Re: Anyone have gallstones during pregnancy?
I was diagnosed with an IMPACTED gallbladder a few weeks ago (actually probably more like a month ago) anyway I have had to completly change my diet, no fatty foods, fried foods, red meat, spicy foods, dairy... all things that I LIVED on. I miss it all so much. anyway they told me that they will not (WILL NOT) do surgury to remove it unless it was an emergency ie: infected, causing so much pain that its unbearable but with the diet change I've been lucky to just ahve a bit of pain here and there. they absolutly will not do surgury in the first trimester because of the risk of miscarriage and they absolutly will not do surgury in the 3rd trimester because there is simply no room (of course unless there is an emergency) so the only time they will consider doing surgury is the second trimester. but still since i am fine for now they want to hold off until after the baby is born. anyway thats what all the docs and the research I did told me. so here I am just waiting
