Gall Bladder Issues?

by Egina Beldon

English Translation by Courtney Hanrahan and Richard Laurion

I’ve got this point on my right side, here. I wondered what it might be.  I never heard of this but someone said it could be my gallbladder. The first time it became an issue was when I was pregnant. Out of nowhere I got this sharp pain. It was so painful it was hard to sit down.  It was difficult to walk and I’d have to sit and wait for about an hour for the pain to go away. It continued to hurt throughout the pregnancy.  After I delivered my baby it just went away and I didn’t think about it again.  Well, about a month later I got the same sudden pain again- so bad it made me cry. My husband brought me to the E.R. and they thought it was my gallbladder. They referred me back to my family doctor who did an ultrasound exam and saw some stones and said the gallbladder needs to come out.  I’ve come here to see if you can help.  Do you have other treatment ideas, other than taking the gallbladder?  What about some medicine?  If the gallbladder is removed, what will that be like?  How will it affect me?  What will I do?
