  • It;s your GALL bladder. I'm not sure about having it removed when your pregnant cause that requires getting put under, but I would think your doctor would access that and let you know what it the safest option. I had mine removed when I was in the 8th grade.

  • They might just put you on a restricted diet until the baby is born. Your doctor should talk to you about all your options if you are having gall bladder issues.

  • We were shopping on black friday and I had really really bad heart burn, and then I just collapsed in Wal-Mart. I woke up and had no Gall Bladder. Apparently mine had ruptured, but I had no previous symptoms, just that day.

  • I had gall bladder problems while I was pregnant with my first and I had to wait until after my baby was born to get it removed. I got it removed about 2 months after he was born and so happy. But I think that you have to wait unless there is an emergency.

  • I have terrible gas pains since mine was removed. I should take out stock in Beano. Anyone else have gas pains who had it removed?

  • I was in the ER last night for gall bladder pains, I thought it was preterm labor -smacks self- well.. my SO did I was just scared and in a lot of pain... anyway the nurse there said that having it removed this late in my pregnacy (31 weeks) wouldnt be a good idea,

    Meds and less dairy I think thats what she said would help.

    take care hon I know it can hurt like a bitch
