    Hi Janet,

    I too was diagnosed after admission to hospital and an ultrasound. Still awaitng MRI.

    I am trying to eat low fat but tend to eat steamed white fish and vegetables more than anything. Have lost half a stone! I get very full quickly but I put it down to the veggies!

      Hi Janet

      Good luck on the 15th. I was first duagnosed avroad on holiday as I was taken into hospital with awful pain. Since coming hpme diagnosis confirmed. Saw a consultant last week and awaiting mri. Just want it sorting but they also found an enlarged kidney so wont do anything about gall bladder till that sorted.

    If the gallstones are the cause of the trouble you need to have your gallbladder removed.

    You may be free from symtoms for a bit but eventually the stone will rear it's ugly head again.

    Try to stick to a low fat or evenno fat diet.

    My advice would be to get yourself on the list for gallbladder removal as soon as possible. You may well have to wait several months for the operation, so at least get yourself on the list .

    Take care, and keep in touch

      Yes I had my gallbladder removed at end of April.

      Better than I was but still having to be careful what to eat

      GP thinks either I have IBS or a small stone has got left in bile duct.

      Having endoscopy on Friday.

      But believe me, this is certainly better than the painI had with the gallstones.

      Good luck on 15th.

      Thinking of you

      Had Gastroscopy on Friday. It showed I have a Hiatus Hernia.

      Apparently it is quite common.

      They are not planning to do anything about it at the moment.

      Atleast I know what it is, I knew there was something going on.

      Good luck for 15th

      Thinking of you

      Love Sarah xxx
