sorry long post coming up!
I was diagnosed around 5 years ago as being hypothyroid, I've been on T4 only replacement since and never had any symptoms of gallstones untill after going on the T4. It started with what I thought was lactose intolerance and IBS symptoms but I knew it wasn't IBS. After about 2 years of feeling awful my old surgery basically said that the pain from the IBS and acid reflux was all in my head and tried repeatedly to prescribe me antidepressants!! I was furious! I wasn't depressed just worried about my health! So a year after this I moved house and gp surgery too thankfully. Early last year I started having absolutely horrific pain in my right side and across the middle of my stomach. I couldn't move I was in so much pain, sweating, shakes being sick and could barely breath. So went to the new doctors and straight away she said " I bet it's gallstones" booked me in for a scan and he presto I had gallstones! I'm now awaiting surgery after having a nasty infection in the gallbladder just before Christmas. I was wondering if it could be due to my hypothyroidism as I have never eaten a hight fat diet? Also has anybody had there gallbladder out with hypothyroidism and if so did u manage to lose weight after? I'm so worried as I struggle so badly with my weight! Thank u all in advance
