I found out that this intense pain I have been getting for nearly 2 and a half months now is very likely gallbladder attacks. I am scheduled for an ultrasound to confirm it on the 3rd of February. If it is indeed gallbladder attacks, they suggest I have it removed immediately. Also, if I have another major attack that includes vomitting & fever they want to do an emergency removal even if I have not yet had the ultrasound. These attacks happen 3-5 times a week & last for many hours, so bad sometimes that I am not even able to do basic tasks or care for my 3month old son (don't worry, hubby takes care of him so he's not being neglected or anything).
Now to my questions. Is it painful to have your gallbladder removed? What is the procedure like? Are there restrictions on eating afterwards? What are the pros & cons? Any other info would be great as well. Thank you!
