have you had your gallbladder removed while pregnant??

I am going to be having my gallbladder removed in about a month and a half due to gallstones and incredible pain when i eat. I am now 11 weeks pregnant so they want to wait until im at least 17 weeks to do the surgery if possible. I am so nervous to have the surgery and am afraid for my unborn baby. have you had your gallbladder removed while pregnant and how did it go????????????

  • I didn't have it removed while pregnant but gave you a bump. Mine failed while I was pregnant. The doctor who did the sono said it was full of "sludge" and said we should change my diet first then if that didn't work, we'd do surgery. I had it removed a week and a half after my son was born.

    I hope you get an answer and good luck to you.
