  • Yes, I had mine removed about 3 months after child birth. Ive read that gallbladder stones affect a lot of women after childbirth. If you have any other questions you can PM me.

  • i started having preoblems with it about a month after birth and had to have it removed in an emergency about 2.5 months after birth. It was infecting my appendix...be careful!!

  • my gallbladder "blew" only about 20 days after birth.... the surgeon told me it was actually pretty common, something about pregnancy and the gallbladder but I didn't ask many questions at the time, I just wanted the pain to stop. In the time after, though, I've yet to find any research or reading material of any substance on the matter
