I can't believe the delays that you have seen. Discharging a patient after a bout of gallstone pancreatitis without removing the gallbladder first is certainly not standard. I assume that you are under some socialized system of medicine. I would heve planned to have it out within a week of being seen in September. The delay allowed for a serious complication. Pancreatitis is, perhaps, the most lethal complication of gallbladder disease. And as for being symptomatic during pregnancy, there is a large volume of data documenting the safety of gallbladder surgery during pregnancy. Gallbladder and appendix procedures are the most common general surgery procedures done during pregnancy.
