Hi,

I’m currently 5 months post-op, I have been experiencing some severe stomach pain. My doctor found tiny Gallstones and wants to surgically remove my Gallbladder. I’m nervous about having another surgery, but this stomach pain can be unbearable at times. Anyone else experiencing pain from Gallstones?

Yep, it felt like I was being stabbed in the upper right of my stomach near my ribs. The recovery was super easy and its done laparoscopically no need to worry. You'll be ok.

You know I was just lyi,g in bed and thinking. If after a leg amputation you can have Phantom Leg pain, after GallBladder removal can you have Phantom GallBladder,or Liver,pain? Just speculating a little

I dealt with the same thing and had mine removed laparoscopically on 9/4. I was discharged the same day and didn’t need any opioid pain meds. Tylenol covered my pain just fine. Honestly I felt so good I probably could have gone back to work the next day.

The devil! Get it removed! At my 2month mark I got sick as hell! Multiple visits to the ER. They assumed it was from my sleeve. 25 pounds and a month later find out it's my gallbladder. I was so sick I had to get potassium by IV for a day in order to have it removed. Everyone body is different. Mine had me gagging, foaming at the mouth, couldn't keep food or fluids down and sharp pains under my breast. THE WORST! The removal was easy. I had sludge instead of stones so they just KNEW it wasnt my gallbladder. I felt so much better once it was gone!

My gallbladder and I split up a few years ago. It was NOT a healthy relationship for me. I’ve never regretted the breakup.

I am seven months post-bypass-surgery and having terrible stomach pains and vomiting at least once a day. Had an ultrasound and they found gallstones. Have an appointment with the surgeon for this Friday and am afraid he's going to say I need another surgery to remove the gallbladder. Can they dissolve the stones? Or am I going to have to suck it up and have to deal with another surgery? This will be the third, as I had emergency surgery 10 days post-op for a blockage and was hospitalized for 10 days with that one. Needless to say, with all the anesthesia my hair has been falling out in fistfuls. I was hoping it was going to get better, but now with the prospect of more anesthesia... well, baldness, here I come....

I had mine removed 3 years ago, long before I ever seriously considered surgery and it was a rough surgery and recovery for me. It took about 2 weeks to feel somewhat normal.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      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".
