2 yrs ago i had my gallbladder taken out. i had stones and it was also giving me pancreatitis. i am now 10 weeks pregnant.  for the last 2-3 weeks my stomach (way up high under/beneath breast bone) hurts.  and if i am siting down and bending over for a while it hurts. could it be due to the surgery and possible scar tissue?

I have three kids.  My boys were born before my gall bladder surgery and I had picture perfect pregnancies and deliveries. 

I got pregnant with my daughter after my surgery.  I think 2 years.  I was sick on and off the whole time, to the point of being admitted into the hospital days at a time.  In 5 months, I had 5 trips to the hospital all lasting 5 days or longer.  I ended up having polyhydramnios and preeclampsia.  I had to give birth by c-section at 30 weeks.

Now, I don't know if that has anything to do with me not having a gall bladder and I know every pregnancy is different, but that's how it went for me.

 I did have my son about 2 1/2 yrs after having my gallbladder removed and it did hurt where the incisions were.  My doc said it was scar tissue stretching.  I also had cracked a few ribs the year before getting prego,  from having pnumonia and that hurt too!
