hello, 

I was diagnosed with gallbladder rocks last year. I am 20 years and havent removed it yet because I wanted to get some feed back from people close to my age, what was the best approach? did it affect you alot? it would be very helpful if a few people who have had simillar problems could comment and tell me about their story in order to get to a more educated decision. I have had plenty of medical feed back but Id love to hear it from those who had to go through it.

    I was 19 when I first got a gallbladder attack. It lasted a long time  but eventually  sticking to a low fat diet it settled down. I am now 53 and over the last 25 years have had ME. The last 15 years my health has deteriorated and I have had  so many episodes of acid reflux pain in right side etc but it is only in the  last 4 months that it has even occured to me that it may be my gallbladder playing up. I have been found to have a 1.8cm stone. I am not saying a bad gallbladder has caused all my ill health but I am beginning to wonder. I am waiting for my op to have it removed and I cant wait because life without it cant be any worse than what im currently going through.

      Oh I feel for you Jane.

      After several flare ups I had my gallbladder removed at end of April.

      Still a bit of stomach ache now and again but certainly better than what I was before.

      Hope you get this op soon.

      Are you able to go in on a cancellation?

      This is how I got my op otherwise I would probably still be waiting.

      Take care and keep in touch

      Praying for you

      Love Sarah xx

      Hi Sarah, Thanks so much and I so appreciate your prayers. I had blood tests last week and apparently they are  raised but not sure how or what so Im going to the drs tomorrow to find out. I am on the cancellation list so hoping for  a slot soon but all they say when i ring is that im on the routine list and it cant be hurried! . I will keep posting on here in the hope it may help others struggling smile Thanks once again x
