Just want to share my story as reading other peoples has really helped me.
I have been getting the courage up to have gallbladder removal op for 5 months now!! having had stones fr 2 whole years with little problems decided not to get op as wasnt affecting my life. (apart from when pregnant and i first found i had them. the pain back then was pretty bad).
WELL...! these last months have been so painful with a gallbladder attack most weeks. and last five weeks have given me a huge wake up call. i ended up in A&E when i had pains every day fr a week from the moment i woke up to the moment i went to bed, I couldnt eat the plainest of foods an apple a bowl of rice a drink of water were all kicking the pains off. In a&e they admitted me with nil by mouth and after scan and xray was told still had the gallstones but also had got pancreatitis due to these nasty little stones.
thankfully the pancreatitis was mild and i was allowed home in a week but having been in hosp and seeing the amount of people on my ward in with gallstone complications it has made me make the brave decision to get the op. the pain with pancreatitis was not worth the doubts i have had over the op as scared as iam!! i cant believe i have been putting this off fr two whole years without realising the compliications gallstones can cause.
wish me luck !! keep u all posted. reading ppl on here that have had the op and havnt looked back has made me feel positive. (nervous but got to be done now!)
