running with gallstones

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi, I am new to this group after being diagnosed with gallstones last Friday.  I was a bit gutted but at least I know what is causing the pain and its not indigestion like the Doctor was telling me.

Anyway,  I am currently training for a half marathon and its now only 4 weeks away, the last few long runs I have experienced pain in the gallbladder area.

Does anyone here run whilst having gallstones, do you experience pain whilst running, should I stop running and forget about my half, so many questions, sorry ?

    I have a low functioning gallbladder (21%) in November. Mine seems to be getting better however I know that it’s gonna be a cat and mouse game until I get it out. 

    It doesn’t really bother me most of the time, however I bike and I’ve noticed when I’m really pushing hard sometimes I’ll get some sharp pain in my gallbladder area.

    Yes mine seems to be when I am pushing on a bit. I am going to slow down my pace and see if it makes a difference. I have trained so hard tbrough all of the rubbish weather and will be gutted to miss it but know I need to be sensible. Thank you

    Because you are basically very healthy it would be an extremely  good idea to fully research ursodioxycholic acid dissolution of gall stones if they are cholesterol based because that treatment will dissolve cholesterlol

    gall stones. This is a scientific clinical fact..........  I did it! I still have my gall bladder with no symptoms.

    Finding a GP who will prescribe the tablets is quite another matter. A liver function test is required before and during the treatment which might last 6 months or less or more. You seem to be a first class candidate as I was for that very effective way of getting rid of those stones in a quite good gall bladder.
