I've been having some achy pain and a gurgling sensation in my gall bladder after I eat. Also I've been feeling blasted and full occasionally. Are these symptoms of an enflamed gallbladder? If so , what is the best treatment? I've read that Apple cyder vinegar and lemon in a glass of warm water is good?

Look forward to some replies...smile

    Hi, I have tried everything natural except a flush ( I have multiple mobile gallstones upto 1.5 cms and too scared of a blockage and unconvinced it does what they say)

    Otherwise, I have tried chanca piedra ( stone breaker tea)

    Foods, 2 naturopaths ( so all the herbs and remedies), digestive enzymes and ox bile ( these help heaps with bloating and gas, liver meds. Nothing has worked.

    My scans still show the same taken several months apart and all symptoms are currently mild, tey are still there. ( nausea, IBS D, bloating, gas, gurgling in stomach, pain after eating caused by gas, reflux and achy brusied rib on right side)

    The food I ate 90% paleo and naturally consumed such as dandelion root tea, kefir, sauerkraut etc.. should of helped me never get gallstones, but I did, a lot of them! It is genetic in my family on mums side and all had removed before 40 ( I am 42 now)

    I saw the surgeon on Tuesday and now awaiting my date and have admited defeat!

    Food wise, I am weird as I can eat chocolate ( only mild rib discomfort) eat pork sausages ( made by our organic butcher, so not much fat), roast lamb, coconut yogurt. However I have found red meat, lamb sausages, dairy, coconut itself, eggs and gluten and nuts cause me huge digestive issues/pain as well as most raw veggies, potatoes and some fruits.

    You have gallstones indeed that's causing all the discomforts you have mentioned. You have to be really gutsy to try the apple cider treatment because it has to be under the supervision of your doctor, which I doubt, will allow you to do this kind of self treatment. It is dangerous to treat yourself because If a stone goes down to your duct and causes blockage, then that would be putting your life in danger. Just leave it to your surgeon and do more research so you know what is going on with your body and the kind of treatment your doctor will do if ever you decide to have your gall bladder remove. it took me a year to proceed with a difficult decision because I do not want to lose my gall bladder, but because of back pain, frequent indigestions and burning sensations, I had no choice but to say yes to the surgeon. It has been a month after the operation and still healing. I am still having

    Pain in my

    Lower abdomen. Hopefully, in time I can fully recover. talk to your family physician if you have concerns. Good luck!

      after 5 weeks of surgery my incisions are healing. I have no more burning feeling after

      Every meal and hardly experiencing indigestions. Still having very mild pain on the right side of the lower abdomen but not like in the beginning. Well because I am still having backmpain and lumbar problem.

      Went to my primary physician and she told me it is another issue not related to my gallbladder. It's like one after another of health issues but at least I know that if I hadn't have It removed then eventually it will be a future health threat. By the way, the back pain is

      Most likely coming from my spine which does not surprise me because of my previous neck surgery or neck fusion done 10 years ago. MRI is the best way to find out if the pain is coming from it accdg to my doctor . Anyway, The gallbladder stone issue is now taken cared of and healing fast. I am absolutely sure you will feel a lot better if ever you decide to have a gallbladder surgery. but if you are not ready then give yourself time. It took me more than five years to make a decision and I could have went ahead with it but because of recent stomach problems, my physician suggested that it is time to part with my gallbladder or suffer multiple health issues. thanks for the reply and I hope that you will be okay.

    I have had issues for 8 years, and more than 30 attacks since 2014. I know it's my GB, but I just can't prove it. I can't prove it because I have no stones, and because my country doesn't believe in HIDA scans. I just had an MRCP, and I prey that will show something.

    I started using Apple C Vinegar back in the beginning of 2016. While I still have tons of issues, excruciating pain during an attack is not one of them anymore. ACV Always takes care of it for me. And the pain is gone after 30 mins. I will still be tender to touch for up to 72 hours, but not in constant pain, which I used to be.

      Thanks for your reply! I'm sorry you're having such a bad timesad it's quite a similar situation for me...I go to my doctor who then refers me for a scan and by the time I get it I don't have gallstones. Ive heard nightmare stories of people being really sick but not being operated on. NHS just don't have the funding....

      A simple ultrasound can detect polyps or stones. I am sorry to hear you have to suffer with the pain when your doctor could have done something to make you feel better. second opinion will not harm and perhaps, a good doctor you can trust can do more tests .I hope your physician is aware of your attacks because it is life threatening if your stones are already blocking the duct. I have heard of apple cider treatment but the downside is, if the stones go down to the duct and cause blockage it is risking your life, I also thought of trying that before the surgery but not courageous enough. I just hope that you will find a better doctor who knows what is going on with you. Don't wait for too long, it is not up to you to prove, but the results of the tests that your doctor will order will be the basis of the facts as a proof of the presence of stones. Don't give up if pain persists. My best of

      Luck to your health and there's no need to suffer if something can be done to feel normal again.

    Hi all, sorry to read of everyone's pain and frustration. Although I take some comfort in knowing I am not alone. I have had similar right sided lower quadrant (around hip front and back) pain for 1 year now. Ranges from a burning pain in my front almost grion slightly higher which also radiates to my back ( sometimes feels like someone has stuck a BBQ skewer straight through me). 2 ultrasounds first showed polyps in gallbladder, 2nd different results, no polyps but evidence of distended Gallbladder, various blood tests and urine samples all clear so far and normal! Also had an isotope gallbladder scan, result showing chronic inflammation of gallbladder..... Doc said we can remove GB but can't guarantee it is this causing the pain.... So I said no, I'll keep it for now. The pain is under 5 on a 1-10 scale. Just always there and very annoying/ worrying. Seems to be relieved after a no. 2 ! I have just supplied a stool sample as doc said could be celiac also have a blood test this week to check for celiac disease. I was fit and healthy, eat well etc, but now feel very fatigued everyday from this pain. Still going gym as sometimes makes me feel better. I hope I can find a way to overcome this, my next option is a naturopath otherwise I will have to result in gallbladder removal. Wish I would feel normal again as you all know it ends up causing some depression due to ongoing pain worry and generally not feeling normal. Bye everyone thanks for reading if you had time ;-)
