Re: Pregnant With Gallstone. A Few Questions.

As far using diet to control gallbladder pain, the best route is to eat a very low fat diet. The primary reason that your gallbladder contracts (which is usually what causes the pain), is that there is fat in your digestive system. The purpose of the bile that is squeezed out of the gallbladder is to help break down fat.

If you are not going to breast feed there is a drug called Ursodiol/Actigall that can help by dissolving stones, which could lessen your pain. It would help as a short term bridge until your surgery.
