Sorry ithis is not in the right place, but I would be interested in the opinion of people who have already had their bypasses as to whether the gall bladder should automatically be removed during the operation.
I’m asking this because I have just had a miserable 2 weeks where, probably through my own stupid fault cos I ate too much bready stuff one day, I endured dry retching, diarrhorea, pain and, now officially diagnosed, gallstones.
When I had my initial consultation I was told they usually remove the gall bladder during the bypass operation to prevent possible gallstones further down the line. When I came round from the op I still had mine!
I now have to endure a possible further operation to remove my gall bladder in a few weeks time and I do feel a bit resentful that, if the gall bladder had been removed at the outset, I wouldn’t have had a miserable 2 weeks suffering. I would be interested to hear other people’s views on this/ Many thanks. Julie x
