So I ended up in hospital last night with severe pain in my stomach, turns out to be gallstones, apparently the fact that I had a baby 8 weeks ago puts me at higher risk of this. So they sent me home and now I'm awaiting an ultra sound scan and then if all comes back confirmed I will be having my gall bladder out. I'm now so scared to eat as I don't want to eat the wrong thing and set it off again as the pain is intense and as I'm breast feeding can't take strong pain killers, but at the same time I need to eat for breastfeeding... Anyone else had this problem and have any tips to keep the flare ups at bay until I get my gall bladder removed?

I had this a few years ago (not baby related). I ate little and often and avoided fatty foods.

Ha led mine out after several bouts of thinking I was dying. Dead easy and never had s problem again. Pain killers wouldn't really help any way but my surgeon told me to take bus plan prophylactically before the surgery which did help. High fibre and loooooow fat is the key X

Bus plan... Lord help me ! Buscopan X

How long did you have to wait to have your gallbladder out? And the buscopan did you take it all the time or just when in pain?
Sorry for all the questions lol x
