gallbladder surgery and pregnancy????

I have had moderate to severe upper abdominal pain since about feruary. It happens on and off but is increasing in frequency. It is in the center of my stomach right below my ribs and the pain shoots through to the back of my back in hte center right below my shoulder blades. Well anyways I went for a gallbladder ultrasound and it took hte lady a long time to get all the pictures and I dont get the results until monday at the earliest. my dr was thinking it was an ulcer but with treatment its still not gone and i dont have the bacteria in my blood that indicates ulcer. NO MEDICINE Helps. I have tried taking all the over the counter stuff and also have been prescribed 3 different meds in the last few months. Could this indicate something is wrong with my gallbladder??oh and I am currently 9 weeks pregnant. can you have your gallbladder removed while preggo????

  • I don't think so cause my sister in law was pregnant and was having problems with her gallbladder and they wouldn't take it out until the baby was born

  • Now days it shouldn't be problem to remove the gallbladder. Of course you will need to mention it to be sure.
