    Try meal replacement drinks; your doctor may be able to prescribe them. My mum got them from her doctor; we live in the UK.

      What about a dietician? You might be able to get some advice there on easily digestible foods. Maybe even try liquidizing vegetables and fruit to build you up.When my mum went off solid food, a liquid diet helped her to put on weight. Milk helped her a lot. It is important to get decent nourishment to speed up your recovery. 'it will take time' is not a helpful response. Keep seeing different doctors because you may find one that will give you some practical tips to help your appetite. Sometimes you have to see several.. If you keep hearing 'it will take time', tell your doctor that you are not satisfied and insist on them actually doing something for you. You are getting fobbed off.

      Good luck with your move and a change of doctor. Merry Christmas to you too.

    Does sound horrible

    I am hoping on getting mine taken out soon as it's become very painful

    I think these things do take time, I find carbs are the best and bread are just a nightmare in general

    But you could have died, the Peak District is lovely so hopefully this helps you

    Was it pretty quick the surgery when you were admitted?

    Mine wasn't too bad, no stones but much worse and now making all my liver levels go up

    Merry Xmas anyway

      Hi Stevie, so you have gallbladder problems but no stones? what are your symptoms? i still have mine i want to have it remove but my PNP doesn't really suggest to have it removed unless i really experience a very, very painful attack..which bums me out a bit. I've had elevated liver enzymes for several months and then went back to normal. which levels are up for yours?

      Apologies for the late reply;

      • Very painful attacks
      • Upper right quadrant stabbing
      • No fast food
      • Enzymes only 50 + 60
      • Nothing on Ultrasound
