My GP told me when she diagnosed gallstones that it was very unlikely that any surgeon would consider removing my gallbladder because of its close proximity to the liver. I should add that by her own admission my doc knows little about cirrhosis, which is my claim to fame on here!
However, recently I've read a couple of posts from the Liver Trust in which they discuss gallbladder problems and surgery, with no mention of any associated risk to the liver (apart from the usual risk of trauma due to any kind of invasive surgery, I suppose). Should I return to my GP and ask her to refer me for further gallbladder investigation? I'm presently on tenterhooks the whole time in anticipation of another painful attack of cholecystitis. Many thanks for any advice you can give.
