I have had 3 gallbladder attacks within the past 3 months. These were the only attacks I've had ever. The 1st on happen after I ate yogurt. I haven't had an attack in the month of October. I am scheduled to have gallbladder surgery on November 7. Is it too soon to have the surgery? Should I wait it out to see if the attacks continue? Please help!!!!!

    Hi I would suggest that if they think it is bad enough to remove you gallbladder I would do it. I had to have mine removed three years ago after dealing with it for 3 year. It got to the pony I couldn't even take a sip I water with out hurting and throwing up. By the time I got to the emergency room and they finnaly found out that it was my galbladder my kindeys were shutting down and the bike duct that transferred the stones had scared shut. They likely good of actual ccomplications are relatively low. It took me a month or two to fully recover because of how bad I was before it as Well as they had to clean the bile duct out as well. I would also suggest being careful about what you eat.
