Its been a long road to get here, pain started in Oct 2016, ovarian cyst found and since removed in July 17. During scans a 6mm polyp found but no stones, had the HIDA Scan and the drink made me instantly feel very sick and results showed that my gallbladder wasn't functioning normally and referred to surgeons for consideration of surgery.
I met with the surgeon in Oct 17 and he explained that my gallbladder isn't working properly, not all the time but sometimes it does work, hence why I feel 'off' on occasion. Also he went on to explain about the bile duct having something wrong with it and so in short if I had surgery it 'may not cure me' After having surgery only months before I declined surgery and i've already got a follow up appoint for next Oct.
Since the appoint i've 'tried' to cut out fats and make sensible decisions but in Dec i've had 3 really bad weekends of feeling sick after eating within 15-20 mins after. I get instantly tired and generally feel unwell. Then Christmas came and I took my eye off the ball, eat and drank too much and one day overdid the cheese and full fat sausages. I was violently sick with diarrhoea and it really scared me.
I don't know anything other than in my letter it says I have dysmotility, I don't know the percentage the gallbladder doesn't work or anything. I've been taking apple cider vinegar to try and help the acid feeling and it does help with the sick feeling.
Should I have researched more or asked more questions before declining surgery? Is there anything other surgery I can try? At the moment i've had NO dairy for 3 days since being sick.
