I met with a surgeon this afternoon for gallbladder removal. I have anywhere from light colored soft stools to orange floating diarrhea to yellow diarrhea - but never 100% formed stools for the past few months. I have nausea every morning which seems to cause a loss of appetite for the rest of the day. I know I get hungry, but nothing ever sounds good to me - I pretty much each rice. I have very very mild upper right side discomfort - no where near pain. I have a 98% ejection fraction, no stones, liver/pancreas fine. No inflammation markers and no blood in stool. The surgeon said that the "overactive" gallbladder research has been discredited and isn't a reason to take the GB out. He still will and I'm tentatively schedule for next Thursday, but he is only 50% sure that this will help. I'm at a loss. I feel like I need to get this thing out but I don't want to get it out if it's not the problem. Before this, I've been 100% normal and I'm petrified I will come out worse than when I go in. Any suggestions? If you want more of my saga, I've posted a few other discussions in this group.
