gentlemum1 Mon 07-Sep-09 23:23:04

yes, sometimes when i have food like butter etc i feel very sickly. i have not been eating much due to this

I have recently had my gall bladder out and I have noticed that alot of mums are getting gall stones just after delivery of babies and having to have gall bladder out.
If fatty things are affecting you i would mention it to doc and ask for an ultrasound.My friend at the chemist where i work had her gasll bladder out 7 weeks after birth of DD

dont ignore it...i got pancreatitis due to the doctors not seeing my gall stones. and had to be put on a drip for 3 weeks. Steer away from all dairy,any fatty meat and bscuits and cake. I know it sounds like most foods,but if you can find a trigger than its a good way of self diagnosing. Also it will stop you getting an attack if it is gall stones

check if he is he doing CRP and amylase plus full blood count. These are all good makers to see if there is any inflammatory process going on internally
