Gallbladder issue after pregnancy

Postby riogirl71 » Thu Jan 29, 2009 3:36 am

I just wanted to write this as a warning for all of you. I never had any gallbladder issues before getting pregnant. One night when baby was about 5 weeks old, I felt an awful pain on my right side, under my ribcage. It got worse and I thought I was going to explode. At the ER they said it was my gallbladder, the scan showed my gallbladder was fine. I talked to the doctor and he said that it is very common for women that are pregnant or just gave birth to have gallbladder issues and he told me to get surgery eventhough the ultrasound showed it was fine. I did it and he said it was very diseased. the pain is unbearable so I wanted to warn you to seek help if you start having pain on your right side! It is very common but I never saw it anywhere!

Happened to me after my first pregnancy. I put it off for 13 years only to have it removed a year before I had my twins. I too was told the U/S looked normal except for "sludge"... Well the "sludge was disease! It WAS unbearable by the time it was removed!
