gaul stones

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi everyone!  hope someone can help!  after being very poorly, and in lots of pain for over 2 years, my doc sent me for various tests last week. they included an endoscopy and an ultra sound scan, as she thought i had a hiatus hernia.  the endoscopy was clear, but the ultra sound showed that i have quite a number of gaul stones.  I have been advised to have the gaul bladder removed as even if they manage to disolve the stones, they can return.  in the meantime, can anyone advise me what to eat and drink, to help with the symtoms?  also, do you feel much better after the gaul bladder has been removed, and can you eat normally afterwards?

    Hi Valerie, you are talking about gallstones and this site has a very useful leaflet

    https://patient.info/health/gallstones-leaflet

    Avoiding fatty foods will help you a lot.  You can live without a gallbladder but will need to adjust your diet.  And you will feel a lot better.

    hi valerie . ater gall bladder removal your best to avoid fatty food , in my case i started to suffer a lot of discomfort and bloating several years after the operation , due to not watching what i was eating, so ended up with a small amount of fat in my liver, i am now on a low fat diet and also a liver detox , so i am now so much better for it , and have bags more energy .
