    Try not to be concérned .. The stones could have gone by them selves and they are airing on the side of caution.

    My pain subsided a couple of weeks before my op in december but i was eating a véy bland diet because of the pain i had been getting.

    Try not to worry and speak to your gp about your concerns xx good luck and hope all goes well x

    Hello-

    So sorry about your difficulty. It could be your gall bladder still is not working properly, even if there are no more stones.  I am guessing they did a HIDA scan on it?  I did not have stones, yet mine was only functioning at 22% when I had it removed due to pain and nausea.

    I am sorry you lost your husband.  I will be remembering you in prayer as you face this challenge ahead.

    Pulling for you -

    Jonna

    You could have passed the stones but more will form so they advice to remove it once it becomes diseased. I didn't have the op because they couldn't see any stones and when I finally did due to immense pain every day they said the stones wouldn't stop coming out and there were over 70!!

    Good luck with your op x
