Hey all,

It's been awhile since i posted on the forum. I'm about 2 years post surgery and i cannot begin to tell you how this surgery has changed my life for the best. I feel amazing and i look so much better than i did.

Unfortunately i discovered that i have gallstones and i'm not sure if this is a side effect of having the sleeve procedure.

Has anyone experienced gallstones? If so what was the treatment of them?

Hope to get some answers the pain is unbearable when it strikes.

I think that they remove the gallbladder if the stones are bad enough or are recurring. I have heard many people say that gallstones can be a side effect of rapid massive weight loss. Good luck and congrats on your success :)

Remove your gallbladder. They don't get better. It's a side effect from losing weight with or without surgery. I had mine removed about 7 months after the sleeve. I tried everything to avoid surgery but nothing worked. The surgery was a breeze for me. I wish I would have had the surgery as soon as I was diagnosed with gallstones and not waited until an emergency situation. Good luck to you!

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!
