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!

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
