Since my first attack in August ,I have been researching about Gallstones , what not to eat symptoms,is surgery for the removal of the gallbladder and stones the best thing. The list goes on.
There is a lot of scarey stuff out there on the www but also a lot of positives
Personally I have been lucky ,or some say unlucky ,enough to have had 2 major attacksearch since August,bother lasting 13 days from start to finish. I have had aches and pains, but before being diagnosed as having gallstones, I put it down to my job and getting older. Looking back I can relate those aches and pains to having gallstones.
I've been fortunate that non of the food "avoid at all costs" have caused any pain or attacks. The onset of the first attack I think was due to raw onion. I had the classic pain in the chest an hour after eating followed by stomach ache then followed by pain under the right ribs 3 days later.
I have a physical job and whilst there in no significant proof that any physical activity can cause/increase a gallstone attack/pain, I sure know when I've been bending more than usual.
Back to why I wanted to postrich. It's because that we're not one size fits all.
Don't let the so called horror stories scare you.
If you're thinking about surgery then assess your quality of life now and what it was and could be.
As mentioned in a post I commented on before, if I don't need it then take it away.
I'm counting down the days to my surgery and looking forward to a 2018 of happy times.
