gall Bladder issues while pregnant

Anna - posted on 02/10/2014 ( 1 mom has responded )




I started having gallbladder attacks when I was 5 months pregnant and they wanted me to get it removed but I didn't feel comfortable with doing it while being pregnant. They prescribed me pain killers and I had a few more attacks but the medicine took all my pain away. I had my baby and then the attacks stopped. Now I'm worried about getting pregnant again? I really don't want to have it taken out if I don't have to!? Anyone have experience with this?

Yep... I was 4 months when my kidney and gallbladder both started to act up this was with our 3rd... They told me they only would have removed in before 20 weeks do to high risk of miscarriage or preterm labor.. So I said not going to happen... So had my son a year ago have had a few problem with both still but like you I don't want to have it taken out unless need be.. I would say speak with your doctor, as I know they told us that if were going to plan on anymore kids it would need to come out as it pregnancy will just increases the stones and slug... I had no problems with it the 1st or 2nd pregnancy...
