especially if they're even larger tomorrow?!
