Symptoms For Removal

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have some pain in my ribs , back and front which is not too bad  .

I get full on small  amounts of food  and  my diet  is severely  restricted .

I can't eat meat,  milk,  eggs , salad or vegetables,  plus many  other foods.   Will gallbladder  removal  make this better  ?  I'd love to be able to eat a proper meal again!

    If your problems are gallbladder related then there is a very good chance that removal will alleviate your symptoms. I could eat hardly anything without extreme painful bloating, and pains. I had my gallbladder removed on 14th July, and since eight weeks after surgery I can eat anything at all and have no problems! I can’t eat huge portions any more, but that’s not a bad thing!

      I had multiple stones with a couple of very large ones. And they definitely caused the problems with eating, bloating, acid reflux, and pain under the ribs and back of right shoulder blade. If you have symptoms it is very for the gallbladder to be out. It doesn’t tend to get better, and can only get worse.

    I'd make sure your symptoms are related to the gallbladder and the stones. It is possible to have stones and not need gallbladder removal. There are many digestive disorders that share groups of the same symptoms. It would be horrible to pin your hopes on removal to find out it was something else entirely smile
