I am looking for advice for my daughter. She was in hospital recently where she was diagnosed with gallstones and an inflamed gallbladder. She has to return in 2 or 3 months for surgery, but has to lose some weight first. She is still experiencing pain and nausea - how much housework can she expect to be able to do? How 'easy' should she be taking things?
hi .dreaded gallstones very painfull indeed ,to help with the
pain try buscopan and cocodamol .avoid all fatty foods even the smallest amount of full fat milk can trigger it gravey another bad food ,crisp also ,as for rest no good it really is food that will cause pain .after op the first few days will be pain ful about 6 weeks taking it easy as it is key hole surgery ,good luck xx
Thanks for the tips. My daughter is discovering herself what foods trigger her pain and nausea. The gp advised her to eat sensibly and she has lost some weight, mainly through not eating very much, but she hasn't been told how much she needs to lose.
