Last year I had an ultrasound that showed "sludge" in my gallbladder. I also had a HIDA scan that showed a slow gallbladder but it wasn't to the point that they were concerned about it. Fast forward to this year and I have had a repeat ultrasound that shows "multiple stones". They've asked me if I want my gallbladder out. I do not have the "typical" gallbladder pain. I don't have the right sided pain or anything like that. What I do have is occasional heartburn that nothing helps except for Aloe Vera juice. I also get terrible gas and bloating. The gas and bloating are my biggest issue. It causes a lot of discomfort. I've suffered with the gas and bloating for years but it has gotten a bit worse in the last year. I also have episodes of fatigue where I just have to lie down. Also, my stool sometimes has yellow in it. Does this sound like my gallbladder and if so will having the surgery help or make things worse? I am terrified of surgery. I've never had general anesthesia before.
