Hi all.

I was diagnosed with gallstones. And biliary colic I was told they think I have a gallstone lodged in my bile duct. And since May my liver function blood tests have been abnormal.

I have my MRCP MIR scan tomorrow. And I'm really nervous. Never had any other scan than an ultrasound and xray what happens? Has anyone ever had one. What will they be looking for? What is usually the outcome xx

    The gallbladder needs to come out. The stones are obviously causing a blockage to your liver. I had the same and had to be hospitalized. Hope you get the surgery fast, and dont worry it is such an easy procedure. Good luck.

    I agree with Marketa here the main thing is the gallstone or stones need to be removed sooner rather than later.

    Mine showed up on ultrasound scan so that was all I needed.

    Get yourself on the operating list because it can be 6 - 9 months waiting.

    In the meantime keep to a low fat or even no fat diet, this will help.

    Take care and keep in touch

    Praying for you

    Love Sarah xxx
