I am 21 1/2 weeks - due August 4, 2010. I was recently diagnosed with gallstones and I was given two weeks to decide if I want to have my gallbladder out. If I decide to wait he said be prepared to wait at least 5 months. I am torn, I am in pain and discomfort constantly. How do I weigh my comfort against the risk of my son's life? The Dr says it is a fairly low risk but to me any risk is bad. My fear is just that if I wait what if it gets worse? Please anyone with any advise about surgery while pregnant or about gallstones.......
