I'm due to have my gallbladder removed soon and I know all the pros and cons from researching on here and other sites, plus I worked in health and research a few years. If it was just that I had a classic case of gallbladder attacks, I would not be questioning at all.
As my scans showed other conditions which can cause exactly the same symptoms as those thought to be gallbladder AND my 'gallbladder' symptoms are not typical (left sided, all the time & not sudden attacks etc etc) I'm just wondering whether I should have got a second opinion?
The surgeon did not really give me the defintive answers I needed and the other conditions are being investigated at later dates. However, I don't want to lose my place on the surgery list as I'm really unwell and would struggle to wait months more if I started over and the Gb is at fault.
Anyone here had a private 2nd opinion? I know doctors cannot predict how well patients will do after surgery, I just need to know that nothing is being misdiagnosed as this happened to me before a previous surgery.
