Re: Gallstones + pregnancy
Yes, it definitely sounds like you have gallbladder problems. It is not at all uncommon for women to develop gallbladder issues after childbirth. Don't know whether it's related to changes in hormones or what.
It is true that many people live many years with gallstones; very painful attacks can be from when you are passing stones down the biliary duct. The danger is that if the stone lodges in the duct, not only will you be in intense pain, but they will then have to do emergency surgery to remove the stone, if you are pregnant that would just add another layer of complications.
