I have been diagnosed with gallstones following six months of painful attacks after giving birth to my son in October. I eat a very low fat diet and take tramadol, paracetamol and buscopan for attacks (doesn't always work though!) I have called for ambulances three times when the pain has got too much I also drink flaxseed tea daily. I have lost 6 stone since giving birth which is great but would rather be fat and not in pain!! I'm constantly scared of having an attack when I'm at home with my son and consequently am not eating a great deal while hubby is at work, hence the massive weight loss! I'm on the waiting list for surgery, however if anyone has any tips on how I can reduce the amount or severity of these attacks then that would be great it literally has taken over my life and sick of living in fear of the pain!! Also I'm concerned that surgery may not work and that the problem might come back post surgery. I haven't been offered any alternative treatment from the hospital other than have my gallbladder removed, is there another way?? Any tips and advice much appreciated!
