gall bladder malfunction
In October, I found out my gall bladder is only functioning 27%. I do not have stones.  Up until last week I was not having any symptoms, therefore, did not think surgery was the answer.  I had what seemed like heartburn, and now occaisionaly feel full easily.  My husband and I would like to try to have a baby.  My primary care physician said it is a roll of the dice if my gall bladder will get worse during pregnancy.  Should I have surgery before trying to get pregnant?

Honestly....I would have it out now before TTC...It's usually not a big deal, they do it laprascopically as long as there are no other issues...You'll have anywhere from 1-4 small incisions on your abdomen......Pain is generally easily controlled with oral narcotics....That's my personal opinion....I just think that it would be easier to deal with it now and not worry about a flare up during pregnancy.....
