get checked out by a dr to keep an eye on things - i had my gallbladder removed when i was 35. i knew my problem was gallstones and had a few attacks i could handle (just a bit tired at work the next day) then i got really sick one day at work and had to go home early on a saturday - by the time i got to see a dr on the monday i was yellow!! by the time i got my surgery (7 months later following 3 lots of ERCP) my gall bladder was showing signs of gangrene and had adheared to my liver and duedunum (sp) and was spilling stones into my abdominal cavity .. i had an open conversion and had my apendix removed as the infection was spreading through my abdominal cavity and i had peritonitis (the day of surgery i felt fine). my consaultant told me i was very lucky as had i been left a few days longer my condidtion would have been life threatening!!
sorry i dont mean to worry you - but just let the medical proffesionals keep an eye on you - while gallstones can be inconvienient and uncomfortable on occasion they can become life threatening.
I never had my gallstones removed when I was 40, but somehow they just never bothered me in any serious way for 10 years! Now, this is the most prolonged feeling of pain and discomfort, but I'm skeptical about having my gallstones removed because of the side effects. I would rather flush them out naturally. What do you think?
i dont know about flushes - by the time i saw a dr. gallbladder flush was not the way forward - i already had an obstruction ... when i looked up gallbladder problems on the internet i came to sites on flushes but most of them contraindite flushes as they can cause further problems when you are obstructed!!
I have gallbladder attacks is been a year now. They diagnose it as deoudenal ulcer. I did abnominal ultrasound but nothing has seen to it. I've been on treatment of ulcer since April 2014 but nothing has changed rather being worse. What should I do? I need help please.
