Re: Anyone have gallstones during pregnancy?

I had gallstones while pregnant w/ dd last year. The dr. said I could either do surgery or wait until after the baby. I decided to wait. I changed my diet completely to whatever didn't make the pain come back. I ate boiled chicken, fruit, veggies, cereal w/ skim milk. I also ate plain pasta to fill myself up. It was hard but I wasn't going to risk the baby for surgery. I had the surgery once she was 3 months old and it was very very easy and I was up and around w/ dd in less than a day. I know how you feel with the pain. It was very painful and overbearing. I took warm showers to have the pain subside for at least 20 minutes. Depending on how bad your gallstones are you might be advised to get the surgery while pregnant. I hope things get better for you mama!
