i have gallstones that are blocking my gall bladder from releasing bile. there right in the bile duct... however after many trips to the hospital and addmissions they are still refusing to operate untill baby is born... because it will be a high risk opperation as i am to far gone in pregnancy. they said they wount even induce in a few weeks then operate as it will be to much truma on my body. ugggggggggggggggh!!! this might sound like i am being soft but the pain is so intense i just want to burst into tears (i was crying my little heart out to my surgeon lol) i have been put on a fatfree diet for a month now... however it makes no difference. was addmitted on new years day and i was given roast potatos with gravy eventhough they knew i wasnt allowed (i was given it because it was all they had) em.. not good enough ! anyway, they have basically said there is nothing they will do for me untill the babys born or they burst! they dont seem to give a crap that i have up to 3 attacks a day and on the odd ocassion can last for over 8 hours! not to mention last time i was addmitted it was also infected... (dr told me i am more likely to rupture after an infection)
anyone else been threw this....and how did u cope with the pain??? and anyone telling me i need to control my diet dont bother posting because that is something i work extremly hard at.

That is sucky. Over here they think of it as more high risk to leave the gall bladder in, as the pain it causes can cause more stress on the baby.

wish that was the case in the uk... my dr, midwife, nurses and the surgeon said nothing will be dont about it untill birth.... so basically i have to suffer. i want whats best for my baby (which is not to have the procedure done) however its just to painfull i wish my gallbladder was ripped from me lol
