- Q: I had my son 4wks & 4days ago. Last night I had severe pain in my upper right side abdomen area through my back and right shoulder. I ended up going to the ER and the told me I have gallbladder stones and for some reason pregnant women get them. Also I have lost 26lbs after my son was born. So anyway they told me that the best option for me would be to get it removed. I just had a C-Section last month. I am nervous about the whole thing. I did read that the surgery isn’t so bad but what will happen to my body with out my gallbladder? If we don’t need it then why were we born with it? If anyone out there has had theirs removed, how are you doing? Did you get sick? Did you get fat or lose weight? What happened to your health and body?
- A: my cousin had hers removed a few years ago. the only thing different now is about 5-10 mins after we eat it has already run through her body and she has to go to the bathroom, other then that she was absolutely fine. of course after every surgery the next few days there is the possibility of the meds making you sick and you are being cut open so you will be a little sore as your body adjusts to the new open space and heals but after a bit you won’t ever rember it. it’s not to bad at all, and trust me if it was we would know my cousin is a drama queen and makes every ache open to the world for sympathy
- Any Mommies out there experiencing gallbladder problems after pregnancy? Or from birth control pills?
- Q: Since having my son I get really bad gallbladder attacks after eating grease.I had an ultrasound done of all my internal organs (liver, pancreas, gallbladder, uterus, etc.) and the only thing that showed up ‘abnormal’ was an inflamed tube to my gallbladder (gallbladder duct).This all happened after I had my son in July of 2007.The problem is, I’m *still* having the nausea (extreme nausea!) after I eat a greasy meal.The ultrasound showed that I didn’t have any gallstones, so I am not going to lose my gallbladder .. but I have to ‘avoid greasy food’ to avoid any gallbladder attacks.My problem is that I LOVE greasy food! When I go a couple days without grease, I forget how sick it makes me, and I go ahead and have a cheeseburger and fries.(and when I say ‘sick’ I mean EXTREME nausea. I have never thrown up or had diarrhea, it’s just EXTREME nausea that is impossible to get rid of. I was given a prescription from my Doctor for an anti-nausea, but now those don’t even work. I just feel incredibly sick to my stomach and even dizzy from the nausea. Nothing I can eat or drink relieves the weak feeling in my stomach.)This last ‘gallbladder attack’ has left me nauseous for 3 days. I don’t see myself eating ANYTHING greasy for a while! I am really going to start watching what I eat. I’m just wondering if any other Mothers experienced any gallbladder problems after having a baby? or starting birth control pills? (which I am on, and I was told that could also trigger gallbladder problems ..)I am wondering IF you had a gallbladder problem, did it ever go away WITHOUT having to have your gallbladder removed?IF I stay away from grease for a while, is there a possibility this ‘problem’ will go away?I’ve had these gallbladder attacks for 2 years now, BUT I haven’t given up the grease, I only cut down. I am planning to cut out all fried foods for a while and see if that ‘heals’ my gallbladder? Anyone had any success with a gallbladder that ‘repared’ itself?? – мaяк’s ωifee –
- A: A few weeks after having my daughter I had my first gallbladder attack. I would get nauseous & the attack was so intense we called 911…because I could barely breath and was on the floor in pain.My first attack lasted a hour. I had about 8 more attacks after that… Each attack got longer and stronger than the last. I would literally be dripping sweat all over the place and pale as a ghost. Finally I went to the doctor… once we realized it was not- “heartburn” like we were told, when we called 911. And sure enough I had TONS of gallstones. Because of the severity of my attacks & how often they were starting to come… we opted to have it removed. I had it removed in May, and it was one of the best decision I ever made. They only made small incisions. And I got to go home the same day of the surgery. It turned out to be perfect timing… because I got pregnant the next month… I couldnt imagine going through gall bladder attacks during pregnancy.Since you dont have gallstones… I think the best thing you can do it avoid greasy foods-hard I know. And see how that helps. I was also given pain meds, back when I was having attacks to dull the pain… if thats something youd be interested in.Good Luck, sorry I couldnt be more help.*** Love the pic of french fries,lol 🙂

When I got to the hospital, after they stabalized me and they ran test they told me that I had pancreatitis.This happened two more time afterwards last year.They took my gallbladder out.

- A: First of all Pareantitis is caused by leakage from the bowl otr intestines into the abdominal cavity. It cannot happen any other way. It has to be a perforated bowl from something like diverticulitus. Drinking has nothing to do with this. You should ask for a post operative report. Every procedure MUST have an associated report detailing what caused the problem. If they hesitate then something may have gone wrong. They have to give it to you, that it the law. Find out what really happened to you, you can go from there.
