Still have my gallbladder untill I see consultant. Being doing ok since my attack but the past few days I have started to feel really nauseous. Yesterday was the worst. Also during the night. Also feel the need to move my bowels but then not much comes out.

Is this normal. Trying to watch food intake but don't know what has set this off.

      Thanks for your reply. I have been to chemist for something for the nausea but doesn't seem to have helped. I don't see surgeon till 2nd July.

      I have also read what others have said about removal and it is scaring me a bit but like you I think it will be better to have it done. I don't want another painful episode like had some weeks ago.

      I take vitamins and also started on Milk Thistle.

      I do find drinking ginger ale helps.

      Take care

    Your gastroenterologist is the best person to advise but does he/ she know about the fact that for some patients with gall stones ursodioxycholic acid dissolves cholesterol stones and sludge.  A liver function test is done before and during treatment. Th tablets raise the bile acid level.
