Has anyone had no pain attacks but sick weekly with neasea!?  I don't have the typical pain attacks but neasea early morning & during the day.  Bloating, early fullness, can't eat much when hungry, lost 40 pounds & I wasn't over weight!?  During an ultrasound they said I had a 2.5 cm gallstone & to make lifestyle choices?!  I can't eat much of anything & stay away from everything accept some fruit, some well cooked vegetables, chicken, fish, rice, bread mainly toast, water & apple juice.  It's insane & I've been sick a year & 7 months.  I have taken medication to try & help the stomach (domperidone) off & on for 6 months at a time as they think it was  

Gastropresis.  I never had stomach surgery or have diabetes.  The only explanation is post viral gastropresis after a stomach virus.  They don't know if it's my gallbladder & won't know unless it's removed?!  Not a great situation!  I was a healthy person otherwise, not eating normally is crazy!?!!

    Why don't you look into the Ursodioxycholic acid treatment  which dissolves gall bladder stones ?

    It is not for every one I hear but it suited me as I did not have any side effects whatsoever only good effect.

    See my earlier postings you might be like me then again might not.  

    Speak to your local chemists first  and all of those I asked re Urso knew a great deal about that chemical which I believe is synthetic bile. The years treatment reduced the diameter of my stones to small ones as well as the number reduced from 5 to 2 and my symptoms of bloating pain sickness dihorea to zero.

    One of the best achievements is that I still have my gall bladder which I can look after as best I can & be sensible as possible re eating a varied diet.   The NHS do an advisory paper on that subject but don't believe all you read.

    My gallbladder was very diseased and I only ever had what I know for sure to be a gallbladder attack once, years ago. If I ever had any other attacks, I was unaware of them so they couldn't have been severe, and I only started watching my diet closely for the few months leading up to surgery. I did have mild but unpleasant nausea, however. It never made me throw up, but it was certainly annoying.

    Has anyone mentioned a HIDA scan to you? It's a really simple but effective way of figuring out how well your gallbladder is functioning. They'll test how effective your gallbladder is at releasing bile, and it's a really good indicator of whether or not you need to consider having it removed. My HIDA scan was the absolute "YES!" answer I needed when I was considering surgery.

      Thanks for the info!  I asked my gastroenterologist about the gallbladder test again as he said they weren't very reliable but I'll see what the surgeon says.  You'd think they would of done that a year ago when they ran so many tests on me!?!!  With the size of the gallstone (2.5cm's) I may not have much choice in the matter?!  A year & a half of not being able to eat much, sick & so under weight is so stressful & I'm so done with it all. Thanks for the feedback!!
