I feel the same way. I have clotting issues. My bothers me sometimes. I look up the food we should eat and those we should avoid. So far so good but lots of other problems buring in the fire. Aloha

I am not a Doctor so I will just talk about my gall bladder I suffered from severe PAIN due to gall stones there is no way in my opinion to get rid of them but to have the bladder removed I tried various so called remedies they didn't work you have to have faith in your consultant surgeon they will have all your medical history have faith you will I'm sure be surprised how well you will feel after they are very ,very skilled people

I had mine removed 2 years ago and it is my biggest regret. I too had occasional severe attacks but had learned to manage the condition with diet and had been pain free for 6 months. Despite this I was still advised by the surgeon to have the gallbladder removed which I unfortunately did, believing that he knew best. Since then I have suffered with chronic gastritis and duodenitis which is much more debilitating and lifestyle restricting than occasional, albeit painful, gallbladder attacks. My advice - if you are not in pain then don't do it.

Hi,

Welcome to the forum.

The British Liver Trust have a publication on gallstones which does detail surgical treatments;

britishlivertrust.org.uk/wp...

Your specialist should be able to answer any worries or concerns you have regarding the operation.

Best wishes

Rebecca

that is a really good article. i had/have mirrizis syndrome and would have liked to have seen something on that, caused by my one 3cm gallstone. i had to have an hepticojejunoscopy. its very difficult to find any information for a lay person on this condition, i am still left wondering about all this and its very difficult to find others to ask for information,,i was wide awake during the whole of the ERCP as the sleeping medication did not work for me. it lasted an hour and i had to have a stent placed in my bile duct. its just 6 months since i had the operation and i still have questions and am going back to see the surgeon who brilliantly operated on me. i do feel a lot better but still have some pain and i dont know if its scar tissue or what. thanks for the article.

Small gall Bladder stones may pass through the bile duct and dormant stone will not cause pain.Surgery is indicated if there are multiple big stones .Laparoscopic surgery is safe

I have heard they can break them up with meds takes long time though or they remove them through a probe but is dangerous I too have them but with portal hypertension it's too dangerous to remove gallbladder they told me when they act up they need to remove gallbladder and give me a liver transplant at same time otherwise I would most likely bleed out

I had my gall bladder removed and it's the worse thing I ever did the surgeon nicked my bile duct causing a injury which the leak was fixed but the blood flow to half my liver stopped which it then started to die which in Jan 14 I had half my dieing liver removed and reconstruction I'v had bad luck after bad luck now I'm on the transplant list just want u to be aware of the risks as I never in a million years that this would happen from gall bladder removal xx

Hi All, It seems that as I have always thought that we are all different, what works well for one person will cause another problems. So far a change in diet is helping but I still have a nagging ache in my lower right loin area. Will be seeing a specialist next week so keeping my fingers crossed I will get some where with a diagnosis. Try to keep well everyone.

Hi, If you have a gall stone causing the problem it may be possible to use ultrasound to break it up. Have you had a scan yet, they show gall stones up very well, even an ultrasound scan will do the job. Best of luck and stay well. Try going for a low fat diet, that often helps.
